We've taken the work out of eating pistachios with these raw, organic shelled pistachio meats! Now you can easily blend these pistachios into cookies, cereal, yoghurt, or fruit salad. Native to Turkey and the surrounding areas of Asia Minor, where trees are carefully tended to for years. It takes a lot of time to grow delicious pistchios, with the trees only beginning to bear fruit after six years and not producing full harvests of fruit until the tree is fifteen to twenty years old. But the tasty nut is worth the wait. Chock full of minerals, antioxidants, and fiber, these pistachios taste good and will make you feel good!
