Pistachios

Pistachios

Pistachios are expensive because the pistachio trees take up to 20 years to reach peak production, and are “biennial-bearing”, meaning a light harvest every other year. These nuts used to be dyed red to hide stains caused by handpicking. Most pistachios nowadays are machine picked and dyeing is unnecessary.
