Iran is one of the pistachio production forerunners in the world and this superiority is due to its geographical location. Iranian pistachios are luxury products exported to many countries worldwide. Moreover, it is worth noting that the pistachio name is taken from Pisteh, a Persian word. Iranian pistachio has unique properties that make it special, and since they have a high amount of fat, their taste and flavor are known worldwide
What is Pistachio?
Pistachios are the seeds of the pistachio tree. These seeds are edible and grow in dry and hot regions, and it is generally believed that pistachios are native to Iran. Pistachios are known as nuts, and they have been widely consumed as a snack for many years. These seeds can be used fresh or dried, and due to their excellent taste and yellowish-green color, they are highly used in making various foods.
Iranian Pistachios Origin
The pistachio tree is native to central Asia, including Iran. The pistachio name is believed to have a Persian origin. Pistachio has long been cultivated in different parts of Iran. The pistachio tree is thought to have been domesticated and cultivated in Iran about 3 to 4 thousand years ago.
Iranian Pistachio Types
There are three categories of Iranian pistachios: round, long and jumbo pistachios.
Fandoghi pistachio, which is a round pistachio, has a sharp tip. If we want to describe its appearance in a simple way, we can say that Fandoghi pistachio (round pistachio) has a round shape and is about a hazelnut size or even larger. Fandoghi pistachio (round pistachio) is also one of the leading Iranian export pistachios. The pistachio shell has a beige color.
Another category of pistachios is long pistachios, which are available in three cultivars: Akbari pistachio (super long pistachio), Ahmad Aghaei pistachio (long pistachio) and Badami pistachio (semi-long pistachio).
Akbari pistachio (super long pistachio) is a very long and well-shaped pistachio and it has its own customers almost all over the world. This popularity has various reasons, which, according to pistachio experts, is due to the easy peeling of this pistachio and its classification as luxury pistachio. Moreover, it usually has a higher price than other pistachios.
Ahmad Aghaei pistachio (long pistachio) has an oval shape. It is bigger and longer than Fandoghi Pistachio (round pistachio). This high-quality pistachio is one of the most popular and commercial types of pistachios produced in Iran. Ahmad Aghaei pistachio (long pistachio) is generally open-shell. In simple words, Ahmad Aghaei pistachio (long pistachio) is open-shell on both sides. The shell color of Ahmad Aghaei Pistachio (long pistachio) is light beige color.
Badami pistachio (semi-long pistachio) has a relatively long shape, and is generally similar to almond, which is the main reason for naming this type of pistachio. This pistachio is small in size and has a low ounce (pistachio ounce is a scale showing the smallness or largeness of pistachio).
Kale Ghoochi (Jumbo Pistachio): The third category of pistachios is Jumbo pistachio which is known as Kale Ghoochi in the local language. This type of pistachio is the largest variety of Iranian pistachios. Kale Ghoochi (Jumbo Pistachio) is known as one of the large pistachio cultivars that has a round or hazelnut shape. This pistachio is similar to Fandoghi Pistachio (round pistachio) in appearance but, in general, Kale Ghoochi pistachio (Jumbo Pistachio) is larger and heavier than Fandoghi Pistachio (round pistachio). Kale Ghoochi pistachio (Jumbo Pistachio) is famous for being open-shell in a high percentage and having a large size and excellent taste.
