Production & Sourcing
First, mature pistachio nuts are harvested from the trees during the late summer months when they reach peak ripeness. The outer hull, or shell, is then removed through mechanical processing or by soaking the nuts in water. The remaining shells, or “skins,” are often mechanically removed, revealing the pale green pistachio kernels.
