Pistachio lovers, rejoice! September is arguably the best time of the year for Wonderful Pistachios enthusiasts because that’s when harvest begins. Not to mention, a huge bumper crop is on its way to help support global demand (yes, we’re that popular). Learn more about all things pistachio during harvest season…
FACT: California is the leading producer of pistachios worldwide, and our pistachios have been happily baking in the sun all summer so they can get crackin’ this fall. When they ripen in late summer or early autumn, the pistachio kernel fills inside the shell so vigorously that it splits the shell.
Did you also know pistachios made their way to the United States in the early 1930s? To think we went that long without them.
