National Pistachio Day 2017

February 26, 2017 in the USA

National Pistachio Day is observed on February 26, 2017. The pistachio seed, commonly thought of as a nut, is a culinary nut, not a botanical nut. The kernels are often eaten whole, either fresh or roasted and salted, and are also used in ice cream, pistachio butter, pistachio paste and confections.

China is the top pistachio consumer worldwide, with annual consumption of 80,000 tons, while the United States consumes 45,000 tons. Iran, the United States and Turkey are the major producers of pistachios. The trees are planted in orchards, and take approximately seven to ten years to reach significant production.
