This Is National Pistachio Day!
Celebrate this day by eating them, and learning more about them.
Pistachios grow on trees and are native to the Middle East. A pistachio tree takes 7-10 years to mature, so its a long wait to get that first nut. California is the major producing state in the U.S.
The reason red dye is added to the nuts is due to consumer demand for the color. Its open hull is unique. The nut is ripe when the hull splits open. Pistachios are nutritious, so eat them up!
