Pistachios

The pistachio tree is a plant that has both grown wild and been cultivated in Iran since ancient times. Thus, the wild pistachio forests in the northeast of Iran on the border with Afghanistan and Turkmenistan are already thousands of years old. It is believed that pistachios were deliberately cultivated more than 3,000 years ago.

In today's Iran, pistachio production is of considerable importance to the entire agricultural sector. The Iranian share of the total world production is about 55%.
