Pistachios… True Royal Snack!

Humans have eaten pistachios for more than 9,000 years, which makes them the original prehistoric snack. According to recent archaeological evidence in Turkey, we started eating them in 7,000 B.C. Native to the Middle East, it is one of the oldest flowering nut trees and one of only two nuts mentioned in the Bible (Genesis 43:11).

Flourishing in hot climates, pistachios spread from the Middle East to the Mediterranean, quickly becoming a treasured delicacy among royalty, travellers and common folk alike. In Persia, pistachio trading and ownership of pistachio groves mean riches and high status. In China, it is known as “the happy fruit” and in Iran, “the smiling fruit”.

A true royal nut, the Queen of Sheba demanded that the entire region’s pistachio harvest be set aside for her. Early gourmands such as Apicius from the first century included pistachios in his classical cookbook. Pistachios were also indispensable to early explorers and traders along the ancient Silk Road thanks to their high nutritional value and long shelf life. Legend has it that pistachios were featured in the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, built in 700 B.C. by King Nebuchadnezzar for his wife Amytis.
