Pistachio Tree:
Pistachios are grown in the many cities of southern Kerman province, Such as Kerman, Sirjan and Rafsanjan. Pistachio trees
need very little water but great care. They mature and fruits 6-7 years after cultivation and live a long life, Sometimes more

At present Iranian Pistachio processed under completely healthy environments and preserved Conditions. There are
automatic terminals in the region for Skinning, drying, sorting and packing in a proper way that Pistachio harvested at
