National Pistachio Day is a nutty day. You can celebrate National Pistachio Day by eating them, and learning more about them. We're going to help with the learning part........ read on.

Nutty Pistachio Facts:

  • Pistachios grow on trees. They are native to the Middle East.
  • Its a long wait to get the first nut. A pistachio tree takes 7-10 years to mature.
  • California is the major producer in the U.S.
  • Pistachios are harvested in September by machines that shake the trees. It less than a minute.
  • The red dye is added to the nuts is only due to consumer demand for the color.
  • Its open hull is unique. The nut is ripe when the hull splits open.
  •  People in the Middle East call it the "smiling nut" and in China its called the "happy nut".
  • Pistachios are nutritious, so eat them up!

Celebrate today by eating Pistachios. They are great plain as a snack, in ice cream, and in a wide range of desserts.


Origin of National Pistachio Day:

Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. We actually had the opportunity to research this day, along with a national pistachio organization. The group approached us because they didn't understand why this day could be in February. They wanted to move this day, or create a new one to celebrate the September harvest of the pistachio crop. They also wanted to make the new day a national one. Making it a true "National"  day proved to be too long of a process and time consuming. They felt that congress had more important things to do.
