How to recognize Sicilian Pistachio PDO?
It is a recurring question among pistachio buyers, but with an answer that is not simple and obvious.
Let’s start from the anatomy of this type of dried fruit, in fact Sicilian Pistachio PDO has a more elongated shape than others, it has a length almost twice the diameter, unlike the squat and rounded shapes of the foreign pistachio.
In addition to the anatomical structure of the products, however, another detail that should not be underestimated is the color. In fact, the pistachio is purplish and not bright green as it is thought.
Reason why the cream is “dark”.
Harvesting takes place at the end of summer, between August and September, but only in alternate years: one year the harvest, the following year the buds are removed to protect the plant.
Representing an important source of income for the Bronte people, Pistachio is renamed “green gold“, due to its high commercial value.
In fact, an infinite variety of products derived from pistachio processing are produced, such as the famous pistachio pesto for pasta sauce, pistachio ice cream, pistachio biscuits, pistachio cream and many others.
The Bronte Pistachio is able to satisfy 90% of the Italian production and 2% of the world one.
