Pistachio Nuts

Pistachios are harvested starting in early September through October depending on the area they are grown.  The trees are shaken with a mechanical shaker onto tarps, instead of the orchard floor.  They are collected on the tarps to be dried and de-hulled and no human hands will touch them during harvest because any hand oil would stain the shells.

Pistachios are a cholesterol free snack, a one oz serving of pistachios has as much potassium as an orange and pistachios contain more than 10% of the daily value of dietary fiber and essential vitamins and minerals like B6, thiamin, copper and phosphorous. Earl’s just got a shipment of delicious roasted and salted pistachios from Nurses Pistachio Orchards in Paso Robles.
