Pistachio is the fruit nut of pistachio tree.The pistachio tree was found in Turkey and Iran. At that time, the pistachio was the diet of noble men.

The main rival of Iranian pistachio is American pistachio.Americans harvest three tons of pistachio per hectare while the same amount is 700 and 900 kg of pistachio. Perhaps the biggest problem is the price of Iranian pistachio against its rival. The reason for lower price of the American product is their mechanization of farming. While harvesting pistachio in Iran requires 20 to 30 individuals, the same space requires 2 individuals in America.

The most important take on this is our lack of agricultural machinery and Irrigation types. Because in U.S drip irrigation is used while in Iran the flooding and traditional method is in order, this method can cause water loss and weeds growth.

The process of cutting weeds can be costly. Many foreign customers prefer Iranian pistachio because of its unremarkable taste, they are big customers of this product and since the have become accustomed to it they don’t wish to use American pistachio.

The most important reason for Iranian pistachio’s taste is weather and soil of Iran which helps the growth of such product.
