The pistachio, scientifically known as Pistacia vera, is native to ancient Persia (now Iran), and now grown in myriad countries around the world, including our own. Nearly all the United States’ pistachio crop comes from California, and at least half a million pounds of that crop, annually, are sold at Trader Joe’s. In fact, pistachios are among our best-selling nuts. Trader Joe’s Raw Pistachio Nutmeats are harvested and shelled in California’s Kern County, situated at the southern end of the vast and fertile San Joaquin Valley. Inside the bag you’ll find only the much sought-after insides of the nut – the meat – of US Grade #1 pistachios. Because they’re removed from the shells, the only effort you need to make to enjoy them is to open the bag and reach right in. Pistachios are packed with protein, fiber and unsaturated fats, making them a nourishing, healthy snack.
Our cost for Raw Pistachio Nutmeats (and a number of other nuts) has come down over the past year, and we’ve been able to lower our retail price as a result. We’re selling each eight ounce bag of Raw Pistachio Nutmeats for $5.99 – that’s $1.50 less than our price last year at this time! Healthy for your body, and your budget, too. You’ll find them with the nuts and dried fruits, at your neighborhood Trader Joe’s.
