Day of pistachio

It always falls on February 26th every year.

Pistachios are one of the oldest flowering walnut trees. People have been using them for at least 9,000 years. They are also mentioned in the Bible in the Old Testament as one of two types of nuts.

Pistachio is called a happy nut (China) or a smiling nut (Middle East).

Pistachio is a tree and the original area is in Central Asia and the Middle East. The largest producers of pistachios are Iran, the United States and Turkey but are also grown in China, Syria and Greece.

When transporting pistachios in shipping, special rules must be observed. Pistachios are susceptible to self-ignition when transported in large volumes as they contain a high fat content and a low water content.

Nuts can be eaten fresh, roasted or part of food. They are suitable for a reduction diet because they are saturated in small amounts. They contain iron and copper that are well absorbed along with vitamin C. They are a source of vitamin B6, manganese and a good source of protein, fiber and phosphorus. They are also suitable for pregnant women for their nutritional composition.

Pistachios have a beige color and a green color. Empty shells are useful for recycling. They are used on the floor of indoor plants for drainage and soil retention for up to two years. As a mulch for scrubs and plants (for acidic soils) as a medium for orchids and as a complement to composting. Around the plants can be given shells from salted pistachios as protection against slugs. Shells can be used to make jewelry, rattles and other products.

That's why, today, give away pistachios as a gift and do not just do something for health, but you will also be pleased with someone.
