The first wild pistachio tree dates back to 7AD from the region of Aleppo. By the
3rd century, the pistachio spread to neighbouring countries ans in the the course
of the following centuries, we find the tree widespread around the Mediterranean.
Meanwhile in the Aleppo Valley the pistachio blossomed producing a dozen varieties,
a unique diversity!
These varieties differ both in the color ans the size of the fruit on the tree.
As the taste ans scent, the soil ans position of the trees provide the variations.

salted, in everyday cooking or Haute Cuisine.
