Before Autumn comes

The Pistachio!

In Greece the best Pistachios are grown on the island of Aegina, situated an hour away from Athens. They have been cultivated there since 1860, later on spreading to other parts of Attica and Greece. This “Fistiki Aeginis” variety is cultivated in small family farms, providing the island’s population with its main source of income.

Aegina’s ideal climate and unique soil composition are responsible for the exceptional flavour and aroma of this nut. It has earned well-deserved recognition, distinguishing it from other pistachios, by being considered the best of its kind in the Mediterranean.

The exclusive right to identify the pistachio as "Aegina pistachio" was secured by the E.U. regulation of 1263/96, protecting the local pistachio from those of other regions.
