Afghan Green Pistachio for Ice cream and Pastries

High-quality Afghan green pistachio kernels, although small, have excellent color and they are perfect to use in Ice cream and pastries.

The bulk supply of this product in Iran is usually through wholesale markets and its products in Mashhad.
Afghan pistachio kernels are also known as mountain or Herati. It is known by this name because this type of pistachio is harvested from trees in the mountains and heights of Herat.

In some parts of Sarakhs region in Iran, this type of pistachio is also present, but its volume is low and companies need a license to harvest them.
For this reason, some companies import the in-shell pistachios from Afghanistan to Iran and crack them with automatic devices. Also, there are other subsequent processes to perform on it.

Due to the small size of Afghan pistachios, the percentage of the shell between the kernels is very high and the need for sorting and cleansing is felt.

Until a few years ago, due to economic conditions and the exchange rate of  USD to IRR, this type of kernel was in use for various markets inside Iran. Lokum, Nougat, Sohan, baklava production units, and cakes and pastries were the main buyers and consumption of this product.

But due to the increase in the price of Afghan green pistachio kernels in the domestic market of Iran, many of these producers went for cheaper pistachio kernels. But few manufacturers still use this product.

Currently, the Afghan pistachios export market is increasing more than domestic sales.
This product has many buyers in countries such as Turkey, Ukraine, Iraq and some other Arab countries. They are looking to buy this product because of its wonderful green color and good taste.

Afghan pistachios are most in use as a raw material for ice cream, cakes, and pastries because they are small in size and less in use for nuts.
