Afghan pistachio kernels, also known as Herat or wild pistachio kernels, are very green.
This product is often a raw material for sweets.

Afghan pistachios grow spontaneously in the mountainous areas of western Afghanistan.
Some of the forests of this pistachio exist in the northeastern regions of Iran, especially Sarakhs.

But in Iran, the harvest of these products requires a license from natural resources organizations.

Afghan Pistachio Kernels Varieties

Wild pistachios in the highlands of Iran and Afghanistan belong to the same family.
They are quite similar in terms of quality and appearance.

There are two different varieties of Afghan pistachio kernels but the point is that they are the product of the same tree. In fact, the harvest time difference causes these two varieties of wild pistachio kernels.

If pistachios are harvested early, it is called “Kaul” or green.
In this method, pistachio kernels are greener and have less red flowers and skin.

But if pistachios are harvested later from the trees, it is called ripe or purple skin pistachios.
The pistachio kernel of this pistachio is redder on the skin and its inside green color will be less.

In general, Afghan pistachio kernels are available in the market in two commercial names as follows:

  • Purple Skin Afghan Pistachio Kernels
  • Milky Skin Afghan Pistachio Kernels

Both have a very good taste and are great for use in sweets.

Iran has the same quality as these wild pistachio kernels. But since most of the forests are in Afghanistan, this product is known as Afghan pistachio in the market.

This type of pistachio is much smaller than regular products.
Therefore, it is not that easy to crack and produce kernels with ordinary devices because the percentage of waste increases.
In this regard, a few companies are active in the field of forest/wild pistachio cracking in Iran.

Many Afghan traders also bring their products to Iran to crack and produce kernels.

Since Afghan pistachio is small in size, there is a high percentage of hard pistachio skin among pistachio kernels at the time of cracking. This issue must be completely addressed because there is a possibility of harm to the consumer.
For this purpose, the Artin company places all products on a test conveyor and checks them by human forces.

Of course, these can not be completely eliminated because there is human error.
But in this company, it tries to keep the percentage of waste less than 1%.

How to Get the Pistachios Price?

In general, pistachio’s price in Iran is dependent on the exchange rate of the USD to IRR due to their export orientation.
This causes sharp price fluctuations at some point in time.

On the other hand, the amount of production and harvest of forest pistachios is directly dependent on the amount of rainfall and weather conditions.
In some years, due to lack of rainfall and reduction in supply, prices increase sharply.
After these, it is the quality parameters that determine the price of the product.

The most important of which are as below:

  • Pistachio kernel type (Purple or Milky Skin)
  • Percentage of foreign matter
  • Package type
  • Small or large size
