Pistachio cracking costs are high in Afghanistan. For this reason, most pistachios are imported to Iran from Afghanistan.
In Iran, a limited number of companies crack pistachios and after performing all the processes, they sell or export this product (Wild Pistachio Kernels).

In this regard, the largest producers of Afghan pistachio kernels are in the Khorasan province of Iran.
Of course, pistachio kernels are also sent directly from the Afghan market to the Iranian market and its sales volume is high.

As mentioned, mountain pistachio is very small and a high percentage of pistachio skin remains in the kernel when you crack them.
For this reason, producers should remove and sort these skins and foreign materials from the load by different methods.
Initially, they remove some of the skins by means of the wind.
However, it is necessary to perform the cleaning operation manually or using laser sorting devices. Because, if these hard skins are in the middle of the products, it may harm the end consumer.

In this regard, the production process of forest pistachio kernels is longer than other types of pistachio kernels.

You must control and consider various criteria to determine the price of pistachio kernels.
The first and most important is the type and variety of the kernels. There are two main varieties for these pistachio kernels:

  1. Milky Skin Pistachio Kernels
  2. Purple Skin Pistachio Kernels

Milky skin pistachio kernels have a greener mantle. In fact, the inside of this variety is more green. Therefore, this variety is really more interesting for the pastry and sweet producers.

By the way, Purple skin pistachio kernels are cheaper and both have their own customers in the market.
Forest pistachio kernels are available in 20, 30, or 50 kg sacks and 10 kg cartons.
These 10 kg cartons can also be vacuumed, which increases the shelf life of the product and causes less damage to the pistachio kernel during transportation.

Other characteristics of the pistachio kernel that are effective in determining its price include the following.

  • Variety (Milky Skin or Purple Skin)
  • The amount and percentage of foreign matter (including skin)
  • Uniformity of shape, variety, and size
  • Freshness and good taste
  • Packaging

All these factors, along with the supply and demand in the market, determine the price of pistachio kernels.
