First, we will briefly mention how to produce this best-selling product in global markets.
To produce this product, pistachios harvest from the tree earlier than the specified time (When they are still unripe and immature). This type of pistachio is called KALAK in Persian.

KALAK pistachio has a completely green pistachio kernel.
But to produce green peeled pistachio kernels, in addition to the hard skin of the pistachio, the thin skin on the pistachio kernels must also be removed.

That is why this type of pistachio kernel also calls a double-skinned green pistachio kernel.

To separate the thin skin on the pistachio kernel, it is necessary to put this product in boiling water and separate the skin from the pistachio kernel by processes.

After that, the moisture of the product must return to its standard and normal level to continue the production process of the product.
At this stage, the peeled pistachio kernels should separate according to the degree of greenness.
This does both manually and with the use of laser sorting devices (Color Sorting) with high accuracy and more speed.

Producers of this type of pistachio kernels in Iran are less than the number of fingers on both hands.
These products are often classifying into 6 or 7 grades and are available in global markets.
