In addition to Iran, wild pistachio is also available in Afghanistan.

Then, inside Iran, they crack and produce pistachio kernels.
This work has been able to satisfy domestic customers in the Iranian market.

Wild pistachio kernels are very popular because of their green color and wonderful taste.

Most of the products of Iranian companies in this field are in use for export to different countries.
