Does Khorasan produce the same pistachio as Kerman and Rafsanjan in Iran? Which company is producing pistachio nuts in Khorasan? Is it better to buy Rafsanjan or Sabzevar pistachios? These are all questions that we will answer in following.

In recent years, the volume of pistachio’s production in and around Sabzevar has increased significantly.
You should remember, however, that the Kalleghouchi (Jumbo) pistachio is more ancient in Rafsanjan. However, given the excellent transplantation of Rafsanjan trees in Khorasan province, the production volume and quality of this area is not lower than in Rafsanjan and Kerman.
In particular, the recent droughts have become a serious problem for farmers producing pistachio nuts in Rafsanjan.

Kaleh Ghuchi (Jumbo type) pistachio tree is highly dependent on soil, water and climate conditions, so the quality of the final product (taste and coarseness) is getting higher and higher in Khorasan each year.

Artin Factory is one of the well-known companies and factories known as jumbo pistachio producer, supplier and exporter.

Iran Jumbo Pistachios

The main areas that produce jumbo pistachio nuts throughout Iran include:

  • North of Khorasan province (Sabzevar, Neyshabour and Esfarain cities)
  • Rafsanjan city and especially Nough region in this city
  • Little areas in Sirjan
  • A few pistachio orchards in the Yazd province as well

Of course, Kerman province used to have higher production of “Kalleghoochi” pistachio varieties, but in recent years, drought has made Ahmad Aghaie’s trees yields outstrip Kalleghoochi.
Therefore, many of the farmers in this region have started to change their trees so that Khorasan province is currently the largest production center of Iranian jumbo pistachio cultivar.

In addition to Lebanon, the UAE and Qatar are other buyers in the Arab market.

Germany is also another buyer of Jumbo Pistachio Nuts and Kernels in the export market.

  5. The volume and quantity of purchases that certainly increases the power of price reductions per purchase.
