Mechanical-Open Pistachio

Pistachios that are open (smiling) after harvest from the tree call natural open pistachios.
Natural open pistachios (also called NO for short), have a higher price than mechanical-open pistachios in Russia and other countries.

Among the pistachios harvesting from pistachio orchards, some pistachio nuts are Close-mouth.
When processing orchard’s products, Natural-Open pistachios get separate from Close-Mouth pistachios.

Close-mouth pistachios are using for two purposes:

  1. The first is to crack it and produce pistachio kernels
  2. Also, the second is to produce mechanical-open pistachio nuts

There is a method that uses cold water and shocks close-mouth pistachios so that pistachio mouth cracks.
Then, by placing the product under the sunlight or using a dryer, the mouth of the whole pistachio gets open.
With this method, close-mouth pistachios turn into open-mouth pistachios.

Mechanical-Open pistachios in international markets are known by the acronym MO. Which stands for Mechanical Open.

In these countries, low-price pistachios have a much higher sales volume.

Inexpensive pistachios are often shipping to these countries in two quality classes:

  • Class C
  • Class B

The “Class C” pistachios, which are the same as MO pistachios, which are exporting raw or roasted.
But Class B pistachios are a combination of MO and NO pistachios.

Many customers demand a combination of these products to acheive their target prices and qualities.
For example, some Russian customers register orders for 30% NO and 70% MO pistachios.
With this method, the quality of pistachio slightly increases and its taste is better when using by the consumer.

In other words, class B pistachio products are more customer-friendly and have a better sales market.
Therefore, when buying and exporting these pistachio nuts, we must carefully examine the needs of the market and customers.

For this reason, certain markets, such as Russia, are good buyers for these products.

Unfortunately, the price of pistachios in Iran is closely dependent on the exchange rate of the currencies.
