Peeled Pistachios | Artin Green Pistachio Kernels

Iran is the main producer of green peeled pistachios in the world market. Artin Company in Iran is an exporter of Iranian green pistachio kernels.

Peeled pistachios have been in demand in many international markets due to their wonderful color.
In recent years, we have witnessed a large volume of sales of this product.

Green pistachio kernels, known as skinless or peeled kernels, are into seven different grades.
The most prominent feature of this product, which increases the purchase of European markets, is its greenness.

What are the Peeled Pistachios?

 Peeled Pistachios

Pistachios that are harvested early from the orchards are called “KUL” pistachios. They are completely unripe and immature.
These pistachios are completely closed-mouth and the pistachio kernel is not yet fully ripe.

the early harvest has several good features, the most important of which are:

  1. No fungi and pests enter the pistachio
  2. Pistachio kernels are greener
  3. Uniformity of the green color

But perhaps one of the disadvantages is the small size of the pistachio kernel.

After cracking this type of pistachio, its kernel can be ready for the market without any special processing.
In this case, the name of this product will be green pistachios (or it’s better to say green pistachio kernels).

But if the thin skin is also taken on the pistachio kernel, another type of pistachio kernel will be produced.
These types of pistachios are peeled pistachios (or it’s better to say “green peeled pistachio kernels” (or also GPPK)).

Due to the long process of this product, its price is more expensive than other varieties.
The peeled green pistachios divide into several whole-shape grades and several halve-shape or granule grades.
The greenest grade is “A” or in some companies, it is called “S” (Super Green).
After that, as the pistachio kernel turns yellow, we go to lower grades.

There are usually two grades for halved-shape or granule of these peeled pistachios.

The green granulated and halved pistachio kernels and the yellow granulated and halved pistachio kernels, which have their own customers in the market.
