Pesky wasps could cause issue's for our crop- but our awesome farmers have a trick up their sleave!
Whilst insects are great for the Orchards assisting pollination, they’re also the biggest hinderance! It might come as a shock that the threat from insects starts very early in the crop cycle, in fact just weeks after pollination has happened and the pistachios are developing. The biggest threat comes from a type of pesky wasp and can cause major problems for the pistachios. Without good management the wasp can reduce production up to a staggering 90% each year. Our farmers have been growing pistachios for many many years and understand this threat and control infestation through their amazing sustainability program.
Pollination, It takes One Male and a Whole lot of Females!

This pea and pistachio pesto pasta is a winner and has become one of our family favourites. The pasta sauce cooks in about the same time it takes to cook some dried pasta in boiling water- can I say anymore?!
Why pistachio nut butter?
