New Mexico Pistachios
Our New Mexico pistachios will make you wonder where they’ve been all your life. Lightly roasted and salted to bring out their sweet delicious flavor, they are insanely addictive. You’ve been warned.Find the truck!
Pistachio trees grow best in desert-like climates such as Alamogordo, New Mexico where our pistachios are grown. These desert-dwelling trees don’t produce quality pistachios for the first 20 years of their life and have been known to live for hundreds of years in the sandy, loam soil.
Our partner Heart of the Desert farm in Alamogordo, New Mexico has been producing award winning pistachios since 1974. Heart of the Desert pistachios are grown, harvested, processed and packaged right at the farm – guaranteeing the freshness of pistachios that are second-to-none.
Pistachio trees bud in late March and it takes many months for the pistachios to develop. Although pistachios grow nicely in the heat, in the New Mexico winter the trees get their needed rest. When the pistachios are ready to be harvested, the nuts will have turned bright, hot pink!
means perfect fruit.
All our fruit and nuts are “tree ripened” allowing it to stay on the tree longer giving it richer, more complex flavor. Most grocery store fruit is picked too early and stored for weeks or even months. Our fruit is picked and delivered directly to you within days of harvest – you’ll taste the difference.
Pistachios you get in the grocery store can be years old from when they were harvested, leaving them brown and dried out. Fresh pistachios should have beautiful and vibrant avocado green color.
We only deliver fresh New Mexico pistachios to you directly from our partner Heart of the Desert farm.
Our New Mexico pistachios are available almost all year. Pistachios keep their freshness for several weeks which makes them a great option to have on hand for snacking or your favorite baking project.
From October to March we deliver fresh New Mexico pistachios directly to our customers homes. And every summer between June and August you can find our fresh New Mexico pistachios at our Peach Stops.
