Emerald pistachios from Sicily are known worldwide for their quality. To maintain the quality the farmers harvest pistachio by hand and only in odd years. The fine taste is also due to the mineral salts in the hard volcanic soil at the foot of Mount Etna. If the nuts begin to mature, usually at the end of August, families gather from all over Italy in Sicily for the harvest. It is a great joy to attend this gathering in the groves of the ‘Samperi’ family. The pistachio harvest in Sicily accounts for only one percent of the world supply. And yet ” the green gold ” by pastry chefs and chefs from all over the world rated as the best.
