Tuscan Pistachios

Pistachio cultivation in Italy is mainly concentrated in Sicily with about 3832 hectares on a total area of 3841 hectares. More than 90% of pistachio production is derived from a single cultivar, the Napoletana, also known as Bianca. Thanks to ETRURIO, Tuscany is now the third Italian region for Pistachio’s groves with the highest number of varieties cultivated.
