the great pistachio
Green Gold of Etna
Long lasting and resistant. It's able to grow on vulcanic and steep land. The green pistachio is the symbol of Bronte and its territory: the Etna slopes, which are a great source of richness, are its ideal habitat. The pistachio is called "green gold", not only for its emerald green colour but also for its organoleptic characteristics, derived from a unique microclimate, which make it a high quality fruit, excellent in size and flavour compared to pistachios from Greece, Middle East, California or Argentina.
The secret of a unique taste
The harvest which occurs every two years makes the Pistachio of Bronte PDO a unique fruit: only in this way the plant has the time to absorb all those nutrients from the lava soil on which it grows that also grant it its aroma, its unmatched scent and taste. All these qualities allow us to turn it in our sweet delicacies.
