ARO Pistachios consists of our business offices and our production facility situated on a 40-acre parcel of land which also includes orchards of our pistachio trees. The Omadi and Arya pistachio trees from our office views are already showing budding on the male trees and leaves on the females. This green is as vibrant as the pistachio nuts themselves. We took some pictures of both male and female pistachio trees. We strongly support equal opportunity of the sexes! :) Green leaves on a 25-year old ARO Pistachios also grows Kerman and Kalegoochi varieties of pistachios. Kerman pistachios will be at this development phase between two to three weeks later than the other varieties. Green showing on 25-year-old mature pistachio trees. Our smallest orchard...
Arya, Kalegoochi and Kerman are the three varieties of pistachios grown in our orchards at Orandi Ranch. A pistachio type is called long if the ratio of the length to the greatest diameter is more than 1.5; otherwise, it is called round. Here is a brief description of our three pistachio varieties: (1) Arya, (2) Kalegoochi, and (3) Kerman. In antiquity pistachios were of the long variety until approximately 70 years ago when the round-shaped pistachio was developed. Orandi pistachios grow amongst Arya pistachio trees. Orandi is the Iranian or Persian variety of round pistachio nut noted for having an appearance like a hazelnut. This photograph shows the primary female Orandi variety of pistachio trees in early spring, poised for development...
