“Antep pistachios”, also known as “Antep green pistachios” refer to a specific type of pistachio (Pistacia Vera) that is grown in the Gaziantep province of south-eastern Turkey, particularly around the city of Gaziantep. These pistachios are renowned for their unique flavour, vibrant green colour, and high quality. The name “Antep” refers to the city of Gaziantep itself. One of the most distinctive features of Antep pistachios is their bright green colour, which sets them apart from other types of pistachios. They are known for their rich, nutty, and slightly sweet flavour. They have a balanced taste profile that includes both savoury and sweet notes. Antep pistachios are relatively small in size compared to some other varieties of pistachios. They are typically smaller and more elongated than the larger California pistachios, for example. These pistachios have a slightly firmer texture, making them satisfyingly crunchy when you bite into them. This texture enhances the overall eating experience. They are a good source of protein, fibre, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. Due to their exceptional quality and unique flavour, Antep pistachios are exported to various countries and enjoyed by people all over the world. They are often sought after by gourmet chefs and food enthusiasts who appreciate their premium quality.
