It is known that nuts are one of the cornerstones of Greek gastronomic heritage. For example, the Greeks are well- known for pistachios. In that country, pistachios have a dark green color and a very pleasant, special taste, so we recommend that you try them. The microclimate of Greece, which is characterized by warm summers and mild winters with a low levels of precipitation, provides ideal conditions for growing pistachios. In addition to the weather conditions, the composition of the soil also contributes to the special, recognizable aroma of this green snack, and they rank among the best in the world.
When it comes to almonds, the ancient Romans even called them “Greek nuts”, which is enough to intrigue you to try and see why almonds from Greece are so exceptional. The Greeks first cultivated almond trees 3,000 years ago and spread that knowledge throughout the Mediterranean. Like pistachios, almonds are great for making Greek baklava. It’s simple – use Greek fruits in Greek pies if you want to feel the taste you loved while in Greece.
