The Aegina pistachio nut – PDO (Protected Designation of Origin), known in Greece as the Aegina Fistiki, has been cultivated on the island of Aegina since the middle of the eighteenth century. It is naturally grown by small scale farmers and provides the island’s population with its main source of income apart from tourism.
The unique taste, shapely form, and full kernel of the Aegina Fistiki are due to the warm climatic conditions, the texture of the soil, the fact that the trees are not irrigated, as well as the proximity to the sea. Recognizing these characteristics, the European Union awarded the Aegina Fistiki the accolade POP (Protected Origin Product – EC Dir. 1263/96), distinguishing it from all the other pistachios world-wide.
