Mediterranean stone pine
We selected the Mediterranean stone pine (Pinus pinea) for our orchards because it is the most sought after pine nut in the culinary world. It is a beautiful tree, tough and resilient to dry and sunny climates, and very adaptable to cultivation. Stone pine has a long and sustained history of usage throughout Europe over thousands of years. This tree is also sometimes known as the umbrella pine because of its broad convex crown.
Healthy and Nutritious
Pinoli pine nuts are a healthy and nutritious natural whole food. They contain the highest protein count of all nuts (34% by weight). They have an elegant shape, a delicate texture and distinctive taste. The only chemicals used in producing Pinoli pine nuts are for grass control at time of planting. After that our orchards are free of herbicides, insecticides and fungicides, and our factory uses only pure filtered water and heat. We take great pride in bringing this natural and ancient food product to market from new and sustainable orchards.
