Bronte Pistachio Slow Food Presidia

This pistachio variety grows only in the hilly land around Bronte, and only here does it acquire a bright emerald-green color and an intense fragrance, resinous and rich. The trees are not fertilized or irrigated and are only pruned a couple of times during unproductive years. Pistachio trees alternative productive years with years of rest, and during the latter the farmers trim off the few buds that sprout on the branches so that the tree can store its energy for the next season. Harvesting takes place between the end of August and early September, and during this period everyone helps out in the “loci”, the local name for the pistachio groves, including children and the elderly.

Production area
Bronte Municipality, Catania Province

Presidium supported by
Sicilian Region’s Agriculture and Forestry Department



The pistachio is harvested in September every second year (production is very low for one year following harvest) and the shelled nuts can be found year-round.
