Important Update on November 5th 2013
To all our customers and visitors we like to inform you of unfortunate and unpleasant information regarding American Nevada Pine Nuts and New Mexico Hard Shell Piñon Nuts. Due to severe climate changes in the mountains of the western and southwestern states, plagues are coming into our forest very early in the spring. This is something we never saw 20 or more years ago. These plagues are destroying our wonderful products of Nevada pine nuts and New Mexico piñon.

With these occurrences happening so consecutively in the past years we can see that this industry of harvesting commercial pinyon pine seed from our forests and making them available to consumers all over the southwest and western states, as we have for decades in our family business, we can sadly say that at this rate it is a dying business and a dead one in the near future. As we all know that the high costs of energy, labor, packing supplies, private and public permits and the consumer unwilling to pay the higher price due to the fact of all these factors and the harvest being so sparingly now a days, it seems to be that the days are numbered for this industry. If everyone only understood the great nutritional value and benefits that come from these pine seeds from high protein content and essential oils that one can receive from a small serving of theses seeds in comparison to other foods, one would gladly pay the higher price.

We are doing our best to keep the prices as reasonable as possible, but please understand that all the factors stated above is all based on mathematical numbers that need to add up. By no means are we getting rich doing what we are doing. So if you all want to see this industry continue, you should take everything into consideration and continue to support American pine nut businesses. To Top

Elevation and Pinecone Production
Pollination and Seed Development (18 months)

The pinyon pine nut (seed) will begin its development in early spring. It begins when the tree grows stems of pollen an average of six inches in length (light brown powder in appearance) which in time is carried away by the wind or by other means, so called pollination. From the time of pollination through to the end of summer a tiny cone about the size of a marble will develop. This pre-mature cone will either remain dormant (a sleep) until the spring or shrivel up and wither a way due to the harshness of its environment.

When spring begins, once again, the surviving cone will recommence its growth to maturity as far as it’s environment permits. The cone will develop much rapidly than the year prior and by mid-summer (June) will show signs of seed development. If nature is favorable the cone will be spared from being dried up by the suns rays (on the hotter summers or days) and by mid-August near its completion to maturity.

Depending on the environmental conditions of that year the cone could reach maturity as early as the ending of August or Mid-September. Upon reaching its maturity and with the suns help (and heat), the cone will begin to open and become dryer as the seeds inside ripen. Taking into consideration the conditions the seed may already be fully developed and ripened (edible) before the cone is completely open. Therefore, with the environment at favorable conditions, a pine nut (seed) will be formed and reach its fully developed and mature phase in a matter of 18 months. To Top

Wikipedia Pine Nut Facts (extra information on pine nuts)

In ecology, in regards to that of the pinyon pine tree, the elevation of the tree is an important determinant as to the quantity of pinecone production, and therefore, on the large part, will determine the amount of pine nuts the tree will yield.

Pinyon pine tree cone production is most commonly found at an elevation between 6,000 to 8,500 feet and ideally at 7,000 feet. At elevations lower or higher environmental conditions make it difficult for the tree to provide for the nourishment of the cones. Therefore in lack of that nourishment (in the most part water) the cones are more susceptible to being damaged and thus the tree will tend to abort the cone(s) in order to preserve its own health and await the following season to attempt another production of buds (or tiny cones), to than await 18 months for full cone maturity.

Brief History of Pine Nuts and Mormon Pioneers

When our ancestors, the mormon pioneers, came into the Utah valley's they became acquainted for the first time with the Nevada and Utah pine nuts / piñon. As the local natives, Shoshones, Paiute's (Piute's), Goshutes relied on these small seeds, we call pine nuts, for there food source for many generations they began to trade for other goods with the mormon colonizers. Therefore, as of today a large percentage of the descendants of those pioneers and others in the Utah Valley's look forward to the fall of every year to begin there personal and traditional harvest of pine nuts in different mountain ranges of Utah, Nevada, California. Many also look forward to simply ordering them online or going to the local markets to purchase them. As we arrive with them every year we are told by our customers how much they love the all natural taste and scent that this treat brings to there homes. A great number of the residents of Utah, Nevada, Idaho, Wyoming and California will have a difficult time celebrating their fall and winter holidays without this very traditional food (pine nut).

We at WholeSale PineNuts.com are proud to be able to say that we have been personally involved in harvesting and marketing these pine nuts for 6 decades now and counting, bringing them to many thousands of happy consumers throughout the years.

We look forward to indeed providing them Organic and All Natural with no ingredients of any kind, directly to you. Once our pine nuts are tasted by new customers, we are constantly being complemented how the flavor is remarkable beyond anything they ever tasted in pine nuts and we are asked how we ever managed to bring this about? Unfortunately we cannot give you our trade secrets at this time. To Top

 

The Mature Pine Nut / Fruit and Harvesting Process

The mature pinyon pine cone and containing pine nuts is ready to harvest ten days before the green cone begins to open. One can harvest a cone by placing it in a burlap bag and expose it to a heat source such as the sun to begin the drying process. It takes approximately 20 days from that time until the cone fully opens. Once it is fully open and dry the fruit (seed) or pine nut can be easily extracted in various ways. The most common and practical extracting method used for the pinenut is to repeatedly hit the cone(s) in the burlap bag against a rough surface in order to cause it to shatter leaving just the job of separating by hand the pinenuts from the residue within the bag.

Another option for harvesting is to wait until the cone opens on the tree (as it naturally will) and harvest the cone from the pinyon pine, followed by the extracting process mentioned above.

On a further note one can simply gather and collect any fallen seed or pine nuts off the floor of the tree.


Additional Pine Nut retype below (unique)

The pinyon pinecone is fully mature and ready to harvest ten days before it begins to open up, this is also around the same time the Pinon Nut is ready as well. This occurs approximately between the 10th and 15th of September of each year. You have the option to harvest the cone while it is still closed and green and than place it on/in the burlap sack to begin the drying process to allow easy extraction of the pinenuts. The drying process takes approximately 20 days. Than you can shake the cone around inside the burlap sack or hit the bag against a tough surface allowing the nut to be released from the cone. By this you separate the fruit from the cone.

You also have the option to wait for the pinyon pinecone to open fully on the tree and gather the pinyon pine cone in a bag. The most practical way is to climb on an aluminum extended ladder by placing it against the pinyon pine tree, climbing to gather the fruit. After gathering about half a burlap bag full you can repeatedly hit the bag against a tough surface which will release the fruit and pine nut from the cone separating the residue from the pinenut.

Our American Pine Nut Story.

Back in the 1950’s you would find thousands of American citizens whether they be native Americans or others gathering and harvesting the Nevada jumbo soft shell pine nuts by the thousands of pounds for their personal use or to sell them to the different markets in the states of Nevada, Utah, California, Oregon, Idaho, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, Montana, and Texas. They sometimes just simply traded their pine nuts harvested for other goods in the local flee markets or in super markets. They enjoyed their community get a ways going on there camp-outs with their children and friends into the wilderness.

As time passed less and less of this practice by American citizens continued. Through the years as of today only a very few number of American citizens continue this practice. Most people are just to busy with their daily lives to be able to get away and harvest their pine nuts. Most of the older generations that use to love to go and gather their personal pinyon pine nuts have become to old to drive the distance into the wilderness of Nevada’s mountain ranges and camp out and do the gathering of pine nuts that they enjoyed very much at a younger age. We receive many emails from older folks that back in the 30’s, 40, 50’s, 60’s, etc. would go with their parents and friends to camp-out and enjoy their hunting or fishing and simply their get away to the woods and they would harvest their personal pinion pine nuts. Now in our day’s most US Citizens don’t take the time or simply don’t have the time to go and do in the woods what they did many years ago.

In our commercial harvesting business every year we encounter fewer and less personal harvesters of pine nuts as we did in prior years. We have always enjoyed meeting all these people in the woods and would like to hear all their pine nut harvesting, hunting, fishing, and camping experiences. They always try to teach us how to become more efficient in our commercial harvesting operation. For our pine nut gathering business it have been enjoyable through out the decades to meet and become acquainted with so many good folks and most of all to learn that they all love the pinyon pine forests and pinion pine nuts as much as we do.

Throughout the many decades of our involvement in the pine nut commercial business we have struggled and suffered to learn first hand how to bring about and to life a productive and profitable small family business. By this we look forward to bring to you American organic grown pine nuts at a bulk price or wholesale prices direct to you without any middle man between producer, harvester and consumers.

We always look at the woods as our home when we do our commercial harvest. We do all possible to prevent damage to trees in any way. We do not use any mechanical machinery of any kind to harvest the pinyon pine nuts. All the pine cones are harvested by hand one at the time. When we remove the pine nut from the cone we do use machinery for this operation and when we sort the good pine nuts form the bad ones we use mechanical machines for it. This cleaning process does not interfere with the pine tree in anyway. When looking at the woods as our home it is always in our best interest to leave things as we found them. How do we do this? Simple! We avoid cutting pine trees or breaking branches to gather the pinyon pine cones, and we gather all our garbage and remove it from the woods to the local county dumps and leave behind a clean forest for all visitors to enjoy when they stop by to visit. We rely on a healthy pinyon pine forest to bring forth a healthy pinyon pine cone that yields pinyon pine cone seed that is the pinon pine nut. Indeed this is a very precious food source for all to enjoy, the pine nut.

It brings sorrow to our family and friends when we see a good productive forest that has in the past years yielded a good bumper crop of pinyon pine cones that bring forth the seed of pine nuts that has been mowed down for life stock grassing or has been used for green wood cutting areas in the most inhuman ways to treat our precious natural resources in such a manner and also when that land is used for control burnings or experimental burnings by some universities or government agencies. We have known of this to happen in some areas that we have harvested from before.

I would like to say to all university or government agencies to stop this inhuman madness of control burnings or experimental burnings in our public lands. Commercial pine nut harvesting has never been a multi-million dollar industry like many other industries. We do not have the resources or the political pull to lobby in the US congress and our elected officials in order for them to consider better caring and protecting the pinyon pine nut forests or pinion nut forests, which is the best interest of the American people as a whole.

The product called pine nut that takes 18 months to complete its cycle from day of pollination to maturity is indeed a great nutritious and healthy food source and it is in the best interest of all Americans to keep an eye out for the pinyon pine nut forests.

The product called pine nut is very delicious and nutritious with a very unique and distinct flavor, you can enjoy them as fresh raw nuts or as freshly roasted nuts in shell or shelled pine nuts. This seed is great for a snack or food source for all of us to enjoy. One can have a great days meal by just simply eating plain pine nuts in a day time, and you’ll have a lot of energy. We don’t recommend for anybody to try this, but we can say that plenty people that we know of have done it with no side affects and no loss of energy of any kind. If you decide to get some pine nuts today we believe you will be pleased with the pine nuts and there great fresh taste whether they are fresh raw nuts, freshly roasted nuts or freshly shelled pine nuts. Remember buying bulk nuts always saves you money so call your closest pine nut lover and order together and save many penny’s and dollars. To Top

The Pignoli Nut or Pignolia Nut:

Pignoli are essential in many culinary recipes throughout the world. This commodity is most especially used in Italian delicious cuisine for their combinations of flavor that bring the most wonderful essence of smell and a very delightful taste to many recipes that include the exceptional stone pine seed which is known in the Italian language as the “pignoli nut”. Many say that Mexican cuisine is the best in all around the world we live in. I say “Viva Italia” cuisine forever and ever, as to me it is the best food, the world over. Especially all there pignoli cuisine, it is like none other on earth.

Unlike others cultures, the Italians have been using pignoli in there culinary practices for millennia’s, not just for century’s. Going back, before the Roman Empire, they were cooking the best culinary recipes of the day with pignolia. To try and match the pignoli cuisine of the Italians, with all there culinary experience, it is not rare for one to say "None other comes close".

Organic Constitute:
The number one thing in the constitution of organic farming or ranching is no secret whatsoever for those of us that have been around organic farming and organic ranching and have lived most of our lives on farms ranches and or wilderness. Being one with a natural organic environment for many decades of our lives and always looking to find a way to avoid chemical fertilizers, fungicides, pesticides and growth hormones and many other kinds of none natural science from the world that we live in today is what we like to do in all our farming and ranching ventures. For pine nuts being a part of our food supply, being one with nature is our number one priority in our lives.

We as a family always familiarize well in the woods and wilderness for these very reasons although we don’t have the comfort of a warm home; we camp in the woods for months at a time and cook over a camp fire and sleep in a cold tent at night. However, indeed it has been a way for many of us to know a different part of the all natural organic wilderness in our country that one in no way can find in the city life. It brings us close to mother earth in a way that only those that try it can fully know firsthand; the big difference it brings to your daily lives.

Going back to the all natural organic wilderness and environment in some of the most remote places that we look forward to harvesting all natural organic pine nuts that are pollinated and receive their nourishment 100% from Mother Nature in their maturing process. A cycle of 18 months to reach its completion and then yielding forth an all natural organic pinyon pine cone that brings forth a 100% all natural organic pine nut seed that we call all natural organic pine nuts. In this way it’s comforting to say that indeed it’s much bigger than organic farming and is beyond the common organic all together. Most of these remote areas that we look forward to gather from have American all natural organic pine nuts that can be wild harvested and never have been tampered with in anyway by a human being whatsoever. Making this a product of organic pine nuts that we can make available to you as pure and natural as nature intended them to be, as is our intention. There are very few organic products brought to you in this way from the world we live in today. Wouldn't it be great to bring about an all natural organic world again some day? As it was back many decades ago? I believe that we all would say “Yes!” We would all love an all natural organic world, always fresh air to breathe, all natural organic flowers that emit an aroma of a very pleasant smell, organic fruits of all kinds with the most pleasant aroma and flavor for all to enjoy, organic vegetable of all kinds with the most wonderful flavors, of course organic live stock and poultry of all kinds, and let’s not forget our all natural sea creatures. He who created all living things whether breathing creature or vegetation knows best than all our science in the world today, don’t you agree? If you don’t that’s ok, this world is big enough for all of us to live in a world of many likes and opinions, in peace hopefully. One of the true definitions of all natural organic is: Un-tampered with, or by anything that is un-natural to the nature of things. To Top

The pinyon pine tree or pinon pine tree:
The pinyon pine tree is native to the southwest and west mountain region of America in the USA, predominantly in the foothills. It grows in a elevation of 5,500 feet to 8,500 feet. Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas grows the dabble leaf pine needle and is called the pinon pine tree by the native people. Its sister tree grows in Nevada, Utah and California and has single leaf pine needles called the pinyon pine tree, which is the Nevada official State tree. Both varieties of pinyon pine trees are evergreen and very beautiful. Being very productive the single leaf pinyon pine tree yields a seed called the Nevada jumbo soft shell pine nuts and the dabble leaf pinon pine tree yields a seed call by the natives in New Mexico pinon nuts or simply just called pinon or pinones. Both seeds are edible as raw nuts and can be eaten as roasted or toasted nuts.

How to: Roast or toast organic pine nuts or organic pinion nuts
The simplest and most convenient way to roast your organic pine nuts is to place a frying pan over your stove or camp fire and add a desired amount of pine nuts. When they are raw pine nuts they have a different flavor as all raw nuts do. By roasting them it brings about a richer flavor to your raw pine nuts. For some folks this is the only way to consume their organic product of pine nuts. Bring your frying pan to heat and stir your organic raw pine nuts to prevent them from burning as you would popcorn or during other toasting procedures. Their done once the freshly roasted organic pine nuts begin to pop like popcorn. Now remove them quickly from the heat to avoid them from burning up. This is a simple pine nut recipe for all those that don’t like or care to have salt added to their roasted pine nuts, but if you’d like them to be salty add a very small amount of water to your pan only enough to moist your pine nuts, add the amount of salt to your liking and stir in your frying pan until they become dry and begin to pop. Then remove them from the heat and wait approximately 5 to 10 minutes for them to cool down before eating your freshly organic roasted pine nuts or freshly toasted pine nuts. What a simple roasting pine nut recipe this is.

If you haven’t tried it yet, remember to add some toasted pine nuts to your pinon coffee recipe and make your own pine nut coffee recipe. Always remember to buy all your bulk pine nuts or roasted bulk pine nuts at a bulk price or bulk wholesale price and you’ll save big. Enjoy your roasted pine nuts or toasted pinon nuts. To Top

How to:

Preserving and storing your fresh organic pine nuts or your fresh pinion nuts.
The simplest and most convenient way is to immediately place your supply of organic pine nuts or organic pinon nuts in a paper bag in a cool dry place keeping them from humidity to avoid mold; always keeping them in a well ventilated area. It would be best to not close your paper sack. Never place them in an air tight container unless they’re in a freezer, otherwise they will become rancid and eventually moldy. Always remember that organic pine nuts and organic pinon nuts are a perishable product. By keeping these simple steps you can preserve your organic raw pine nuts or organic Roasted pine nuts for a very long time allowing them to maintain close to a very fresh taste. When you place them in a freezer always put them in a sealed Ziploc bag or other type of sealed container. Avoid freezing and unfreezing the product as much as possible by sealing them in small quantity bags that contain only a day’s worth for consumption. This is a simple pine nut storing process to enjoy fresh raw pine nuts or freshly roasted pine nuts throughout the year. To Top


Pinyon pine tree growth:
The pinyon pine nut seed commences germination in spring under the snow packs in the wilderness when temperatures reach above 32 Fahrenheit, allowing the seed to stay humid and moist under the snow packs keeping it fresh and frozen under the snow packs through the winter. As the environment warms up the snow starts to melt gradually and the pine nuts seeds commences its germination growth turning it into a pinyon pine tree. Unfortunately, out of the millions of pine nut seeds a very small percentage will reach to become a mature pinyon pine tree. Due to the fact of the harshness of the environment; being exposed to severe hot weather in the summers, in some cases lack of rain where the immature pine tree does not have deep roots to sustain its self and perishes due to the lack of humidly. The wildlife feeds on the sprouting seeds of pine nuts from all kinds of wild birds and mammals that roam the woods leaving behind very few seeds in the end to continue it’s growth that eventually mature into a pinyon pine tree. Due to that fact that the pinyon pine tree relies 100% on Mother Nature for it’s nourishment of humidity for many decades its growth is slow and the favorable warm weather is minimal per cycle year . Once a pinyon pine tree reaches its time for pollination to develop a pinyon pine cone, which takes 18 months to reach its maturity to yield forth the seed of pine nuts that we humans love to consume, it is a very difficult cycle to complete due to the fact that’s the tree relies 100% on the environment for its nourishment. In this period lack of humidity, that nourishes the development of the pine cone, for whatever reason if nature does not provide the natural resources, the tree will abort its fruit. By the following spring the tree will once more intend to with a favorable environment and will begin its pollination and commence once again its 18 month cycle. By early summer you will notice a small marble size pine cone on the tips of the pine tree. The immature cone will grow about one quarter of an inch by the end of the summer and then will become dormant for 6 months until next spring. By having a favorable environment of humidity and temperatures the cones will commence once again quite rapidly in comparison to the previous year. By forcing a pine cone open in early summer you can see the seed’s development in the cones. By mid-summer the cone stops growing and the pine cone’s seed or the pine nut will continue to mature for about 3 more weeks. In most cases the pine nut seed will fully mature by the 10th day of September and will be ready to harvest; even though the pine cone is green and closed shut. By this date of any year someone can feel comfortable in harvesting the green pine cone and placing it in a burlap sack, exposing it to the sun for about 2 to 3 weeks in which the pine cone will gradually begin to open up and you’ll be able to see the pine nuts. I may state that the best way to harvest the pine cones that have the seed of pine nuts inside is by having an extension ladder of aluminum with a bag strapped around our shoulders, which we call picking bags. By using a heavy shirt like those of army type and industrial gloves to protect from the very sticky pine gum that the pine cone produces and the sharp pine needles that can cause severe soreness to your hands and arms. Throughout the years we have learned the easiest way to removes pine gum form your hands and your hair is by buying some mechanics hand cleaner by rubbing the hand cleaner on the pine gum removing it is quick and easily. Once you have harvested the pine cones and having them in your burlap bag exposed to the heat of the sun, the hardest part of the work is done. Once the pine cones are opened one can beat the sack a little by shaking it and hitting it against a rough surface, allowing the pine nuts to separate from the pine cones. Once the simple procedure is done, simply empty the sack into something of your choosing and separate the pine nuts from the pine cones.

There are two simple ways to separate the good pine nuts form the bad pine nuts. One that is practical and simple is by getting a container of water and pouring the pine nuts into the water, by many this is called floating the pine nuts. The pine cone residue and pine needles and hollow pine nuts will float; the good pine nuts that have fruit inside will sink to the bottom. You can remove the top waste and then collecting the good pine nuts from the bottom and exposing the pine nuts to the sun to dry them. This procedure of cleaning your pine nuts, which is called by many is called floating your pine nuts. This will not damage or hurt your product of pine nuts from there natural state in anyway as long as you will dry them completely and store them properly. Another simple and practical way of selecting your good seed of pine nuts from the bad pine nuts and residue of pine cone is by simple putting them in front of blower. The heavy pine nuts will drop straight down closer to the blower and the bad pine nuts and residue will fly farther away. Once your pine nuts are separated your may ask how may I store them properly to keep them fresh throughout the year. Another simple procedure that if followed your pine nuts will stay fresh, soft, and juicy throughout the year by simple placing them in a Ziploc bag or another container and placing them in the freezer. Whether your pine nuts are fresh raw, freshly shelled pine nuts or freshly roasted pine nuts they keep better and stay fresher if placed in and kept in your freezer at all times. There are many culinary uses for pine nuts recipes for many cultures and customs all the ones that I have tasted are extremely delicious we will place many pine nut recipes, pine nut nutritional information, pine nut nutritional value and pine nut health benefits on this web site for your personal benefit.

The native American people highly value the pine nut as a food supply for their fall and winter food source for many century’s. There is much tradition in personally harvesting the pine nuts and using them for there ceremonial gatherings that they had in their reservation communities and festivals. Some tribes that I am acquainted with every year that I harvest pine nuts from look forward of hearing from me. I can happily say that throughout the years I have donated many hundreds of pounds to some of these tribes for their personal uses. They’re very appreciated that I take the self initiative and have given them a gift of pine nuts for these purposes since much of their elderly people have a difficult time going to do their own personal harvest of pine nuts by all means you never find one native American in Nevada that doesn’t love to consume pine nuts.

Everyone keeps asking me “Where to buy nuts in bulk?” When I think about it I really become to realize that there are thousands of sources, but the true test is which one has the best nuts available in regards to taste and quality. When I go to look to buy nuts in bulk I sometimes can’t help but think that any source where the price is lowest will do. On the other hand I don’t want to buy a dried up, flavorless and malnourished nut. When I look for pine nuts I think to myself why buy nuts in bulk if I’m not saving so much money from buying just a few pounds. Let me now confuse you with such varied questions. I’m simply pointing out that when looking to buy nuts in bulk; you are looking for a significant amount in price difference and comparing quality as well. Please understand that quality nuts are always going to cost a reasonable amount more that the average price of the lower quality nuts. Here at our web site we give you the option to buy nuts in bulk at a great price, always offering top quality pine nuts with no low class nuts in our inventory. When buying these nuts in bulk you most often will be given the option to buy nuts in smaller quantities without the need to place a larger order.

When I was younger I remember buying pine nuts at my local markets and seeing that there was a standard market section and the bulk section of the store, I never would bother with the bulk area. However, as time went buy I became curious and went to that part of the store that said “Bulk Orders” and quickly came to realize the big difference in prices between the bulk nuts and the individual pound bags. I guess since I never really ate more than a certain amount of pine nuts in season during the week I never thought to think ahead and buy more pine nuts up front. Well, now since, my family and I have put our monies together to purchase 50, 100, or 200 pounds of bulk nuts. Doing so we save almost, if not up to 50%, which depending on the amount we buy turns into hundreds of dollars. Bulk nuts are found all over the internet and of course at most all grocery market or health food stores. Buying nuts in bulk will save you money and time. I mean think of it. All the time we spend driving and look or walking in the store to get our pine nuts. If we already had them bulk at home we would have one less thing on our checklist to get at the market or to order online. Imagine if we only ordered two or five pound of pine nuts and on the internet and paid for shipping and than 2 weeks later did the same thing. Imagine that! I mean we have customers that do that for the whole pine nut season. Some of them place ten separate orders and would pay for shipping. Besides the higher price per pound when purchasing smaller amount you may pay a repetitive amount for shipping which adds up to more money in the long run. Perhaps next time you’ll consider purchasing bulk nuts, either all for yourself or combined funs with the family and save a good amount of money. Imagine, you could use that saved money to watch or rent a movies to enjoy your bulk nuts with.

Throughout the many years we have discovered a vast amount of information to compile recipe pine nuts. With such information we can give our readers precise and specific details in which recipes for pine nuts they use. Several years ago a fellow asked me what recipe for pine nuts I used the most. Interestingly enough for the man I hadn’t had a quick enough response, which gave him doubt of my expertise. He soon left thinking I sold pine nuts but that I knew not what I was selling. Shortly after that experience I search the internet thoroughly for recipe pine nuts or pine nut recipes in which to my amazement found that pine nuts were such a commodity and used in so many various recipes one could lose track of all the variations and types of preparation pine nuts evolved around in the many different cultures. When people are searching for recipe pine nuts they don’t realize that they need to be more specific as to the type of recipe they want. For example; do you want chicken with pine nuts, basil and pesto sauce with pine nuts, or do you want tomato with beef and broccoli in your recipe for pine nuts. Since that day my disappointed customer left my stand I ponder now and then which recipe for pine nuts I prefer among the dozen I have sample and tasted. I’d now say that recipe pine nuts of my choice remain the chicken spaghetti with pesto basil sauce. When thinking next time about what to cook for your special guest look no further than a specific search on Google for your recipe pine nuts.

Alright, when was the last time you looked for recipes pine nuts online or in your cookbook? I would say that it use to be difficult to find a book that had much recipes for pine nuts and those really long books were almost impossible to browse with their small fine print and 100’s of pages of recipes. Now when I look at a book I rush to the index which now a day I feel specifies pine nuts and all the particular pages that have recipes for pine nuts. I notice that when browsing the web for information, many times using only specific information and not a full phrase will give more wanted results. Throughout the times of modern technology methods have been developed to browse vast amounts of information in a moment of time. “Recipes pine nuts” is just a short phrase of information that people search on a daily basis. My experience has taught me that in order to obtain the most relevant and basic detail about any specific topic is to think of a phrase that shortly and accurately identifies the purpose of the desired information.

Delicious toasted pine nuts are one thing that pine nut fans go crazy for. When I say crazy I really mean crazy. Telling someone who has never tried pine nuts that they’re crazy for the toasted pine nuts might sound more like an exaggeration, but it is not. The amazing flavor and juicy texture of this commodity is world renowned and treasured in many cultures throughout the entire globe. I get asked a lot about how I love to toast pine nuts. My quickest and one of my favorite was to toast them is on a skillet pan with a half a teaspoon of water for two cups of pine nuts on high for about ten minutes. Of course you mix them only when needed to prevent them from burning and sample them until they’re ready. I love toasted pine nuts! As a matter of fact I don’t know if I have ever tried a toasted pine nut that I didn’t like (as long as it wasn’t burned). I recall when I was a kid my father teaching me how to toast them. He did it the same way I just mentioned, but I always saw toasting pine nuts as an art. I thought it incredible how something so small could be so tasty. I was shocked when I learned that boiling pine nuts and then toasting them on the stove for a few more minutes was so easy and oh so good. Ever since I was a kid I have always loved toasted pine nuts. I eat them as a snack or toss them into my everyday dishes for a blast of flavor. They add this great texture and flavor to almost any meal. Try them in a ham sandwich, roasted or raw. In the end many people say that the toasted pine nuts are the best, although many others will say that the raw ones are. Either way, enjoy your pine nuts, whether you get them from WholeSale Pine Nuts .com or from another source. If you have never tried them roasted, perhaps your should keep it that way because there is a very high possibility that once you’ve tried toasted pine nuts you won’t want them any other way.

What are pine nuts? Great question! Pine nuts are one of the most popular commodity on the American and worldwide markets, when it comes to foods. Pine nuts in many cultures are literally a source of food and regarded as a blessing from God and to those who are natives, as a blessing from mother earth. My friends always ask me that same question, I mean, my friends who are not already pine nut addicts. Simply put, pine nuts are small seeds that come from pine cones that contain much nutritional value and in most every species or variety of pine nuts, a great taste. I love to entertain my customers or guests on the facts and health benefits of pine nuts. My wife would tell me that I have no other life than pine nuts, although she knows that’s not true at all. Pine nuts have been around from the very beginning and we hope they stay around forever. Thinking of a year without pine nuts saddens me more than it should. I guess, being raised on them, I have acquired a sense of craving in the seasons that pine nuts are normally available. Ever since we started offering or providing pine nuts in the out of season months we have received many comments by our customers about how they now feel like that can’t go even a month without them. Perhaps that explains a lot of the large orders in the last few weeks that we had them available to order online. Now going back to the main question about what are pine nuts, the question could only be accurately answered once it is more specified, since the question can be phrased in a wide amount of various ways. For example; “What are pine nuts to you?” and “What are pine nuts good for”?” or “What are pine nuts used for?” I’ve also heard people ask, “What are pine nuts used for in nature?” So now that you have a little idea of what I’m talking about, next time specify your question when asking or wanting to ask, “What are pine nuts?”

Yesterday I found these great pine nut recipes. Once I tried them and had the tasted I knew I’d never go without these recipes in my weekly meals again. It took only a few minutes to find these recipes and the taste so delicious, I wonder where in the world did this recipe come from, why haven’t I’ve ever tried it before.

I imagine as with every recipe, there was some person who began experimenting with pine nuts and tossing them in their favorite dishes and mixing them with other ingredients when they arrived at the recipes that are now used by people from all around the world. While talking to customers and friends I get asked about pine nut recipes all the time. Some people had no idea that pine nuts could be put in food. Some had no idea that pine nuts were even consumable by humans, the always thought that only animals ate them and that nature planted them just to look beautiful. Well if you didn’t know, now you do, pine nut recipes are available all over the internet, just search Google and you’ll find all the recipes your heart and mouth will delight in.

Toasting pine nuts is one of the best ways to release the great flavor that pine nuts have. Learning how there toasted and which ingredient to toast them with is very simple. For example, when toasting pine nuts I use just water and my favorite type of salt. Some people cannot eat salt, so all you do is skip the salting instructions. I begin by using a frying pan or my favorite cast iron skillet. I place that on the stove on high and put my pine nuts in the pan. I wait a few moments until I can see or feel the pan is nice and hot. Once the pan is nice and hot I will put one table spoon of water for every 2 cups of pine nuts. The water is used to allow the pine nuts to cook gently without burning. Many people use oil or butter to cook them, however that takes away from the great natural taste of the pine nuts. The water allows toasting pine nuts to maintain their amazing flavor and scent. The water also helps the nuts to attain a boil in order to fully cook it. As a matter of speaking, the more boiled you want your pine nuts to be (which makes them very tender), use more water. Some people will actual boil them in a pot of water for ten or so minutes and add salt to the water toward the end of the boiling and just eat them like that. They taste great that way. Others like to boil them and then toast them on the stove until all or most of the water evaporates off of the shells and eat them that way, which makes them nice and crunchy.

Now back to the basic instructions. If you’re a salt person than add your preferred amount of salt onto the pine nuts after adding the water, by doing so the salt will vaporize onto the pine nuts and by the time they are all cooked the water would of dried. One last thing to mention is that in order to get the pine nuts the best possible way, according to your liking is to sample them every once in a while until you get them the way you like them. Once you taste two or three pine nuts that are to your liking turn the stove off and move the pan onto a place where there is no heat exposure. If the pan is really hot and even smoking than you want to make sure that you continue to cool down the pan by mixing the pine nuts thoroughly and very often until you see that the pine nuts won’t burn or cook anymore. When toasting pine nuts you should remember that is takes only 8-10 minutes to cook them and that you should sample them often and even more often when they are near ready to avoid over cooking them. Simply take them off the stove once your done toasting the pine nuts. There you got it, toasting pine nuts is that simple, yet is well worth the short time and brings a flavor and aroma to your kitchen that you’re just going to not be able to wait much longer again before you cook them again.

Ever look online for recipes and come short of that perfect recipe. Many people online search Google for pesto without pine nuts. However, I’m here to ask, “Why wouldn’t you want pine nuts in pesto?” I mean, pine nuts make the best pesto. Excuse me, in my opinion they do. Pesto without pine nuts is like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich without the jelly or broccoli soup without broccoli. I know you probably think I’m exaggerating, but when someone mentions pesto sauce, it is very uncommon to not use pine nuts in pesto. Many people say that pesto is not a full word or is not complete without pine nuts. Alright, so of course pesto is a word and pine nuts can be added to it. But have you ever tried pine nuts with pesto and then tried eating pesto all by itself. Yeah, now you know what I’m saying. Pesto without pine nuts is the difference, in my opinion, between clam chowder with real clam muscle and artificial flavoring clam chunks in soup. Whenever my customers ask me about pesto, they already have the preconceived thought that pine nuts go in pesto recipes. As a matter of fact, I cannot recall at this moment a single customer asking me for a pesto recipe who didn’t intend or want to put there purchased pine nuts in with the recipe. Yeah, for sure you’ll find several pesto recipes, however, the number recommended and highest acclaimed addition to almost all pesto recipes are pine nuts. If you are not already a pesto and pine nut addict, or if you are a pesto fan reading this for the first time and have not tried pine nuts in your pesto recipe, don’t look away from this article when thinking of making pesto without pine nuts and give it a try. Yep, just through those pine nuts in there. I know you’ll enjoy your recipe, even more!

Thinking of pasta and pine nuts as a meal for my guest has been something I have done many times and just as many smiles times guest is what I have received. Pasta pine nuts have been an old family tradition ever since my family first began harvesting pine nuts over 50 years ago. The delicious flavor pine nuts add to almost any pasta recipe is comparison to those fans of chicken and beef pastas. Those who have grown up on pasta pine nuts may seem that they do not prefer to eat great pasta without pine nuts; to those people it is almost like making chicken lasagna pasta without chicken. Throughout the year of our family making this recipe we have come to consider that any pasta meal or dessert that has pine nuts will taste great 100% of the time. We see that pasta with pine nuts cooked to a soft texture will bring a creamiest taste. If you cook, roast or toast the pine nuts a little before putting them in the recipes and then placing the whole thing into the oven, this will give a crunchy taste and to many people, it will bring out more flavor of the pine nuts. Try pasta pine nuts in your next favorite pasta recipe. If for whatever reason you don’t like it and you’re a pasta fan, try them in another recipe or look up a pasta pine nuts recipe or pasta with pine nuts recipe online for a something great to impress your taste buds or even your friends and guests.

Are you looking forward to roasting your pine nuts? You know, roasting pine nuts is a tradition to many families around American, and to lots more all around the world. I have heard literally hundreds of people tell me about how they roast there pine nuts and about how they just can’t wait for them to finish the process so that they can fully enjoy their tempting flavor. I recall roasting pine nuts when I was a kid. My brothers, sisters, and I would fight over who got to roast the first batch. I was always so anxious to see them pop and then sample them. Wow, especially the first roasted batch of the fresh new season. Oh my, now that is just a taste that you probably only get in every meal in heaven. First step to roasting pine nuts is deciding how you want to turn out. Many people love them when they are just lightly cooked with a little crisp to them. I love the when there moderately cook and not too charcoaled. On the other hand, we have many customers, especially those used to the New Mexico Hard Shell Pinon, Arizona and Colorado Pinon way of roasting pine nuts that love them roasted to a perfect and hardened crisp, which to others they considered them close to charcoaled. Either way, they will taste great as long as they are not literally charcoaled. Roasting pine nuts has its benefits with flavor, however those who wish to eat pine nuts for their nutritious benefits will find that once the pine nuts are cooked any amount they have less nutritional value. There are many people as well that prefer them raw and not roasted. Although those people like the taste of the roasted pine nuts they enjoy the raw ones more. If you have not tried roasting your pine nuts than perhaps you might want to keep it that way, because many people who do trying roasting pine nuts and sample them will never want them any other way. Of course, to those of you who are a little less spoiled you might just stick with the raw one and not take the time or may not have the interest in eating them roasted.

Have you ever tried pine nut salad? Ok, so it is not exactly pine nut salad, it is pine nuts in salad. Quite a whole bunch of pine nuts though. As a matter of fact, pine nuts can be put in almost any type of salad and taste great. It doesn’t mean that the dominant ingredient has to be pine nuts. You can get the basic chef salad and break up 4-10 pine nuts on top of it all and just by doing that it will improve the flavor incredibly. Many people after trying pine nuts in salads will request pine nuts when they are eating a salad at their favorite formal restaurant. So, when you look at it, pine nuts are an addition to an everyday salad, just like the dressing or the croutons, or the crispy noodles. On the other hand pine nut salad, does exist and it is a salad, but one with a very distinguished flavor in comparison to the common everyday salads. Many people may consider that pine nut salad is more in flavor and taste to a soup, however that is another recipe and in total, they are all great.

People ask me what are best, raw pine nuts or roasted pine nuts? Well, I than ask them to be more specific because what exactly do they mean by best? Do they mean taste? Do they mean best in size or best in health? Depending on their specific question I would reply either raw pine nuts, roasted pine nuts, or even, salted roasted pine nuts.

Many years ago when I purchased several edible pine nuts from China I began to easily see that pine nuts price is not based on labor, but on quality. I could tell in the store that there were pine nuts from more than just one country, such as Korea, Afghanistan, Russia, Portugal, and Italy. They all at that time were being sold as bulk pine nuts for the same price a pound. Ok, so what determined the pine nuts price at that time was not exactly the pine nuts nutrition or the size, it was the demand. Due to that specific store being located in a very diverse cultural area they had a high demand of pine nuts even Korean pine nuts or those pine nuts china almost all year round. From all these many different cultures a large or majority of the consumers purchased this commodity due to its pine nuts nutrition. Bulk pine nuts have always been known to be a bit cheaper or lower in price however those pine nuts specifically from China or pine nuts china have always seemed until the last recent years to have the lowest price.

Many people trying growing pine nuts with little success, due to their sensitive nature; which is more risky when one tries to plant the unordinary. Storing pine nuts is another thing that is sensitive depending on how long you wish for them to be preserved and on the pine nuts origin. The pine nut tree can be found in where the natives call the pine nut Mountains. Growing pine nuts outside of the pine nut mountains is costly than just buying them at Wholesale Pine Nuts. I have heard, but am not certain, that in China and Russia they plant their forests; which in the most part are boarding forest where the Chinese pine nuts are harvested. When it comes to the pine nuts origin you really need to know the basics as to where and when the pine nuts were harvested. That can tell a pine nut man a lot about the pine nuts origin. However, to keep things simple many believe that pine nuts are only found in their native land, since there has never really been a need to harvest or to growing pine nuts in foreign land.

Additional Pine Nut Information added August 25th, 2010 1:52 PM MT:

Eating raw pine nuts in shell is a very healthy habit, since you are not taking any of the nutritional value out of the pine nuts by cooking them or changing there chemistry. I recall back when I would only eat the raw pine nuts in the shell. This was only mainly due to the fact that I did not know how to roast them or bake them. Once I discovered how, I began using the two or three different variations of eating pine nuts. Although I love the roasted pine nuts in shell, I have to say that my ultimate is the raw pine nuts in shell. My friends agree half the time, others will say that the roasted are by far better. However, many will admit that when salting them, the salt can be a little too much sometimes and leave a pinenutholic with a burnt tongue. By far, to me, the raw pine nuts in shell keep you happy and never leave you regretting you ate so much. Since pine nuts are so healthy for you, just note that they will only do you good when eating raw pine nuts in shell. The raw pine nuts with no shell are not as fresh and do not contain as much nutritional value as a fresh in shell pine nut.

Have you ever tried shelling pine nuts? I have! It is actually quite easy, however, when shelling large quantities for certain recipes, it can be very time consuming and painstakingly frustrating. That is why restaurants or many other individuals or companies, such as those that make pesto sauce, will prefer not shelling pine nuts on their own. They will actually buy only pre-shelled pine nuts or pay another company to shell their pine nuts. However, on an individual basis shelling pine nuts for a quick snacks is much preferred, especially if the pine nuts are roasted with salt. Pine nuts, at least the Nevada and California pine nuts can easily be crack by using your teeth and or your fingers. Once you have had a moment of practice shelling pine nuts, it is no big deal to most people, and even easier and more worthwhile than the loved sunflower seeds.

If you have not already tried roasting pine nuts in shell than you might want to consider it. Leaving the shell on to roast the pine nuts is most preferred by individuals, because the shell allows for a more thorough toast throughout and within the seed. Roasting pine nuts in shell actually is one of the best way to bake your pine nuts and will bring out the outstanding flavor this commodity contains. Looking back now until the time when I first became familiar with pine nuts, I recall always roasting pine nuts in shell. Besides it being faster and more simple to do so, I think it is the way many cultures have always known how to cook pine nuts. As my family personally prefers roasting pine nuts in shell, we never prior to about a year ago, had roasted any large amounts pine nuts with no shell. However, we learn new things everyday and as a family that focuses on pine nuts a one form of business, we are always looking for new horizons and technique to improve what we offer to our customers.

When comparing the many different ways to roast pine nuts we run into the the most common way of roasting them. That for is know as “unshelled roasting” or “roasting unshelled pine nuts”, which is also referred as “roasting pine nuts”, since all pine nuts originally have a shell. “Unshelled” is the opposite of “shelled”, shelled meaning, depending on the way in which it is used, and action, being the action of shelling, or “shell being removed”. Therefore unshelled is “a shell that is not being or has not been removed”. However, when using a phrase such as “this is a shelled pine nut”, it refers to a pine nuts with the shell on. Ok, so back to roasting unshelled pine nuts, or pine nuts “with” the shell on. The majority of our customers, having been very familiar with the Nevada Pinyon Pine Nuts, have never or never had prior, tried roasting the pine nuts any other way, than unshelled, or “with” the shell on. To many people, roasting unshelled pine nuts is the most obvious and convenient way to roast pine nuts. To this day, we have many customers who have not even tried roasting pine nuts without the shell because they are accustomed and satisfied with what they have always done, that is, roasting unshelled pine nuts.

Every now and than when roasting shelled pine nuts some families will use an olive oil or butter to a specific amount, which adds an extra texture and flavor to the recipe. It is said or know that roasting shelled pine nuts, or pine nuts with no shell that in order to prevent burning a baking or frying ingredient is necessary. Many people will use basic standard cooking oil which leaves a weird or unwanted taste in the pine nuts. That is why is is very important that when roasting shelled pine nuts that you have an oil or other ingredient in which flavor you really do enjoy. I know that some people will use margarine in their recipe and call our company complaining about that bad after taste. All of this can be prevented by roasting shelled pine nuts with a much more preferable additive or oil.

Have you ever tried to find or buy pine nuts bulk and been given the runarounds and deceptive prices. I know in the past decades we have had many customers whom have been able to discover our company who said that that’s exactly what happened to them. When comparing pine nut prices in bulk to the retail price, you will be amazed at the drastic differences. When buying pine nuts bulk you will tend to save a great deal on if you just bought pine nuts every now and than. Especially if you are a pine nut addict and you can’t help but purchase them every time you visit the grocery store. Besides saving a lot by buying pine nuts bulk, you will actually save time and gas, because those of you who grew up on this commodity will know that it is not uncommon to drive clear to the store just to get your favorite winter snack.

I get asked a lot about any good pine nut substitute, something that is not so expensive, but that equals the greatness of pine nuts. I often would tell them that some people will stay with sun flower seeds or pistachios, while others will choose pecans or walnuts. Sunflowers seeds, happen to be a number one pine nut substitute, but not because of taste or greatness, but because like pine nuts when roasted, they have been known to help keep people awake. Now when I get asked if sunflower seeds is a good pine nut substitute, I will tell them “Unfortunately not.” Due to my opinion that nothing other than a pine nut can substitute for another pine nut.

Throughout my selling days I was confronted many times about pine nut shortage. People would sometimes go a year or two, or three without pine nuts being available in the stores, this resulting in me being asked so many times in a good harvest year about pine nut shortage. In which case I would refer to the year or years prior and than tell the customer that this year was either a prosperous year, that we had a bumper crop, or that, it was scarce, but that we were able to find them. Years ago when we would sell to the stores, we would get demands like crazy due to the pine nut shortage. However, years ago, even in a scarce year, prices were still very low, and it made a big difference as to our business needs, for we were making less than prior year, as cost were the same, if not more. Now, we have learned much and during a pine nut shortage, we take into consideration inflated prices and customer pricing limits, so to be fair for both sides, from seller to buyer.

What is pine nut production? Well pine nut production is simply how many, weight-wise, pine nuts or pine cones are harvested in any given area. I have seen in my life a wave of difference in pine nut production from year to year. It seems that in years that pine nuts are a bumper crop that there is a period of 2-4 years until there is another good harvest. Now, a bumper crop for pine nut production it appears has happened around every 6-10 years in the last 50 years that our family has been harvesting this commodity.

Pine nuts prices, as you can tell, have fluctuated very much in the last seven harvesting season. I vividly remember when pine nuts 7 years ago were easily and happily sold for a mere $4.50 - $5.50 a pound. Now a days the prices retail ranges from $8 - $13.00 per pound. Theses jumping differences in pine nuts prices more than likely shows an idea of the inflated price in the dollar. Since I am no economist I cannot say for certain, however, our prices have gone up simply due to a raise in our expenses, which include the raise in wages. I imagine that in order for any company to stay on top of things, they must first assure that there expense do not overwhelm there profit margin to stay in business.

Did you know that depending on the variety of pine nut, that pine nuts sale at some very interesting price gaps or differences. For example, the Nevada Soft Shell Pine Nuts sale for approximately thirty to forty percent cheaper than the New Mexico Pinon Pine Nuts. Pine Nuts sale for almost one hundred percent more in China than they do in the USA. This is mainly due to the nature in which the pine nut is provided, which is with the husk or shell removed, leaving more pine nut meat per pound. It is interesting to note that when USA pine nuts sale cheaper than in other locations, it is mainly because the pine nuts did not have to be transported as far as the others.

When pine nuts sales are low, it is not precisely a reflection on prices, it is a reflection on demand. It is common knowledge that after the holidays, in this case I’ll say Christmas pine nuts are normally sold out and not available on the market. However, we have realized that once people discover that pine nuts are indeed still on the market, pine nuts sales will increase. However, due to this being the case, that pine nuts are not much known to be available after New Years, pine nuts sales are never or have never been significantly high for most stores or companies in the later months after the Fall season.

The last time I had seen pine nuts on sale was not because the seller was having a “good day”, but because the pine nuts were not as fresh and demand was not as high for the less fresher ones. It makes sense doesn’t it. I mean, when a commodity is not so popular, especially due to quality, than the price cannot be raised, instead the pine nuts on sale are sometimes reduced in price even more. On the other hands, many stores or companies will place there pine nuts on sale to attract attention within the market and shortly afterwards raise the price substantially to make up for lost profits. However, If you can find pine nuts on sale, and they are great quality, than why not take advantage of that opportunity and get them while the price is low.

Ever since 801 pine nut .com arrived on the internet we have received many emails as to why we used that name. well, to keep it simple 801 pine nut .com is just another quick way to remember a phone number and a web site at the same time. As you imagine, WholeSale Pine Nuts .com uses 801 pine nut .com to promote there local access number or business web site that sells pine nuts. We are looking for other ways to promote our web site by using such strategies as a phone number and a domain name simultaneous on bumper stickers. Let us know if you found 801 pine nut .com on a bumper sticker, we’d like to know if there working.

We began using 801 pine nuts .com as another domain source for pine nuts since it was easy to memorize into a phone number along with 801 pine nut .com in which the singular and plural form of the word “pine nut(s)” often led to misspelling. Whether you go to our web site 801 pine nuts .com or 775 pine nut .com you will see that we are the same provider. There is nothing wrong with owning other websites that customers know you by. For example, 801 pine nuts .com has its benefits, because most people who type in the url address bar will almost always put the plural form of a word instead of its singular form. Now when is comes to using it as a phone number we imagine that most everyone knows that 801 pine nuts .com already has too many digits for a phone number, therefore on our bumper stickers it show 801 pine nut .com; pine nut having seven digits and 801 being the complete number with ten digits.

When our customers in Nevada ask us for a quick number to contact us at we simply tell them 775 pine nut .com and they immediately know that 775 pine nut is the number and if they wanted to go to our web site all they do is type in the .com after of phone number in the web browser and immediately they will find us. 775 pine nut .com makes it easy for customers to order and to get in contact with WholeSale Pine Nuts .com. Many times we will actually give out the wrong number to the wrong people or by accident. For example we tell an interested buyer to call us at “775 pine nuts .com” and they say “Wait, I want a phone number not a web site” Well we simply tell them to just dial the first ten digits or letters of that domain name and they’ll be able to remember and call us at that number. The same concept applies with 775 pine nut .com, which is the singular form. Since both web site addresses or numbers contain the identical first ten characters the customer cannot be mistaken when calling using that information.

I get asked by a few customers, what is the difference between having this web site or the other domain name, well not that there is a physical difference between 775 pine nuts .com and 775 pine nut .com, but that there is a technical difference, in which has all to do with peoples spelling habits and memory. I know this all seems like a bunch of nonsense, since all you want to do is buy pine nuts. Well than, call 775 pine nuts .com or WholeSale Pine Nuts .com and we can get your order out as soon as possible. Another thing to mention, in case none of this is making any sense, is that 775 pine nuts .com has the contact number of the company within the first ten digits of its domain name, being 775 - PINE NUT.

Interesting Pine Nut Production, Growth Information, and Photos below:

Pinyon Pine Tree (Optimal for Pine Nut Production)

Pinyon Pine tree cones under development in late Spring. In the late Summer of 2010 this tree here will be optimal in maturity and size to yield a good harvest when nature permits it according to environmental conditions. This tree already has gone from pollination to cone development for approximately 16 months and lacks two more months for seeds to mature and be ready for the harvest for 2010. To Top

 

Pinyon Pine Tree Under Pollination (Pollen seen on many Branches)

This Pinyon Pine tree receives adequate nourishment from humidity and other sources from mother nature and environmental conditions. We know this due to the fact that the tree is dark green and has yield forth a tremendous amount of pollen. One can tell without any scientific analysis that this tree is strong and feels healthy to begin its 18 month cycle for fruit production which began with pollination in the early spring of 2010. By late Spring this tree, if it continues to be healthy and feels strong, will yield forth a small pinyon pine cone the size of a small marble and than become dormant until the following spring of 2011, than maturing with seed for harvest that following summer. To Top

 

Pinyon Pine Cones Development (Big and Small Cones)

Pinyon Pine tree with cones under development in late Spring 2010. This picture illustrates that the large cone, if mother nature permits, will be ripened and ready to harvest by late summer. The small marble size cones will remain dormant for the rest of the year of 2010, until the following Spring of 2011 when they will commence growth. By late Spring the small cones, if mother nature permits will look the size of the large cones and than yield fruit or pine nut seed by late summer of 2011. To Top

 

Pinyon Pine Cones In Late Spring (Bumper Crop)

Pinyon Pine tree in the late Spring of 2010 with a bumper crop on its limbs. These cones are still under development, the cone will continue to grow some more and the seeds inside will continue to develop and mature by the 2nd week of September. By late Spring these cones look healthy, like there going to yield forth fruit. However, sometimes, by Mother Natures lack of nourishment and environmental conditions, some cones will tend to wither away and die. To Top

 

American Pinyon Pine Nut and Pinon Pine Nut Production Information for Fall Season of 2010:

The Nevada Soft Shell Jumbo Pine Nut harvest for the season of 2010 is looking to be approximately 50% less of what it was last season in 2009. Due to insufficient moisture and nourishment for the continuation of seed development in late Spring and Summer, many areas simply withered away and dried up. There is still expected to be a harvest of significant amount for the public to have there share of pine nuts. Expect a considerable price increase in comparison to a month through a year ago. On the other hand there is much prospect towards the 2011 harvest, which is looking very positive and good so far. However we still lack twelve months to determine its production.

Now for the New Mexico SouthWest Hard Shell Pinon Pine Nuts, the harvest for this year is predicted to be very low in comparison to last year. There are too many factors involved and all the reasons would be too many to list. The 2011 harvest for the New Mexico SouthWest Hard Shell Pinon Pine Nuts is looking very promising towards a bumper crop. However, we will have to see what happens in 2011. To Top

 

Pinyon Pine Tree with Perished (Dry) and Healthy Cones

This picture illustrates a Pinyon Pine tree and pine cone in late summer 2010. This shows the green cone mature and ready to harvest by later summer 2010, while the dry cones on the left display that due to the lack of moisture and other environmental conditions the cones have become brown and dried up and have been caused to perish (plaques are also another factor involved). Unfortunately, only the green cones will yield harvest as the brown cones represent the many dead and aborted cones. We estimate that over 50% of the harvest of 2010 has perished this way due to lack of humidity and plaques. To Top

Pinyon Pine Nut Seed FrostBite Damage (September 6th or 7th, 2010)

Pine Nut Seed Frostbite

On or around September 6th or 7th 2010 the pine nut producing mountains of Nevada for the year received a chill which was the cause for a percentage of damage to the seeds of the producing trees in the area. Due to the freeze many pine nut seeds were frozen and left inedible for the natural inhabitants of the forest, as well for human consumption. This occurrence is not the only of its kind. It is actually common, if not a factor of nature for such to take place annually, with or without an anticipated harvest on the line, in practically all the forests in Nevada. The images above show a pine nut in which we have removed the shell to show you how the seed has been damaged. The images display the exact same pine nut, just at different angles to get a better view at the damage caused by the freeze. Notice the thicker end of the pine nut, which was the least damaged, however due to its color, light pink (or beige), it is still damaged and literally speaking, remains inedible. The beige color should in fact be white, which is a sign of a good maturing seed. Remember, this is a Nevada Soft Shell Pine Nut and all the details in the above paragraph are in reference to this species of pine nut. To Top

Cause for "Pine Mouth Syndrome" or "Metallogeusia" in Pine Nuts Discovered

WholeSale Pine Nuts .com staff is pleased to announce that they have discovered the reason behind bitterness in pine nuts, known as “pine mouth” or “pine mouth syndrome” and medically as “metallogeusia“ (meh-tal-ah-GOO-zee-ah). We dedicated much time and effort to come up with these knowledgeable results and we do not intend to be greedy with the information, but as you know, knowledge, time and effort deserve credit and compensation.

We intend to pass this on to our customers in offering them a clean and pure product in our shelled (no shell) pine nuts, that they may enjoy the benefit of our trade secret of bitter-free pine nuts, as we will continue to offer this product in the near future. We hope to begin making them available by the end of November 2010. We have marketed several thousand pounds of our product to different parts of America (USA) and we have not had a single, yes, that’s right, not one bad feedback or complaint by our several hundred customers of bitterness in our pine nuts. We are satisfied with our results of zero percent (0 %) complaints of bitter after-taste in our product. Our trade secret is available to anyone who is interested to know. We can discuss with anyone our trade secret that they may also offer bitterness free pine nuts to the world.

As you may already know, the cause of pine mouth has to the most part been merely speculated or theorized and possibly those who do know have not yet spoken out. We are not here to point fingers, we only want to inform those interested in how to provide bitter-free pine nuts using the knowledge that we have discovered.

Throughout this last season (2009) when we began to offer American (USA) shelled (no shell) pine nuts we received many emails and phone calls demanding to know if our pine nuts were bitter-free because the customer had once gone through a stage of “metallogeusia” and only wanted pine nuts that were bitter-free, and guaranteed to be bitter-free. Thus, our research and many prior years of experience and knowledge with pine nuts, we began offering, bitter-free pine nuts and more specifically bitter-free shelled (no shell) pine nuts. Best of all, to all you who esteem your American Patriotism, our pine nuts are American Pine Nuts or better said “Produce of U.S.A.” or “Product of U.S.A.”.

For now we find little need to explain here in this article what consumers are experiencing with this “pine nut mouth syndrome”, due to the overwhelming amount of stories and information and the many published articles that can be found by doing a quick search on the web. Therefore, for now, we will leave this article as is.

We hope that if you have suffered from pine nut mouth, that you will consider buying our shelled (no shell) pine nuts and give them a try and put our words and guaranty to the test. Whichever you decide, we hope you never have to go through another phase or stage of “metallogeusia” or easier pronounced and commonly know as “pine mouth” or “pine mouth syndrome”. Have a lovely day! To Top

Naturally Opened Healthy Pine Cone with Healthy Seed

The above image gives a close example to one the most ideal forms and body structures of a healthy pine cone with seed. As you can tell the seeds are dark, which is in sense is due to its high form of health, being rich in vital nutrients and very fresh. Although pine nuts that are less darker taste great, it is highly said that the best tasting Nevada Pinyon Pine Nuts are those with a darker color, while on the other hand, many others say that the taste is to slight to really tell the difference. If you look more closely at the pine cone at the second to lowest set of pine seed slots (pouches holding the seed), there is a seed missing on the left. Although we do not recall or know if this seed was missing before or after this particular cone was naturally open, we do know that in nature there are some seedless pockets or slots found in many pine cones. We know this because we have opened up green cones and seen the empty pouches and or slots; when ninety-five percent of them were full. If you could see this image in larger view, it appears almost as if there is indeed a light colored pine nut in this empty-looking pouch, however it will now be difficult to confirm this for certain, due to the fact that since this picture was taken we have already removed the seeds from this cone, along with many others.

If you focus on the tip-top of the open cone you will see that there are two other empty pouches or seed slots. These, we are sure did originally contain a seed in each one; however due to nature and movement they must of fallen loose to the ground. On the other hand, just as with the other description of the lower empty pouch, it is not uncommon for these tip-top pouches to naturally be empty; the opposite is also true. Another detail to point out is that, the outer cone (as you can see is the lighter green outline) originally was dark forest green and as the sun heated the cone and dried it up the color faded. Eventually this fresh cone will lose its green shade and fade to a light brown, followed by a sudden change into a rougher darker brown as it ages. Next (below),we will show you examples of pine cones that are not as healthy. We do not like to call them dry pine cones, since the cone above actually is dry, yet not completely dry. The pine nuts you will see take on a drastic physical change when nature intervenes or when they do not have there necessary nutrients provided them. To Top

Damaged Pinyon Pine Cone with Blighted Seed

Pine Cone With Blighted Seed

There are many people who do not take the time to realize that on the large scale all pine nuts, in this case, American pine nuts, grow naturally in the forest where practically 100% of the time Mother-Nature determines the outcome of every seasons harvest. I am not aware of there being any large or significantly large scale "Human grown" (human up bringing) and "human cultivated" for production, going on throughout the world where pine trees are producing seed for commercial or social purposes. In other words, I do not know of any "Pine Tree Orchards Producing Pine Nuts" in which the company or individual benefits by harvesting the seed from the orchard. From my understanding and view point, such an endeavor would, business wise for the sake of profit, be a financial expense that would logically never pay itself off; considering expenses of not relying on nature for nutrients and water along with operating cost, not to mention the many years to get a healthy producing tree. Otherwise, forest transplants would not be considered an exact "human grown" tree.

Alright, now your probably wondering where all this fits into our main topic of "blighted seed". Although the above mentioned can actually cover its own article, I wanted to mention it since many people actually believe that pine nuts, in this case, American pine nuts, or our famous "Nevada Soft Shell Pine Nuts", are harvested in what they call or think is our "Privately owned Orchards". Which is far from the case and neither exist. Knowing this they would never question the scarcity of a season. However, since many are unaware that the commercial pine nut trade relies 100% on Natural Producing trees found in the Natural Forest of the world, in our case, the American forests, we feel to need to mention all this.

Now, looking at the images above you can see that the outer green color of the cone appears to be normal. As a matter of fact, looking at the cone from the outside, the cone appears normal and to the average spectator, healthy. However, there are signs, which I will not discuss at this time, to tell from the outside if the cone is healthy (if the seed is healthy inside). In some cases the seed only becomes damaged once the cone has opened and the seed receives excessive sun exposure or wind damage. On the other hand, in this case, the seed was damaged and dehydrated before it was opened. One of the common reasons for this is simply a lack of nutrients, most-likely water being the major factor. Another common-denominator is that the harsh weather demanded that the cone itself receive the nutrients that was intended for the seed and due to the priority of protecting the seed (the cone being the protective shelter) little nutrients was left for the seed to fully develop. Of course this would only of been the case if there was not a sufficient amount of nutrients to provide for both the cone and the seed. This is something to consider.

Some of the seeds are darker brown then the rest and may as in this case contain holes, which cannot easily be seen in the image above. Although we are not sure for this specific cone, many of these blighted cones where once infested with a worm or worms. These worms enter the cone and deprive it of its nutrients by literally entering the seeds and consuming partial or all of their meaty interior. We are not quite sure why the worm only partially consumes a portion of the seed. It causes us to wonder more when we see several partially consumed seeds within the same cone. Interestingly enough, in a majority of the seed we harvest that was once infested by this worm we do not see the worm, dead nor alive. It would make sense that once the bug received what it needed it would leave. To Top

Season Forcast for Upcoming 2011 Harvest

For all that would like to know how the 2011 Pinyon pine nuts harvest is coming along in regards to ecology in weather patterns, we have great news. As of October 1, 2010 the mountain ranges of Nevada have received above average precipitation for the following harvest of 2011; which is of great significance. As of November 15, 2010 a good snow pack has begun to accumulate in many of the mountain ranges in the great state of Nevada that will last and remain until the following spring of 2011. These snow packs are and have the greatest value towards a potential bumper Pinyon pine nut harvest for the fall of 2011. If Mother-Nature continues with such an aggressive way of delivering nourishment to the forest in the southwest and western states, as we have not seen in many years, we can expect with great anticipation a fabulous and healthy bumper crop of Pinyon pine nuts and pinion piñon nuts.

Check back regularly as we will continue to monitor month to month and month by month the weather patterns of the southwest and western states. These weather patterns are the main factors in bringing forth the healthy and abundant harvest of Pinyon pine nuts in the states of Nevada, California, Utah, Idaho and Wyoming along with the Pinion piñon nuts in the states of New Mexico, Colorado and Arizona.

2011 Harvest Forecast and Snow Packs

Pinyoun Pine Tree Snow Packs 2010

Great news concerning pignoli nuts, pinon nuts and most commonly called, pine nuts, for all those in the world community that enjoy a positive and reliable forecast about Pinyon pine nuts or pignoli nuts. The snow packs in the mountains of the West and Southwest are continuing in a very aggressive Fall season of 2010 with above average precipitation in the months of October and above average snow packs in November and December 2010. These are the number one factors to look for in the weather pattern of an 18 months cycle of maturity for the wonderful nuts called pignoli nuts or pinon nuts.

For all of you who wish to know, “pignoli” is an Italian word which signifies the word “pine nuts” here in America. In most cases when referring to “pignoli”, it is actually understood as meaning a “pine nut that has no shell” or that “has been shelled”. Therefore, we here at WholeSale Pine Nuts are anticipating a very bumper crop of pignoli nuts for the fall of 2011 if things continue as humid and with above average precipitations as we have not seen in perhaps more than two decades. Of course, we still have 8 months to go before we know the outcome of our forecast. This forecast is based on our knowledge acquired over the previous 50 years, which perhaps makes us the most credible source for the American pignoli harvest forecast. We never claim to be a hundred percent accurate, since it is only a prediction based on experience and things can change at any moments in time. We are not only pleased, but we are extremely pleased, to be the only family owned business in America to market Shelled (no shell) American grown pignoli nuts. We much prefer to call them American pignoli nuts when they do not have there shell. As time progresses more and more we will convert to call them pignoli nuts which sounds much better than shelled pine nuts or no shell pine nuts.

As we continue with a very optimistic view into the near future of 2011 concerning the pine nut forecast we can also relate that the mountain ranges of the West and Southwest were quite bumper in some areas with the marble size dormant cones, which will continue to develop in the early Spring of 2011 and potentially yield forth the fruit we call pignoli nuts in the Fall of 2011. Let’s not disregard the fact that plagues can take a heavy toll on the delicate, young, immature pinon pine cone that can take a great down fall of the 2011 Fall harvest of pignoli nuts. In the previous scenario you can have just the right amount of precipitation and still have a poor harvest or no harvest at all.

As a side note we are pleased to announce that you can reach us on the web by simply typing “pignolinuts.com” into the address bar. Please check back soon for more updates as we continue to monitor the 2011 pignoli harvest still in development. To Top

Snow Packs Continued and their Necessity

In our previous article above on snow packs we discussed the importance of snow packs in attaining a bumper year in our await for a pignoli and pine nut harvest along with what Italians refer to as "pinoli", which is our American term for pine nut. These snow packs allow for a consistent stream of nourishment and water to feed and nourish the Pinyon pine trees near the end of winter and in the Spring all the way to through the Summer. As the Snow accumulates its weight hardens allowing a stronger molecular grip that holds the packs and preserves them for a longer period of time, similar to ice or a glacier. The pignoli and pinoli, or pine nut receives the watering as the ice packs slowly melts. In the most common case the shade the Pinyon pine tree produces will allow for a cooler environment so that snow packs benefiting the pine nuts and tree remain longer and more effectively last through the warmer seasons. This long preserving duration of the snow packs also allows for the potential addition of more snow or ice from frozen water to accumulate onto the already long lasting snow packs. Therefore the pine nuts are nourished and water even longer than originally anticipated or thought of. It is common belief that snow packs are of the most vital and essential environmental assets that a producing Pinyon pine tree has for the perseverance and mature growth of its fruit, the pine nut, pinoli, and or the pignoli.

As much is speculated there is a wide growth in scientific and ecological research that can back up these and some of the most commonly believed and thought of concepts of pinoli and pine nut seed production. We plan on looking more into these essential environmental aspects in the near future postings that we write about. In such a way we can all share and expound on how nature cares for itself and mans treasures. We treasure and value the forests as a priority and in our harvest of pine nuts, seek out the best interest for the growth and production of the forest as its is not only a part of our family business, but it has become engraven within our very own human nature and has been a second home to us.

Conditions of the Forest in the West and Southwest: Hopeful Bumper Crop Harvest for 2011

As the environment continues to be favorable in the west and southwest for the Pinyon pine forest and pinon pine forest, we hope that this proceed until mid-summer of 2011, that the forest may bring forth mature and healthy Pinyon pine cone or pinon pine cone, that we may have a fruitful harvest of healthy American pignoli nut. We hope and anticipate their to be a much better bumper crop than the previous year of 2010. By this means we can offer our pignoli nuts and American pinoli nuts at a much more favorable and lower cost in comparison to other pine nut prices.

Be optimistic with us and say your prayers that the good Lord will bless our forest in the US with all its means necessary that we may not have to rely on foreign imports of pignoli nuts in our food supply. There are millions of us here in America that love these very unique and distinguished small nuts called pignoli nuts, with hundreds if not thousands of ways to consume them. It’s amazing how we all individually have our very unique way of consuming pignoli and American pinoli nuts. With hundreds of different ways to roast them, hundreds of ways to eat them raw, hundreds of ways of eating them with different ingredients and hundreds of claims in the world of health benefits for the human race; not to exclude nature herself. This by all means is of the most difficult nut to grow and of the most difficult to harvest in the world. But in the same time, of all of us that know this nut, we treasure it above all nuts, making it, to us, king of nuts.

Despite having great precipitation and snow packs, whether you knew this or not, the conditions of the forest, in regards to the freezing conditions and low temperatures, place a most profound part in the all natural environment to bring forth a bumper harvest. By no means can you have a good bumper harvest without a cold, freezing, long autumn and winter. This is most essential, for a tree and its fruit remains in a dormant and undeveloped condition for a long period of time in the fall and winter season before awakening. To some of you this may seem rare, but it is recorded that mild and warmer autumns and winters disrupt the Pinyon pine trees and pinon pine trees from there unique dormancy, that in Spring, they would otherwise commence a rapid growth and pollination with more vigor and strength. All things must be done in their season thereof, with their unique temperatures and with the complete environment in their favor that composes and completes a healthy long 18 month cycle of maturity of the unique fruit we call pignoli nuts and pine nuts.

We intend to gather the biggest and largest Pinyon pine nut and pinon nut encyclopedia, on our website, with information, videos and photos in the next decade. To Top

The Greatness and Significance of Pine Nut oil!

There has always been much confusion, speculation and concerns regarding the consumption of pine nuts or pignoli due to there high fat content. The sweet rich flavor of a healthy fresh or aged pine nut no doubt comes from its fat. If you were to press or squeeze or even bite a fresh pine nuts or pignoli you can savor, along with feel, the juice in the seed, which consist mostly of oil. Fat and oil go hand in hand, for oil consists literally of Fat! In this case we are referring to Essential Fatty Acids.

Every cell in the body works and functions of off Essential Fatty Acids. These are the same oils or fats that pine nuts consist of in a highly concentrated proportions. Depending on the specific variety of pine nut, pignoli, or pinon you will see a varying ratio of fat content included in this type of nut. For example, the Siberian Pine Nut and New Mexico Pinon contain some of the highest amounts of fats per mass. Pine nuts are known around the world as being extremely healthy in so many different ways. This is one of the greatest and significant reasons why pine nut oil is used worldwide; as a health benefactor.

Many people use pine nut and pignoli oil as a healthy and natural metabolism enhancer. Pine Nut oil helps optimize the cells to balance high metabolism and increase slow metabolism. It is interesting to note that many people think that the high fat content of pine nuts will cause them to gain weight and fat, however, just the opposite is the case. The word “fat” in general appears to be misleading and very misunderstood to the common public. There are “good” fats and there are “bad” fats. As a matter of fact, the cell membrane, the cells protective layer, is made up of lipids that live and survive off of oils or fats that allow them to function.

As time goes on we will continue to bring more information to you about pine nuts and there significance to health in the medical and natural community. We will also look more at the facts and criteria that makes pine nut oil such a miraculous treat to the human body. To Top

Forecast Continuation for Fall 2011 Pine Nuts and Pinon

Its been a while since we last posted any information on the potential of our upcoming 2011 pine nut and pinon harvest. We have been using our experience and also modern science to establish more accurate forecasts. The pine nuts and pinon found in our American heritage valleys both in the South and Central-Western states vary production from season to season based not exactly on possibly predictable cycles appearing normal in nature, but what we like to say, on randomness, similar to what is said of pinoli and pignoli, although on a much smaller level. We say smaller level because other countries producing pine nuts or pignoli produce an enormous amount more than we do here in the USA, particularly because we have very limited forest lands, but also due to a shortage of labors, high operation costs, and our regulatory land and forest laws, for the good of everyone, nature included.

Its is said that no one can really accurately predict the weather, no human or publicly known computer system; think how accurate is your local news the majority of the time. During the many years in which we have scouted out pine nuts and pinon there have been a plethora of occasions wherein we felt or thought we understood the signs of a very prosperous and plentiful forthcoming year for pine nuts and pinon, only to shortly see the works of nature take form into a drought, freeze, burning, wind or storm that wipes the well expected bumper crop into scarcity or mild quantities. This is why we agree with the prior statement, for with over 50 years of family experience with pinion and pinyon we can say that farming is not much different from harvesting with Mother Nature. Of course, we should not disregard all the new scientific engineering that has been going on for sometime. However, since we are speaking of a natural and quite considerable organic product, we will stick with our same statement on successfully predicting a harvest of pine nuts and pignoli (pinoli). For we truly see that nature can make pine nuts and pinon and also break them. You know, the usual “make it, break it” thesis, although, who would really want to prove something by breaking what they just created, especially if it took a while to create. Either way, we find “randomness” to be a fair word to use at this moment when regarding pine nuts, pignoli, pinion and pinoli.

Throughout the first three months of this fascinating year of 2011 we here in the USA have heard of quite a number of storms seeming quite unusual for the time of year, occurring in rather quite unusual locations, for example, the freezing and below freezing temperatures to hit in the southern states, as well as snow in the lower elevations in unusually strange (elevation and climate wise) places in New Mexico and Texas. These are places where it is normal for it not to even drop a dash of snow in the winter months. However, like we mentioned, the weather really is 100% unpredictable. The growing and maturing process, as well as the harvesting process of pine nuts and pinon nuts is the same concept as farming and harvesting something that depends on someone or something else other than the farmers labor and efforts to provide for it; its only obviously wouldn‘t you say. Let’s think out loud. If the farmer doesn’t have all the right equipment, seed, land etc., how can they expect a good crop. The common farmer now a days gets his or her seed from another source, and their water rights are restricted according to government regulations. Well, that seed won’t produce if it isn’t buried, and that plant won’t grow if it is not watered, and definitely that seed won’t be harvested if it is not picked one way or the other. Now, you can see that those pine nuts, pinion, pinon, pinyon, pignoli, pinoli or which ever word you prefer to call them and that harvest cannot be plentiful if the conditions of nature are not to its benefit. If it does not rain, the cone could be stunted or remain premature, containing unripened seed or seed that will dry out before its time (hollowed seed). If it freezes, the frozen cone could perish over night, possibly even if the cone was already ripened enough for harvest. Excessive heat exposure could damage a green cone or dry up an already opened fresh cone. Let’s not forget the wind can carry and scatter away seed and dry opened cone ready for picking. If a cone is wide open, birds or other animals can take much of the trees seed, leaving few or none for you once you get to the top of the tree. Likewise, in both scenarios Mother Nature can determine the harvest (this is only regarding the standard traditional farming method of farming outdoors on land where the soil is the actual land itself) fate at its discretion. The start of this year has showed a strange turn of weather patterns, but nothing that has not happened before. It is truly in time, if ever one can even say “enough time” gone by, that we will see what is to happen in regards to a current years harvest of pinon and pine nuts. Let us not forget that pignoli, pinoli, pinyon and pinion throughout the world cannot disregard Mother Natures affect as well. No matter where the tree or forest is, anything dependable on nature will experience the effects and consequences of those effects. It is rather interesting to note that all pine nut tree varieties have been shown to grow only at certain altitudes and elevations, depending on the species of pine tree, likewise, have they been shown to only produce cones and seeds at specific elevations, or so it appears to be the case when referring to the fertility of the tree (in other words, we are not saying that not every tree produces seed, we are simply saying that at certain elevations the trees produce cones far more abundantly and noticeably than at other elevations, meaning that much more cones are found at just the right elevation).

It is probably possible to look back at the typical harvesting locations within Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Utah, Southern Oregon and California and see the weather forecast for the past 20 years and relate that to harvesting trends to make a predictive assumption of the upcoming harvest of pinion and pinyon. However, we can say that doing so will, without much further thought, lead to a rather wasteful bunch of study and research. Being in this business as long as we have, we can say that most undoubtedly! If we are wrong, we would be more than happy to hear anyone’s correction, for who as much as ourselves would love to know when the next big bumper crop was going to arrive and when to start and end harvest of pine nuts and pinon. This would save us much in expenses, time, and headaches. We are not writing this to criticize other statistics, individual, or company’s, we are just reasoning things out, in the meantime adding information for your education and if you’d like to say, entertainment alike.

On a more positive and informative note, snow packs have continued to increase in the Sierra Mountains and valleys with precipitation looking promising for the upcoming months. Pine nuts and pinon lovers alike, with those of the pinoli and pignoli, can hope for a fruitful harvest this Autumn season of 2011 if condition remain steady and progress with a wet ending summer. Lets hope that heat does not overpower the pine nuts and pinyon in the Northwestern central States and that winds and heat do not raise for the pinon and pinion territories in the Southwest. If excessive heat ends up prolonging itself the snow packs will not last enough to allow the maturing cones and seed to endure the hot conditions (unless further precipitation occurs). Since we are focusing on our harvesting efforts (such as scouting) here in America we will not be providing any forecast for any other countries, like those popular for there pignoli and pinoli. However, I am sure other sources may have information regarding the potential forecast for the Fall season of 2011 in there countries. Perhaps not. Our duty is first to the American people. Besides we are American pine nut and pinon producers, and proud of it. So until next time, when conditions for pine nuts and pinon deem necessary, will we keep you posted with another 2011 harvest forecast. To Top

Comments from around the U.S.A.

Throughout the many years our family has harvested pine nuts in the Sierra Mountain ranges and its neighboring foothills we have met and become acquainted with many people along the way whom have commented us on our outstanding product. Some of these individual or family’s we met in person, others over the phone and many others via email communication. In the following pages we will mention a few of these people and other examples of comments we have received within the United States and some abroad, especially in Canada and a few in Mexico. These comments are placed side by side and are not in any specific order and are all regarding our In Shell and or No Shell Pine Nuts and or as others call them, pinon, pignoli, pinoli and pignolia.

We first begin this by mentioning one of our favorite quotes from San Francisco, California, this gentleman has a small store in which he retails our In Shell Nevada Soft Shell Pine Nuts, a large portion of his customers are from the Asian culture, mostly Chinese, we call him Jim, he says “You offer an amazing price, large sized pine nuts and the best Nevada Soft Shell available on the market! We have not known anyone else who offers such high quality and a reasonable price all at the same time. Your on our list of resources we trust and use the most. Not to mention your product is still very fresh after the New Years Holiday, when our others sources pine nuts are bad by December. WholeSale Pine Nuts, you are number One!”

Francine from Sacramento, California told us “Let me know when you have them available, I’ll be the first to place my order in! You can count on that”. Seth in Los Angeles county, CA informed us that “While visiting my home town in Ely, Nevada this last week, I found out that the Great Basin looks quite promising to produce a satisfying harvest for the locals and perhaps you guys might want to take a look around there.” Phillip in the west of San Diego county, CA asked us to “Please save me a few pounds in the next harvest, this year we didn’t have means to buy any, since we didn’t find your company online until you were sold out and we didn’t have any around here in my part of the country. We’re all saved up and will be of the first to respond to your updates in the Autumn.” Shosie near the far east corner of Yuba City, CA said “There has been few sources that I’ve trusted with quality, in particular, those whom I call friends and relatives who harvest and give me the best they can find in their gatherings. Your quality is equal if not at times, superior, not to mention clean and long lasting.” In Redding, CA we find that a lovely family of five “Can’t live without pine nuts! We love those that you offer and buy bulk to receive a discount that is far worth it to our older children whom seem to be more outgoing and hardworking with a handful of their favorite snack. That takes away all their other habits of spending money on junk food!” Near the southeast end of Riverside, CA is a little store whose family owned shop says “We sale more of this produce in the beginning of the season than all our other produce combined! Thanks for your affordable price!” Bakersfield, CA is home to a wide variety of riches when it comes to living with the things produced off of the land we should mention that this small yet prosperous place “Looks forward to a good year where this popular commodity is readily available in stores!”

Salem, Oregon has a unique history that is looked at sometimes quite minute in compared to that found in Massachusetts, however one customer by the name of Jacque states “Pine nuts have always been a part of our family history from as far back in history as we can trace. I admire your hard work in bringing this quality product to my front door!”. Portland, OR finds its roots where Anthony states “We use to trade this variety of nut at the local flee market back fifty or so years ago. Boy, were they popular back than. They were treasured like gold, but really cheap back than.” Eugene, OR had been a place like others where trade was common back a century ago, wherein one of our customers Luis W. said his father “…was thrilled the first time he made an exchange for one Raccoon fur skin for ten pounds of pinon nuts.” Back a few years ago in Medford, Orgeon, Yully D. commented how “They have always been a part of my life and my family continues the tradition of harvesting them in the Northern parts of Nevada every season there out”.

There are many states in the USA that we get orders out of, and out of all of them Washington state is one of the most demanding for pignoli and pignolia nuts. In Seattle, WA Cristine writes “My oh my, your pignoli shelled are the best I have ever tasted! Two thumbs up! My chefs in my kitchen say they can't bake any more, they sell out too fast!” Tacoma, Washington has such a broad diversity of in season produce and as Scott says “Your produce and those available around these parts are of the most demanded, in comparison to the percentage of fans. I mean, they just can’t keep the shelf’s stocked long enough!” Friends and pinon lovers alike in Bellingham, WA agree “As long as there in stock, we trust that your quality will meet anyone’s expectations, no matter the time of year, unlike other suppliers whose quality fade early in the season.”

Throughout the last quarter century as our family has harvested we noticed that families are one of the biggest reasons why individuals harvest, you see, it's more like a tradition. Many of them harvest just for the fun of it, while a small percentage harvest just to have the product themselves. Janice from Rexburg, Idaho informed us that “My family has harvest pine nuts for three generations already, and that’s just because we are from the East coast and weren’t raised here in the Northwest.” From Twin Falls, ID Matt E. called us to tell us that “Our family is not the only one in this city that has picked there own nuts, we have neighbor after neighbor that has harvested for family fun for years.” Steven J. from Boise county, ID let us know that “We drive almost two hundred miles one way, just to gather pine nuts over the weekend when there in season.” “It seems like everyone in Idaho Falls, ID knows about this commodity” wrote Peter S., who just recently moved to Idaho and is now becoming well acquainted with these pinyon nuts. From Pocatello, ID Justine submitted her comment on how much her family and friends crave this snack in and out of season, “We’ve been having withdrawal symptoms since we finished our last batch in April and now its already August, I’m so excited for this upcoming harvest.”

Its been a while since Judy T. was in Elko, Nevada, but she still remembers when she and her little brother would go with her parents when school let out, “We went to a nearby state park for a few days every season where we gathered pinyon until is was near dark. Those nights we roasted pine nuts and watched a family movie.” Kyle from Winnemucca, NV couldn’t wait for the first weekend after the first freeze, “My entire family, all seven of us, along with tons of relatives would drive south to the mountain ranges some eighty miles or so to pick on tribal property where we camped out for the weekend!” Cindy from Battle Mountain, NV teasingly remarked “Oh my, when I saw that pine nut sales person on the street, I could of kissed him, I was so happy, I hadn‘t seen them around in years!” “They were incredible! The quality, taste and cleanness.”, wrote Joe in Reno, NV.

There are also others who prefer not to harvest because of a lack of time, like Hillary from Carson City, NV. Others like Jillian W. East of Clark county in Las Vegas, Nevada say “It is cheaper to buy online than at the stores, as well as rather than going and picking them ourselves.” Katie in Mesquite, NV agrees likewise mentioning that “Fuel prices have gone up through the roof, its cheaper to buy bulk; I mean, we eat a lot anyways!”

Brigham City, Utah is home of some of the most prominent Utahans in the state and they are well familiar with pine nuts and there importance to the cultures around them. Salt Lake City county, UT contains one of the largest markets for this great tasting In Shell product. We receive many orders and comments from Provo, UT and Cedar City, UT, one we like a lot is form Sheryl H. “I love it, no matter where I’m at in my country I can count on you to deliver fast and reliable, straight to my door.” Andy from St. George, UT told us he personally favors getting his “Unshelled pine nuts from WholeSale Pine Nuts.com!” Steven, central in Spanish Fork, Utah wants everyone to know “Don’t waste your time with other online sites. These guys have the best in everything, price and quality and not to mention free shipping!” We have received a number of letters from very satisfied customers from Kanab, UT and San Juan county in Blanding, Utah who agree that “There’s no place like home, and these people sure know how to treat ya just like your there. Their roasted product is outstanding, just like home baked and perfect for any enjoyable family gathering or occasion. It beats popcorn at the movies”.

Have you ever been through Flagstaff, Arizona? Ever wonder about the heritage as you drove by the antique shops and down town streets? I’m certain you've tried a bit of their food as well. But have to tried there pinon nuts? Well, I’m sure you’ve seen them sold throughout the streets in their season. I think everyone has. “Tucson, AZ is practically the same.”, says Anthony Q., who has been a resident for over two decades, “You can’t turn around the main street corner in November without seeing a sign. I personally anticipate the first sign at the beginning of the season.” Tiffany from Phoenix, AZ stated, “I grew up being told the fastest and best way to get my pinon was by driving down old main street in town, but that was when I lived in Tuba City, AZ. Here in Phoenix, you can find them at almost any local grocery store.” Yuma, AZ has the reputation of offering pine nuts long past the season. This is thought to be due to the Native heritage it contains. Without a doubt, many agree. Prescott, AZ is similar wherein heritage runs through the veins and culture of the locals. Of course, a large majority of Arizonan’s know that heritage is an important aspect in their daily life.

There's a big thing about Texas and its not just its size. Cuisine is more of a celebration, due to the large diversity, especially in and at family run kitchens. Pignoli and pinon are no different to many of these families than salt and pepper. Jill from Potter-Randall county in Amarillo, Texas called us and told us “My little Asian cuisine kitchen brings in twenty-five percent of customers who demand pignoli in there meal and this is with prices being quite high.” Midland, TX, with its wealth and fancy dishes insists that not a day should go by without them having there specialty foods, pinoli being a large part of that. Gabby in Dallas county, TX, who operates a family Mexican restaurants says that “Nothing beats a well steamed tamale with pinon.” Around Wichita Falls, TX is a chain of small drive-thru Mexican restaurants that “Sells more tamales with pinon, than the traditional tamales with chicken or carne de res.” Benito from El Paso county, TX wants you to know “Visit Carino’s and try there Chicken Picatta with Pesto, you won’t go wrong!” Travis county in Austin, TX is another place where Pesto sauce is renown for its amazing addition to flavor in most any dish. Renee from San Antonio, TX added to our comments by saying that “Pignoli is just as important to my dishes as the menu is in offering the dish to my customers.” Hyrum Z. who is a resident of Harris county in Houston, TX just a thought to mention “Italian dishes are amazing! Now toss pinon into that dish and you have a masterpiece.”

There are many states in the U.S. who may appear not to be quite familiar with this particular variety of nut, however, it is proven otherwise, and in large part because cuisine and culture has spread so widely throughout the country. Baton Rouge, Louisiana happens to be one of those cities that many would least expect to find someone who knows much about pine nuts or pinon, however a resident of the town by the name of Evan Y. commented “I’ve lived hear for a fifteen years and don’t know too many people that haven’t tried and loved those things. Ordering them online is so convenient now that I’d think myself crazy not to do so.” Adam of Jefferson and Orleans Parish county in New Orleans, LA sent in an emails saying “My family’s hooked on pine nuts, my relatives are hooked, my friends are hooked, shucks even all my neighbors are hooked!” Stephany from New Orleans, Louisiana said “If I ain’t got my pignoli for my salad, I ain’t making no salad!”

Queen Z., who lives in Pulaski county in Little Rock, Arkansas feels the need to “Jump for joy when I first hear that there in the stores! Now I order online because Its cheaper with better quality. We don’t get much pine nuts in these parts!” Illeana from Fayetteville, AR yelled across the street when she heard that they were serving pine nuts in the dishes at a nearby restaurant “We’re eating out tonight girls!” El Dorado, Arkansas may not be so widely known, but what we know for sure is that local Jonie R. says “This town may of not been named after gold, but if it had pine nuts as a natural resource, the name would stick Real good!”

Even in the bountiful lands where water flows afar and plentiful year round, we still get comments like this one from Hinds and Rankin county Jackson, Mississippi “If only we had pine trees like those in New Mexico, than I could fully say that our water can grow the best tasting nut product I’ve ever tried, and trust me, I‘ve tried them All!” George N. from Tupela, MS felt the same when she tried this rich flavored variety of nut from New Mexico called pinon when she exclaimed “You don’t say! This is the best tasting thing I’ve ever tried, can you buy these things shelled?” Over in Greenville, MS Francis P. wrote stating that “Out of all the variety of nuts I’ve tried, when it comes to price, size, taste, and ease of eating raw and fresh, the pine nuts in Nevada prove the best, leaving a flavors in my taste buds long after I‘ve swallowed them.”

During different times in different seasons we have seen how this worldwide commodity has been growing in popularity throughout the globe. As the market begins to grow in demand for diverse products, we see that pinon are being offered a bit more away than they were when they were offered just locally. Birmingham, Alabama is one of those places, we believe, that has seen some recent rapid growth and inclination in sales for the pinoli used in Italian Cuisine. William from Montgomery, AL called us to notify us on this change when visiting Birmingham this last March. Dothan, AL formally was different on this notion, however Ulises E. tells us otherwise. Yolanda from Mobile, Alabama taught her kids that pine nuts were healthy for them and that the only reason why they couldn’t eat so much was because they were pricy last year due to scarcity.

The average Floridian appears to have a great taste when it comes to leisure and quality of life style. It is understood that many of them have traveled the world and that of those many a large percentage fancy the rich foods from around the world. The pignoli is used in cuisine from almost every prominent country, which, to say the least, whose average dish is quite pricy, and not just for its flavor, but for its difficulty to harvest. From Pensacola, Florida Andrew P. posted that our prices were “The lowest anywhere he had seen throughout the season. By the time I had found you guys I would of save about $130, had I known about you guys sooner.” Walter in south Hillsborough county of Tampa, FL wrote to tell us, “I can’t believe you’d sell this stuff so cheap, when your competitors have it for fifty to one hundred percent the price.” Brenda C. by Fort Lauderdale, FL happily remarked “This is the only way I’ll ever buy my pinoli!”, when commenting about our website. Emma in Leon county of Tallahassee, Florida couldn’t believe the fact that we still offered fresh product after the New Years holiday, all it took was a small order and she was convinced for life. No one else offers a guarantee like us. Low by the coast in Volusia county of Daytona Beach, FL Estrella O., commented that our company was “One whose self esteem and reputation keeps its customers going back for more. No matter the situation, you are extremely courteous and considerate towards all your customers.” Avery west in Panama City questioned whether or not our product was the best she’d every purchased or “Whether they are the best that ever existed!” Neil E., who lives in Miami, Florida says that ever since his retirement he had always “Kept a stash of pine nuts in storage, now I buy them bulk and cheaper and have plenty, even if the previous year is more scarce.” Stewart B. whose resides in Jacksonville, FL said “I have never tasted pinon so bursting with flavor, as I have in every single order I’ve made.”

Bill from Chatham county in Savannah, Georgia was jubilated when she won her free pound of pine nuts last years in our mailing list giveaway, she told us, “I never thought I could get so happy with a free pound of pine nuts!” From Cobb and Fulton county in Atlanta, GA Allen U. called us to tell us how he had received his free pinon and that he was so excited to tell his family, and than realized that they would want some as well so went ahead and ordered an additional eight pounds. ”Demi R., a local in west Rome, Georgia left this in a voicemail for our customer service department, “ I just ordered twelve pounds after I ate up all my free pine nuts in just one evening. Keep bringing this great product to the market and I’ll always be back for another round.”

Our company has received much notice for our clean products, whose quality is second to none. Gill, living in Charleston, South Carolina told one of our customer representatives that “Its impossible to have such a clean product without any additives or excessive moisture exposure!” We replied, “That’s what our competitors think, or what they want you to think!” Dean from York county in Rock Hill, SC exclaimed “My mind is boggled at the cleanliness of your pinon. I haven ‘t quite seen anything to match it!” Virginia from Anderson, South Carolina smiled when we told her “It’s a secret! But its proven!”

In Wake county in Raleigh, North Carolina, Amy S. concurred with the fact that our quality was tough to beat, saying “Good luck to your competition!” Tanner from New Hanover county in Wilmington, NC tossed in a pointer regarding our recipe for cooking our products “Keep it the same and everyone will stay hooked!” Brian, living in Hickory, NC asked us to “Keep them coming, don’t stop harvesting, we need more!” Gregory east in Greensboro, NC wished we, “Didn’t have such cheap prices! Than when my customers ask me where I got them from, I wouldn’t be so hesitant to tell them! Well, I guess I still make my share!” Nelly, living south in Mecklenburg county in Charlotte, North Carolina said, “I’ve been a customer for three years now and will be a customer for three more years and three more after that, as long as your quality never diminishes!”

High in the mountain tops in other states can be found many other species of pine trees. However they do not produce big or thick enough seeds that are edible or worthwhile in harvesting; this doesn’t even include the height of the tree, some being from 45 to 85 feet up, that’s fifteen to fifty feet taller than the Nevada pinyon pine. Albert from Nashville-Davidson county of Nashville, Tennessee says “Golly, if we had pine nuts like those in Nevada I’d climb a hundred footer to pick them cones, but the ones over here are smaller than sunflower seeds!” Xucolo, of Knox county in Knoxville, TN wrote “Our trees are beautiful, but the thought of harvesting something so high and narrow, huh, I would pay almost any price, to not do that!” East in Shelby county in Memphis, TN Susan writes “There’s no place like home. I love Nevada for its mountain ranges and plentiful forest and I love Tennessee for the same reason. I just miss my pine nuts!” Young W. from Montgomery county of Clarksville, TN commented how “The forests are incredible, I love that thought that your company can harvest naturally and bring such an outstanding product to the market. Especially here in my home town!” Darrol west of Madison county in Jackson, TN left his posting stating “The Pinyon Pine is an amazing productive species of trees, no wonder Nevada treasures and acknowledges it by making it apart of their state pride!” Sherry from Kingsport, TN left her voicemail in a jolly manner “I don’t know what I’d do without you guys. My little store receives customers all the time commenting about the new pignolia we have in stock. The first and only American shelled pignoli! I just can’t believe it hasn’t been done before! Everyone loves them!”

Cinthia E. in Lexington-Fayette county in Lexington, Kentucky once told a staff member “Why aren’t there pine nuts in our trees?” Our staff replied “Beats me, you probably haven’t checked close enough!” Cinthia replied, “Well those trees are so far way up there and the cones are huge though! The seeds inside just look like a skeleton of old seed.” It was told to her that the different variety was not edible for us humans, but that the seed was there and in ripe season was sufficient to be planted and grow a tree in proper conditions. Ace from Louisville Jefferson county in Louisville, Kentucky informed us that “Our trees here in this part of the country must have a different purpose, than those in Utah and the other states!” Jeffery of Warren county in Bowling Green, KY told us that he wanted to “Go and try harvesting pinon or pinyon and see if it was really as tough as others picture it out to be!” We immediately made him an offer he couldn’t resist. That summer he tried it out for three days during a trip with his relatives from Utah and said “I’ll be back next year! The harvest was too short to get much, but the experience was one to share with all those back in Kentucky who think pine nuts prices are too high!” He laughed on and off while he told us his story!

Even in the more drier states we still get comments about prices being fair. For example, Randy in Oklahoma City, OK states “Heck, I’ve gathered theses things before and I’ll tell ya, with the fact that I love them, I’d pay your low prices and even the higher prices for them, so that I don’t have to go through the whole mess!” Freddy in Tulsa, OK posted online that “We are so thankful that the Nevada Soft Shell has maintained such low price, when every other popular food and commodity has skyrocketed! Just a tank of gas for my sister in Utah to go pick cost her at least a hundred dollars and she still had to harvest! Not to mention the scarcity last year!” Jack D. from Guymon, Oklahoma told us he would “Never try harvesting my own pinon again, unless there was no where else to get them! I picked only three pounds of good ones in eight hours. We ran into a bunch of hollow ones!”

Not every year do we have a sufficient harvest to make worthwhile our efforts. Elfred from Dona Ana county in Las Cruces, New Mexico told us one year that, “I was stunned when I saw you guys had pinon! We didn’t see any on the trees in all the favorite places we normally go to! It had been four years since we had a family harvest here in New Mexico.” Valerie H., who lives in Santa Fe county, NM told us recently that she was willing to “Pay $20 dollars a pound for the piñon, if she could find that anywhere. Some days I’d even pay $25.” Simon from Deming, NM commented that he “Never cared what the price was! I knew anyone selling them deserved whatever they asked for! I for one won’t complain! You ever try harvesting them things!” Forest E. in Silver City, NM told his elderly mother “It doesn’t matter how much I paid for them! Enjoy them! Its over a two hundred mile drive to pick them myself. Trust me its worth paying the bucks! Especially for you Ma’!” Elsie from Otero county in Alamogordo, NM asked us if we would consider giving her a discount if she bought ten pounds of pinon. When we told her that we’d take off two dollars a pound she immediately said, “I’ll take twenty pounds than!” Lolo in Carlsbad, New Mexico said “Pinon are a part of my winter, if I can’t find them fresh, I’ll take the ones from last year! If I can’t find those, than I’ll take the ones from two seasons back! But I got to have them!” McKinley county of Gallup, NM has appeared to be one of those smaller cities that always has pinon, no matter how old they are, they always sale! Owen Z. from Ruidoso, NM says “When they didn’t have any pinon over here, I had my relatives throughout the state seek them out for me! So my mother in Gallup sent me some the very next Monday, just in time for our community campout!”

Back in central eastern St Louis, Missouri, Keisha W. writes regarding scarcity in the recent years, “If my family doesn’t get there supply for the year, we don’t know what were going to do!” Gary from Springfield, MO pleaded “We don’t care the price, just provide us pinon this year! It doesn’t matter if there from two seasons ago!” Brandon in Tuscola and Van Buren county in Columbia, Missouri called us to tell us “We, the people, who grew up with pine nuts, need them, but just don’t get to greedy. We know you won’t but others have!”

Quinton S. who lives around east Hamilton and Marion county in Indianapolis, Indiana noted that, “Your prices are so cheap, I don’t know how you even break even!” Benjamin I. from Monroe county in Bloomington, IN says “Whose ever picked before? I know if you had you’d pay almost double the price! Myself, I’d easily pay double in a scarce year like this one!” Barbara from Fort Wayne, IN commented “Your prices don't compare, neither does your quality, I still don’t get why others buy elsewhere, especially with your reputation for customer care and customer satisfaction at such a high priority to your family business.” Eldon L., originally from Provo, UT, whose lived in Tippecanoe county in Lafayette, Indiana for over twelve years called in to say, “When I was a kid pine nuts were practically free, but with all the high prices and inflation what can we expect from any person or company trying to make an honest living! I don’t know how you can afford such low prices. But I’m taking this opportunity and will continue to do so. Thanks WholeSale Pine Nuts!” Allie from Terre Haute, MO said, “There’s been a small harvest these last few years, but why have prices stayed the same. Good for me, but I don’t know how your company does it! My retail outlets sales them for thirty percent up costs and people still buy them like crazy!” Camery E. from Gary, Indiana told us she didn’t mind “Paying the shipping! I don’t see how you can offer it for free and still make revenue!”

Harvard from Springfield, Illinois stated mentioned, “We are happier than you could imagine after receiving your product! It took only three days with free shipping! They taste Great!” Brianna in Peoria, IL noted that “Your service was so fast and costs us nothing that we’ll be ordering again from you soon!” Ephraim H. west of Quincy, IL elaborated about our customer service “In all my years of ordering online I’d never had a more pleasant talk with a customer service representative. They even through in an extra free pound, when my package didn’t show up because the post office lost the package! What kind of company takes that loss and still gives more to the customer! An ‘Excellent’ one for sure!” Doran W from Chicago, Illinois writes “Free shipping and the lowest price anywhere I’ve seen. Nothing beats that! Oh wait, than top that with their quality! Huh, now that’s an Incredible company!”

Fiona from Grand Rapids, Michigan helped us expand our pignoli sales a bit and told us she looked forward to a “Long business relationship with you!” Allerd from Detroit, MI received his order just in the nick-of-time for Thanksgiving and wrote that he would love another shipment in before Christmas! Franklin O. from Alpena, Michigan wanted our staff to know how much he “Appreciated their patience when I ordered the wrong product on accident and needed to return the shipment, which was paid for by your company!”

Every now and than we get one of those customers that has not had a pine nut or pinon or pignoli in over a decade. These stories are ones that fascinate all pine nut addicts and fans alike. Roger from Lucas and Wood county in Toledo, Ohio writes, “What in the world was I thinking! I can’t believe how it slipped my mind that these things are so darn good! Yesterday was the first day in over twenty years since I’d eaten a pine nut! I’m never going a season without them at all costs! Thanks!” Josephina in Cuyahoga and Pawnee county in Cleveland, OH questioned us regarding our American shelled pignoli, “Why is it that no one else has done this! I haven’t had a no shell pine nut taste this delicious in many years! It brings back memories when we would crack them as little kids and have contest to see who could shell them the fastest!” Olly from Columbus, Ohio commented “It's been almost seventeen years since I gathered these things with my family in Utah and that was the last time I had eaten one! We had no means to get them over here in this direction until we ran into them online after a family friend sent your companies website to our email!” Everret K. from Clermont and Hamilton county in Cincinnati, OH exclaimed “Yeppi!

The Mediterranean coast is most use to the pinoli and pignoli from Italy as well as the Portuguese variety. As our company expands its reach to the European and Asian cuisine communities, we feel that our rich flavored products will become one of the more notable foreign produce to those chefs and cooks of family members alike. From the little country island of Cyprus, Zarita writes “Your product is of the best in its natural form and will likely be known by most people from our parts in the next decade! I hope so, because the more we have in this parts the better! I know your prices are almost a third of what we get them for!”

The Siberian and Russian pine nuts are one comparable to the New Mexico pinon and taste rather good and rich in flavor. From Serbia, Jasna writes “I’ve been eating the Siberian pine nuts from Russia and China my whole life. They have a rich taste and so does the Southwestern American variety! Can’t wait to try more.” Hatixhe from Siberia wrote “There’s no need to acquire a different taste, both varieties taste practically identical.” From Moscow, Russia Anya K. commented “Your rich sweet tasting pignoli are one of the best I can find anywhere in the worldwide market! They add so much sweetness to my baking that when my customers asked me what’s different in them, I told them, ‘American Pignoli!’”

Samvel from Armenia writes “Who ever thought that my famous pasta recipe could be improved? Looks like my new secret ingredient is one that will be giving you a bit more business!” Ful-Miah of Bangladesh says “What a surprise it was to me to try your pinoli, I’m a big fan! I need more!” Kolab from Cambodia writes “There a sensation over here! My little kitchen in the town already has a name for your pignoli nuts, I need to get more now!” Chaturi from Sri Lanka sent in a comment stating “Love the flavor! A perfect snack!“

Habid from Al Taif, Saudi Arabia says “The first bite was fresh, juicy and sweet! Every bite afterwards was the same. There amazing!” Temani from Yemen writes “How can something as small as a pinyon nut taste so rich! They’re beyond great!” Tania who use to live in Jordan around the Mediterranean left a message saying “It’s the new taste in my family. We can’t get enough of them!” Rayan from Lebanon writes “Your lucky you can eat all you want! We have a shortage and can barely afford the price. However, we eat sparingly and this is our new snack! A snack that is difficult to let go!” Alinah from Malaysia says “We need to be ready with a new shipment, these are going fast!”

Dylan from Jakarta Singapore writes “Ever since we received our shipment we have been unable to resist a bite or three every now and than. Our supply is running low. This tasty treat is Deeliciioouuuss! Thanks!” Prmana from Indonesia says, “We already placed another order and will be out of our last one in a few days!” Janice from the Philippines writes “Every meal meets with a handful of pine nuts! Irresistible” Jennifer from Vietnam says, “My friends are going crazy over these! We are looking forward picking them this Autumn in the ranges near Reno, NV.” Chiewhwa from Taiwan says “They add more flavor to my cooking than I ever thought possible!” Yanopa from Papua New Guinea quoted her little boy when he said, “Ma’ can I have more pinon! Pleeeease!”

Our European customers have been used to the Italian, Portuguese and Chinese pignoli that have flooded there market in the last fifteen years. When we began offering them from America just over a year and a half ago we received a community full of comments, feedback, suggestions and compliments throughout those territories and now we’d like to share a bit of them.

From Austria, Lena wrote “My pesto will never be the same! Its improved with the new variety you offer. Thanks! “ Anton from Belgium writes “So far not a single bitter taste. I’m a life time customers as long as this remains the case.” Simona from Bulgaria wrote, “The texture from the pinon is so crunchy when roasted that I no longer eat all those other nuts, now I only eat pine nuts!” Mateo from Croatia says, “Shocking! The toasted variety are cooked to Perfection!” Natálie from Czech Republic writes, “My kids have a new favorite treat!” Emil from Denmark “Can’t stop eating them, there so tasty!” Finland’s Leevi V. commented “What ever went wrong!

Wow, I just tasted the best pesto with your ingredients!” Lukas from Munich, Germany writes “Simply, WOW!” Lili from Hungary commented “My boyfriend thinks I’m the best cook in the world! All I did was substitute pine nut varieties and used the ones I received from your company!” Einar from Iceland commented that, “My family has never tasted a better pesto than the ones we made with your pinoli!”

Giorgia from Italy wrote to tell us that he heard about our company from a friend in Texas and “Had to get a sample for myself! On its first arrival I opened up the bag and tried the first kernel that fell in my hand. From the first, to the very last, a week later, every bite was scrumptious and never once did I ever not crave them as with other varieties that you get enough of them and the taste becomes dull after a while!” Chole from Ireland noted that “Only once had I bought an American product and that was because they were pine nuts!”

I hope that if it’s frozen that the flavor isn’t too changed! Your pignoli make the world of a difference.” In Portugal our fan Catarina posted on her blog that she just “Made the best pesto dish out of American no shell pine nuts!” In Romania Stefan says “I tried them without making a fancy pasta, just plain noodles and tomatoes and the flavor is amazing!”

Pasta with noodles is not the only way to make a good crunchy tasting European and Asian meal! Helena from Slovakia says “Pine nuts with bacon and avocado is something I just recently added to my list of recipes to cook for a quick breakfast! Eat the nuts raw or roasted! Taste yummy for a fast meal!” Sergio from Madrid, Spain thanks us for “The low prices. Now I can enjoy more of my favorite snack and added ingredient for my standard dish.” Andrej from Slovenia says “Pasta never tasted better!” Viktor from Sweden writes “The best addition to any Italian cuisine!” Simon from Switzerland wrote “Never a boring meal. Every chew brings a rich flavor!” Ulyana from the Ukraine wrote “I just got a simple pesto recipe off of the internet and mixed it with some of your American pignoli nuts and everyone thought I’d been studying cuisine for years!” Daniel from The United Kingdom in Great Britain says “This ingredient was originally eaten by royalty, but has for over a century made itself a part of the leisure in modern society’s common fancy dish!” Isabella from Rome, Vatican City writes “I’m Thankful for the free sample! Its great to know that there are other options for pinoli out there. Prices have skyrocketed lately and we could use a little more competition on the market!”

Up in Northern Africa we have had a bit of compliments regarding our customer services and products. Abeo from Morocco wrote, “There was a bit of difficulty when my sister re-shipped her order to my address in my local town, your service department helped me out a lot! it’s a good thing the in shell pine nuts last so long and fresh.

We have not been disappointed in a single kernel.” Mandisa of Ethiopia writes, “Your pignoli adds an incredible taste to my families traditional cuisine and a peculiar texture that makes me want to take another bite, one after the other!”

Amelia from Melbourne, Australia commented on the unique texture of our pinon, “They are creamy and more round than other pine nuts I’ve tried. The shelled ones are a real treat to savor!” Xavier from Sydney, AU says, “I was hoping the pine nuts would be bitter-free, well, what I got was even better, bitter-free and a sweet taste to make your mouth-water all over again!” Thomas of Queensland, Australia writes, “How is it that such a small little speck can contain so much rich flavor? I carry a pocketful around with me throughout the day!” Ethan of Hastings, New Zealand writes, “What ever happened to the days when we had to shell our own by hand? Well, either way, with this company you get Real Fresh pine nuts all the time, shelled or unshelled!”

Our customers from the Southern American countries also like to toss in there comments. Beatriz from Rio De Janeiro, Brazil says “I didn’t like the pine nuts when I tried them in the states! But once I ordered them on accident from your business, instead of the pinon, I was told to roast them and now they taste GOOD! Real Good!” Emiliano from Chihuahua City, Chihuahua, Mexico wrote, “Your pinon are excellent quality and so much cheaper than any other ones I’ve ever heard off. Thanks for your products!” Mariana from Mexico City, Mexico writes, “Once I roasted the pine nuts in the oven the wealth of flavor was so abundant, one would never imagine that something could go from tasting so good to so far beyond good! Thanks! Best pinon nuts ever!”

Well that conclude our comments from around the globe. These are just a few examples of comments that we sorted through to show you the diversity of our American pine nuts in other cultures cuisine and how little by little people from around the globe are starting to hear about our pine nuts, pignoli, pinoli, pinon, pinyon offered, both shelled (no shell) and In the shell. We hope you will give our pine nut varieties a try for yourselves and realize that we do indeed do our best to meet all our customers pine nuts and pinon expectations! To Top

Summer Arriving: 2011 Forecast Update for Nevada Soft Shell Pine Nuts and New Mexico Hard Shell Piñon Nuts

In continuation of our Nevada Jumbo Soft Shell pine nuts and the New Mexico Hard Shell Pinon Nuts forecast updates we are pleased to inform all our visitors to our site that the Nevada Jumbo pine nuts perhaps has had the best amount of precipitation of the last eight months, surpassing all of our expectation in regards to the all natural environment to continue to develop its fruit to maturity. Likewise, the temperature has been very adequate in as much that the trees may thus have health and vigor to continue throughout the rest of the Spring and into the summer. With one more reasonable heavy thunder storm in the early summer throughout the mountain ranges of Nevada, California and Utah we can say that we will of had the perfect conditions of temperature and humidity to continue to nourish the trees and there fruit for a very prosperous production of pinyon pine nuts this Fall.

We are sadden to inform you that with New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Texas and part of Utah, being in a different climate and precipitation below average and in a state of drought in many areas, we foresee and expect much of the fruit of the Southwestern Hard Shell pinon nuts to begin to be aborted or dry up and wither away in many locations. With this said, we anticipate a below average pinon nut harvest this season of 2011, if not, or perhaps, very few, if any at all. Lets not disregard the many plagues that tend to invade the forests and their fruit in early summer and heavily damage bumper crops, if not destroy them completely in many areas. This is due to the fact of not having adequate temperatures, precipitation and humidity in the winters, falls, springs and summers.

When it comes to forecasting, it is only an assessment based on knowledge of past history, current temperature condition, amount of precipitation and hoping for a good plentiful outcome. However, anything and everything can change in a minutes notice due to many factors in the unpredictable world we live in.

Our ancestors could predict with great accuracy, many things, by simply observing the sky in the evening, the moon cycles, the eclipses, the stars, the wind patterns, animal conduct and behaviors, low and high temperatures, storm conditions and most of all by using the perception deep within their souls or through spiritual manifestations. It is unfortunate that much of this has been lost to many people due to the many scientific advances that many people claim to be more precise and have chosen above other sources of insight rather than those that have proven themselves more accurate time after time.

We will post monthly updates informing you on news pertaining to the changes we observe concerning the West and Northwest. We will also eventually post locations where you can gather your very own personal Jumbo Soft Shell Pine Nuts, which will be very helpful to those of you who wish to harvest close to your homes at more convenient locations. As always, check back soon for more updates, until than, take care and keep safe! To Top

2011 Harvest - Disastrous Plagues Hit Nevada Soft Shell and Pine Cones

          Plagued Pinyon Tree Upclose

                          View Larger Image

Disastrous environmental conditions and plagues have destroyed large harvest areas of Nevada and have caused the harvest to wither up and perish in large quantities in many areas. As our picture illustrates, one good cone left among dozens perished bringing down the high anticipated bumper crop in the great state of Nevada, from far above average harvest for 2011 to far below average. This will cause a price increase in the local and national market. Due to the fact that when you have large accessible harvest areas completely destroyed by the environment and plagues, it requires more labor and higher resources to access other areas. Therefore by this means, bringing a higher price to the consumer. We had anticipated, a far above average pine nut harvest for 2011. It is unfortunate as we stated in previous articles, however lets not disregards plagues, in this case plagues and environmental conditions were the main factor in destroying millions of acres of healthy in-mature still developing pinyon pine nuts to nothing. There is still an amount to harvest which will be made available to the public, but it is unfortunate that the higher cost will have to be passed onto you. This disastrous condition to the pinyon pine nut production is not due to lack of precipitation since the great state of Nevada had in most areas, far above average precipitation, but is due to other environmental conditions wherein plagues developed rapidly destroying large amounts of production in short time. We will post more information as the time approaches for our product to become available to market. To Top

Customer Comment

Thanks Mike,

I can't wait to get some fresh pinions as my former supplier's trees were decimated by beetles and drought. My own supply has been exhausted for over a week and I hope to be able to work with you in the future. I grew up in the 4 corners area, near Teec Nos Pos, and have eaten pinions for over 50 years. The trees around where I grew up were over 400 years old and produced some of the best and largest pinions I had ever seen. Most of those trees have been gone for some time now and the ones that are left are struggling to survive. Lets hope for some help from Mother Earth to restore to pinion back to a healthy saturation.

Kindly,

EW

As of today things are looking very positive for a good bumper harvest for the fall of 2012. With a cold winter and a good amount of snow packs thus far, the conditions for an optimal environment is given way for the continuation of the pinyon pine forest to yield forth a healthy bumper crop of pinyon pine nuts. We still have eight months to go and there are many factors needed to be taken into consideration from now until than as stated on our previous articles to fill in the complete eighteen month production cycle for the pine nuts in the state of Nevada. We will continue to gather information in the next six months and continue to inform all of you in a bi-monthly article on our website.

American Shelled Pine Nuts - Upcoming 2012 Season and Progress etc.

Good Morning,

We like to inform all our customers and visitors that as of today, we, WholeSale Pine Nuts .com, are the only company in the world to offer delicious “All American Grown Shelled (no shell) Nevada Pine Nuts”; which we take great pride and joy in. On another pleasing note, for this current year of 2012, we are the only internet company offering “American New Mexico Hard Shell Piñon Nuts” at a reasonable market price, all our competitors whom have them available are selling them very expensive or simply don't have them at all. We understand the quality is poor this season and quantity scare due to a lack of precipitation in the mountains of the southwest, especially in the New Mexico and Arizona regions, however, regardless, we would like to offer them to you at this most reasonable price due to your demands.

WholeSale Pine Nuts .com is also pleased to announce that we still have "Nevada Soft Shell Pine Nuts" available in which we take great pride to inform everyone, that again, as of today, we are the only company in the world to offer this great product without ANY "added ingredients" of ANY kind, as all of our competitors, as of today, pretend to clean them by using cooking oil, which only polishes them making them look bright and attractive, but indeed, they are just as dirty; the oil just gives them the appearance of them looking clean (in fact dirtying them even more). When you consume pine nuts or piñon this way it leaves a lot of unclean residue on your hands.

On a further note, we would like to mention that we have received many pleasant and inspiring reviews and comments regarding our "American Shelled Pine Nuts" from customers whom we sent their pine nuts through mail order. Those whom have sampled our "American Shelled Pine Nuts" quote saying that our product is, “Amazing”, “Remarkably flavored”, and “Beyond anything we (they) have ever experienced in taste of any pine nut of any variety in the world“. We are pleased to inform all our customers and visitors that through hard work over the last four years, we have developed techniques to bring to you this product in an All Natural, Unadulterated in any way, forest fresh from the mountains of Nevada, straight to you. We believe we have discovered an amazing trade secret that would take other competitors years to catch up. This trade secret provides us the confidence to guaranty that our shelled pine nuts do not leave you with any pine-mouth, bitter-mouth, or any unpleasant after-flavor or after-taste of the like that has been experienced by many consumers from imported foreign shelled pine nuts. Our "American Shelled (no shell) Pine Nuts" are shelled fresh and are very limited for the year. As always, this is a perishable product and we market it on a first-come, first-serve basis, so order them while they last. Remember, these are “AMERICAN Shelled Pine Nuts”. You can preserve them as long as they remain frozen in your freezer (pretty much indefinitely).

Well, now a little about the prospect of our upcoming 2012 harvest. Let us start off by, informing you that New Mexico and Nevada are being depleted of snow packs below average this winter. Up to now, unless Mother-Nature reacts and gives us a fair amount of snow packs before the winter ends, we anticipate much drought (in comparison to our previous wet seasons in recent years) and the trees to begin to abort its fruit by late spring; as we have seen in years past during similar climate patterns. Of course, this is just an assumption of our experience and things can change from one day to another. As always let us not disregard plagues and other possible environmental conditions throughout this current cycle of the maturity of the “Nevada Soft Shell Pinyon Pine Cone” and the “Southwest Hard Shell Piñon Pine Cone”. Well, customers, visitors and pine nut, pinoli nut, and piñon nut fans alike, let us pray and hope for the best that God is willing to give us this upcoming 2012 seasons harvest. We will continue to keep you posted. Check back soon and have an Incredible and fulfilling New Year! We hope you accomplish all good you wish to do this New Years! To Top

Update for Upcoming 2012 Nevada Pine Nuts and New Mexico Piñon Harvest

We would like to inform all our readers and customers that the Nevada Pine Nut Harvest as of today, May 27th, 2012 is coming along on schedule. It looks to be a good harvest next fall. However, as in past years let us not forget that many things can occur in the upcoming four (4) months that can distort a good product harvest due to environmental conditions and plagues. All we can do is pray for the best to occur in regards to the upcoming harvest.

The amount of precipitation has been somewhat below average for this time of year, but, still sufficient for a good harvest to occur. We are hoping for a good amount of precipitation in the mountains in the state of Nevada. Such environmental conditions that will not favor the plagues that have destroyed thousands of bumper crops in the past decade.

In regards to the New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, Utah and Texas Hard Shell Piñon Nut: there are some areas that are looking very promising for a very reasonable crop that is being developed. All we can hope for is favorable environmental conditions that will allow them to develop a reasonable harvest for the upcoming 2012 harvest. The next three months are the most critical of all in the development of the fruit of the pinyon pine trees in these great states of the west and southwest. These next three months will determine if this wonderful crop of pine nuts and piñon nuts become healthy and productive or if trees will abort there fruit due to a lack of precipitation or if plagues will come in and devour it precious fruit. We have seen this repeated over and over in the last decade unlike anything we have seen between 20 - 30 years ago when it was a rare occurrence. It appears that now-a-days it is more common to occur than not. We say these things using our experience in the many years of harvesting these nuts and knowing these great forests of this great nation of the Untied States of America. There are definitely some changes in our environment that are much more different than there was 20 -30 years ago. Plagues have become very numerous and have wiped out thousands of acres, many times doing so within almost a few short days. The plague factor is one-hundred (100) percent related to environmental conditions. We don’t like to be pessimistic or negative in relation to our business, we just like to quote the facts as we have seen them in the last decades.

It is unfortunate to mention, however, we anticipate the price in Southwest piñon nuts and Nevada pine nuts to be somewhat more expensive as they were last year and as they have been in previous years. This is due to the fact that fuel costs are considerably higher, labor cost will be considerably higher and everything involved in the production of this commodity, and in the market place, will be considerably more expensive.

It is in our common interest as Americans to support and vote for candidates that use a lot of logic and common sense when it comes to economic principles that we use in everyday life to make ends-meat. It is also our small businesses venture, as well as other businesses desire to keep our food supply and all our way of living at a comfortable price for all to afford. If not we shall become as third-world countries and other European countries where people work eight hours a day and pretty much all they can do is buy food for the day. But, let us remember that we all have our free agency and our own judgment to come to our own decision, as the decision of the majority affects us all, good or bad. Therefore, Good Wishes to all our readers and customers! We will keep you updated during the next few months regarding the upcoming harvest To Top

Breif Review of 2012 Harvest and Potential 2013 Harvest

Dear readers and customers, we apologize we have not had time to update our entry here for a while. We have been extremely busy with the harvest for the last many weeks. Gas prices were much higher than the previous year and the unfortunate late summer rains that came into Nevada a month after anticipated devastated the great bumper crop of Nevada Soft Shell Pine Nuts as we have never seen in our life time of 60 years of being accustomed with these forest. Chicken-egg size Pinyon pine cones just withered up and dried away. Plagues were a big factor along with these natural factors causing the shortage this year. Our prices for these reasons have raised slightly higher than in recent years. Taking into consideration that we are still making our pine nuts available to you at a very considerable price, direct from harvester to consumer. As you can see our competitors are somewhat higher in there prices.

We anticipate a very small harvest for the next fall of 2013 for the Nevada Soft Shell Pine Nuts compared to the harvest that took place this (2012) Fall in Nevada. If you are a pine nut lover, it may be in your best interest to purchase what you could consume in the next 18 months and freeze them as mentioned on our freezing instructions page as this way they will stay fresh indefinitely. We thank you for your business and also we wish you the best of holidays this season. Check back soon for more updates as we intend to update our website on a more frequent basis. To Top

2013 Harvest Anticipated - America No Shell (Shelled) Pine Nuts Update

To all our readers,

We would like to wish you a wonderful Merry Christmas and we hope you have a very joyful and safe Holiday season.

The precipitation in many regions where the great products known as “pine nuts” and “piñon nuts” grow appears very promising for the upcoming year of 2013. This is due in part by the continuation of snow packs that play the most important role in the development of the dormant cones. We are referring to the snow packs that are in the trees already for the 2013 fall production of piñon and pine nuts; also known by many people as pignoli nuts when the shell is removed.

It’s unfortunate, that due to the amount of humidity that the Nevada Jumbo Pine Nuts contain, that once shelled or once they have the shell removed and dehydrated, it can lose up to 55% of its original harvested weight. Since this commodity is sold on the marketplace by weight, once you lose 55% of that weight and go through all the labor involved to shell the product (remove the shell), and the dehydration process, not to mention finally packaging and shipping and of course don’t forget the harvesting etc., there’s no way can we compete with Asian or foreign imported prices.

Three years back when there was a shortage (or huge price raise) with the Asian or foreign supplies and the price climbed up to $30 per pound, we became very competitive in the marketplace and undertook the task of shelling (removing the shell of) Nevada Pine Nuts and providing them to many markets in the USA, Canada and other market places of the world. We take great pride in the fact that we were the first US business to offer all American grown pine nuts with “No Shell” or “Shelled Pine Nuts” on a nation-wide front. Some competitors undertook the same task, however, we were the only ones who could make it somewhat affordable during that time.

We look forward, to perhaps in a future date where we could develop better equipment to shell our product more efficiently and with less labor intensity, as well as when there is a bumper crop in our western states, to make this product again to be more competitive with the Chinese, Russian, Korean, and many other Asian and foreign countries. We have the knowledge and the ability to develop a super-shelling machine operation for the Nevada Jumbo Pine Nuts. However, due to the fact that harvesting in the state of Nevada has become somewhat unpredictable and unreliable to rely on a good harvest, and not to mention that more regulation from various government agencies has been making it sensately unreasonable to invest large amounts of money into any visionary production of shelling plants as we see it. We have developed a system that will shell 100% of every seed in a single pass without damaging any seed whatsoever, with the shell removed completely clean. It’s quite unfortunate that due to more plagues, droughts, environmental conditions and government regulations, that are out of the ordinary of nature as we live today, that such an operation to undertake and invest into, most likely on our behalf, will never happen. Therefore, we will continue to offer our great pine nuts in the shell for now, completely All Natural as nature created them in the wild, with no ingredients of any kind. We do not add or take anything from the products that we offer our customers.

Many ask, “Are your pine nuts organic or certified organic piñon nuts?“ Well, you can be the judge of that! We do not offer any certified products on our website. We have contacted the organic certification government agencies in the regions we work in and they have informed us that they cannot certify organic wild crops as “organic” because these products would fall under a different category due to the fact that they are wild crops. Thereby, making it quite complicated to get involved with organic certification of our products at this time. Therefore, one thing we can assure you about our pine nuts and piñon nuts, “You won’t find anything that is a food source more natural than our pine nuts or piñon nuts. We are confident about this because all these wonderful nuts are harvested in very remote and isolated areas of our country. Mostly from public lands and some from private property lands where are found and enforced strict preservation guidelines. Although enforced laws preserve them, nature is the only one that guards and cares after them in there 18 month cycle to complete there maturity, which takes two springs, two summers, one fall and one winter; like nothing else on earth. That’s what makes pine nuts, piñon nuts and pignoli nuts so precious and special. This products natural production is well worth the wait, being so delicious and priceless to many due to there unique way of growing and there great taste and immense nutritious health as an authentic native food source“.
