Did you know pistachio trees can produce nuts for over 100 years?
This incredibly hardy tree can survive on less than 200mm of water per year and grow in marginal soils, where most other crops will wither and die. We have partnered with the largest pistachio nursery and operation in Sub-Saharan Africa, focusing on continuous research and development to ensure better yields, a better product, and more eco-friendly practices.
Pistachios are the fourth largest nut traded globally by volume and the largest traded nut by revenue every other year. It is the oldest nut in the world with well-established markets and is in rapidly growing demand. Pistachios have unique climate-growing requirements with only a select few places in the world that can farm pistachios successfully.
From water-wise techniques to job creation, pistachio investments are both profitable and have a greater positive impact.

Karoo Pistachios was established in 2019 as a joint venture between present and historic role-players within the South African pistachio industry.
