Flourishing in hot climates, pistachio cultivation originally spread from Iran to the Mediterranean regions in Sicily and Spain. Iran, historically the primary growth area of pistachio trees, is one of the major producers of many pistachio varieties with their own different properties and distinctive flavours. In eastern Sicily, pistachios are grown around Mount Etna and in the Bronte area. They are slightly longer and thinner than the Iranian varieties. Pistachio cultivation is expanding in Spain with plantations in Catalonia and Castilla La Mancha.
