Why were pistachios red?


1 Answer

Pistachios are not naturally red. In the past, due to antiquated harvesting methods, nut shells were often left with ugly stains and splotches. Foreign pistachio producers dyed them a bright red color in an effort to hide the stains and make the nuts more appealing to consumers.
