Looks like things are shaping up for a really good harvest at San Luis Obispo farm in 2010. The trees are beginning to bud and the snow pack in the Sierras is bigger than normal. That means we will have plenty of water come Summer when we really need it. Pistachio trees are peculiar in that they have alternating years of small and large crop years. This year is an “on” year for our farm meaning that the crop should be very large.
Even though our orchard is over thirty years old, the trees are still growing and are producing higher yields. With the good Winter/Spring conditions we’ve had, and the promise of plenty of water throughout the summer, I expect the orchard to produce its best yield ever! That means lots of beautiful, delicious Pistachio nuts for you to enjoy next fall!
