National Pistachio Day

That's right, it's National Pistachio Day and in celebration of this nutty holiday (Haha, I love the pun) Amber brings you a drawing in celebration.

First, here are some fun facts about the pistachio.

California is the major US producer of the pistachio. 

Red or green dye is only added to the nut because the consumers like the coloring - it doesn't affect the flavor. 

According to legend, the pistachio adorned the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.

Pistacho's are related to mango fruit and the spice sumac.

 
Now eat up or Mustachio will get you!
