The high desert climate of Southern Utah creates ideal conditions for producing an outstanding quality pistachio that is sweeter and distinctly greener than pistachios grown elsewhere. The climate and latitude in Southern Utah closely emulates the natural environment of the Middle East where pistachio trees originated.
Bryce Thornberg and his family have been growing pistachios in Utah for ten years. They sell their product in roadside stands and to businesses around Utah. Harmons carries these pistachios seasonally in our Produce departments.The Thornberg's pistachio farming operation and production facilities are located in Hurricane, Utah. They farm 20 acres of trees, which adds up to 2,500 individual pistachio trees.
