Pistachio tree

Gaziantep's old name is just "Antep," which means "pistachio."

 

Southeastern Turkey and Iran supply more than half of the world's pistachioes.

 

On the walk out of Gaziantep this morning I was wondering where they grow all these pistachioes. "Duh," I realized after looking around me, "the trees are all around you."
