Pistachio yg ku suka


Buhsan. Xde smangat nak study. So, aku pun mengambil pek pistachio. Sambil aku kunyah dan menikmati kemasinan dan rasa yg menyayat hati kacang ni, aku terfikir, apakah nutrition pistachio ni?

Lantas, aku melayari Wikipedia. Tekan pistachio, dan ini yg ku dapat,

The pistachio (Pistacia vera L., Anacardiaceae; sometimes placed in Pistaciaceae) is a small tree up to 10 m tall, native to mountainous regions of Iran, Turkmenistan and western Afghanistan. It has deciduous pinnate leaves 10–20 cm long.

The plants are dioecious, with separate male and female trees. The flowers are apetalous and unisexual, and borne in panicles. The fruit is a drupe, containing an elongated seed (a nut in the culinary sense, but not a true botanical nut) with a hard, whitish shell and a striking kernel which has a mauvish skin and light green flesh, with a definitive flavour.

When the fruit ripens, the husk changes from green to an autumnal yellow/red and the shells split partially open (see photo). This is known as dehiscence, and happens with an audible pop.

Each pistachio nut weighs around 1 gram, [1] and each pistachio tree averages around 50 kg of nuts, or around 50,000, every two years. [2] Pistachios (as part of the pistacia genus) have existed for about 80 million years. [3]

Tu je lah sedikit sebanyak info pasal kacang ni. Tu ar, jgn suke makan je, at least tahu skit apebenda yg kiter makan tu. Aku berkata pada diriku....
