About Piñon Nuts
The piñon tree is a slow-growing
pine, found in rocky soils at high
elevation (5,500 to 8,000 feet) in
the 4 corners area of Arizona and New Mexico. It takes
about 25 years to bear nuts in its egg-shaped cones,
and about 75 years to produce nuts in commercial
quantities. A healthy piñon will continue to produce for
300 years.
After the first frost, mature cones open and their nuts
begin to fall. Tarps are spread beneath the trees and
the branches are shaken to knock the remaining nuts
loose. The entire harvest comes from wild,
uncultivated trees.
The piñon has a high protein content. The Native
Americans called piñons “starvation nuts”, since the
nuts were used as a staple food when crops were
scarce. True Piñons have always been a southwestern
delicacy. They are popular in pies, breads, pasta
dishes, salads and especially our candy to enhance,
enrich and complement the food flavors.
