Overview
More
Panagiotis and Nektaria started their business in March 2001, with the simple goal of sharing what they already produced - their famous pistachios. Panagiotis, a farmer by trade, has spent 30 years working with pistachio production and cultivation. Nektaria is a passionate confectioner, putting all her love into the sweets she makes using pistachios. Today, at their shop located on the pedestrian street Pan. Ireioti 57, behind Aegina's well-known fish market, you can find Panagiotis' pistachios freshly roasted every day - with or without salt, shelled or raw. Also try the famous housemade pastelli, made with toasted sesame, pistachios and honey, and the pistachio marsipan with caramel. Or go for the traditional almond biscuits, baklava with pistachios, or one of the many spoon sweets and marmalades. - The pistachio came to Aegina in the early 1900s, when N. Peroglou, a doctor, brought the first trees with him from Syria. He kept his plantation hidden at first, but once the secret got out, more plantations slowly but steadily spread over the island, and today the nuts are produced mainly through monoculture. The Aegina pistachio was grafted onto the Chios terebinth tree, and is a variety unique for Aegina island.
