A pine (Pinus Pinea) takes between 20 and 30 years to produce pine nuts.
A pine cone takes 3 years to form, first it is like a marble or “chota”, then a small ball or “perindola” and finally it grows and acquires its final size, with removable pine nuts. In the third year, the pine cones are taken down from the pine tree, stored, opened in the sun and the pine nuts are extracted from their shells, which are then processed in the factory.
Piñonsol is a cooperative from Pedrajas de San Esteban, very close to us, created to directly market the pine nut of its partners, all of them pine nuts collectors.
All the pine nuts that Piñonsol sells is from pine cones owned by its partners, open to the Castilian sun.
