Dr. Louise Ferguson, at the UC-Davis Fruit & Nut Research Center, is 
probably one of the foremost university authorities on pistachios.   She 
might be a good person to contact on this topic, but be forewarned that in 
my own experience with her, and I've heard similar reports from other NAFEX 
members, she can be singularly unhelpful.  I'd like to think that maybe she 
was just having a bad day.
