The 2012 pistachio harvest is the largest California has ever recorded.

According to a new report, California growers harvested 551-million pounds of pistachios during the 2012 season. That was partly due to better yields, as well as an increase in acreage for the year.

Although last year's production was larger than any other year, the value of the crop was not as high as it was two years prior.
