New Mexico Pinon Nuts

Authentic Flavor For Discriminating Tastes

New Mexico Pinon Nuts pouring out of the bowlThese are the pine nuts that everyone desires but are difficult to find because New Mexican Pinon (Piņon) are not farmed and the indiginous trees produce this famous variety in large quantities only every seven years.

Our pinon nuts are only harvested from the mountain forests of New Mexico where the pinon trees grow in abundance.  Other common names and mispellings of the New Mexico variety include pinyon, pinonnes and pinion.

Lightly Roasted with Only a Hint of Salt

Our pinon nuts are washed, sanitized, and sorted to remove debris and hollow shells. They are then slowly and evenly roasted, cleaned again and very lightly salted for that unique New Mexico pinon flavor (see below for information about additional roasting to your individual taste preferences).

We search for the best quality pine nuts available in the state of New Mexico.  If you know New Mexico pinon, you will love our product.

Important Distinctions About Pinon Nuts

Our pinon nuts are special because we only offer the hard-to-find New Mexico variety.  Pinon from other countries and other southwestern states just don't measure up to the flavor and quality of nuts that are harvested in the Land of Enchantment. 

Pinon from other Southwest states may be larger, but they also have more pine flavor rather than the buttery taste of New Mexico pinon.  If you are using pine nuts for cooking, we recommend buying less expensive imported, shelled varieties.
