Our Siberian pine nuts grow naturally in the Siberian taiga. They are not subject to any treatment thanks to the cold and dry condition (25° / 35°) of the environment where they grow. Harvesting takes place in October and November, namely months in which farmers harvest the pine cones in the forest.
The Pinus Sibirica is a common species in central-southern Siberia as well as in the far east of Russia. They are rather small and rounded pine nuts, but are known among Siberians as high quality and healthy food.
Symbol of death and resurrection, the pine tree was considered a tree of divine references. Starting from its pine cones, whose shape refers to the egg, which is associated with birth and fertility, the tree was celebrated by the populations of the Mediterranean area, including Etruscans, Greeks, Celts and Romans. Famous in ancient Rome was also the ritual belonging to the feast of Arbor Intrat, in which the consecration of the pine tree took place following the myth of Atys. It is said that Atys, a young inhabitant of Phrygia, was so beautiful that he conquered the goddess Cybele herself, becoming her passionate lover. The King of Pessinunte (the ancient kingdom of Midas) was convinced that the boy had been subjugated and decided thus to separate him from the goddess by offering him his daughter in marriage, thus angering Cybele who manifested herself during the wedding by playing a Pan flute (the traditional ritual instrument also of the Etruscans, called aulos). The sound of the flute drove all the guests mad, including Atys himself who mortally mutilated himself with a knife. Zeus, moved to pity for the story, wanted to turn him into an evergreen pine tree, gifting him eternity.
Some people reported what has been called Pine Mouth Syndrome, that is a strong feeling of bitterness in the mouth after 24-48 hours after ingesting certain species of pine nuts, a feeling that in some cases lasted up to two weeks. The cause has been found in a variety of Chinese pine nuts from the Pinus armandii tree that China has been isolating, in order to avoid similar problems in the future. Following appropriate analysis, scientists have agreed on the fact that, despite the sensation felt after ingesting this type of pine nuts may be unpleasant, the reaction has no remarkable effects on health.

You can store natural Siberian pine nuts in cool, dry places away from heat and moisture. Here are 4 useful tips:
- The ideal way to store Siberian pine nuts is in a refrigerated environment. Nuturally Siberian pine nuts can also be stored at room temperature during the winter season due to the low temperatures. During summer, however, it is advisable to store the product in the refrigerator or in the coolest possible environment, as increased temperatures could encourage decay.
- The ideal container for the storage of natural Siberian pine nuts is glass. Indeed, because of its composition it is impervious to chemical agents and gases, and, as it has excellent insulation properties, it holds the initial temperature for longer than other materials. It is even better if the glass is coloured: using coloured glass blocks the entry of certain wavelengths of light (including ultraviolet), and thus certain nutritional and organoleptic characteristics remain unaltered.
- The type of closure of the container is also important as an airtight cap ensures that the food is protected from excessive contact with oxygen that can lead to lipid oxidation and encourage the growth of aerobic bacteria.
- The best kind of storage environment is one which is well ventilated because ventilating the premises keeps internal humidity under control, which otherwise could escape from windows, thereby guaranteeing the right balance to lessen the onset of mould.
