Enjoy a pistachio cake before traveling back to Catania. Sicily is the only Italian region which produces the “true pistachio” and Bronte, with over three thousand acres of specialized cultivation accounts for the country’s main pistachio growing area. Here more than 80 percent of the regional area is focused on cultivating pistachios with particular characteristics. Bronte’s Eden pistachio features a fruit flavor and aroma universally recognized as unique and special. It is referred to as "green gold," and thus it is called the "green pistachios of Bronte” and serves as the main economic resource of this vast territory in Etna.
