Pinyon Nut Harvest
2012 Harvest

The pinyon (or piñon) pine tree grows in the southwestern United States. The trees yield edible pinyon nuts, which have been a food staple of the Native Americans for hundreds of years. Today, the pinyon nuts are a delicacy enjoyed by all Americans.

The Fall of 2012 has provided a bountiful harvest of pinyon nuts for the Navajo Nation. This type of harvest is a rare event as it has been more than a decade since the Navajo was provided a harvest of this magnitude. These nuts are from a Pinyon Tree that is native to the Northern Navajo Nation and has been harvested by the indigenous people for more than 1400 years. Pinyon nut shells have been found in the cliff dwellings of the ancient Pueblo people (Anasazi). The nuts are harvested by the Navajos and used as sustenance and a means of commerce with the local Trading Posts. Teec Nos Pos Trading Post is privileged to be part of this Navajo pinyon nut harvest and now has several thousand pounds of fresh raw and roasted pinon nuts for sale.

The pinyon nuts are available in raw or roasted conditions. The roasting includes a light salting. Unsalted pinyon nuts are available upon request. These pinyon nuts can be purchased in quantities of 0.5, 1, 3, and 10 pounds. Larger quantities are available at wholesale prices. Please contact us regarding size and price.
