ℹ The Pinyon pine is the best tree for growing high quality, large size pine nuts. Pinyon Pine cones are highly valued for their culinary and nutritional qualities (they are a primary ingredient in making pesto). Their flavor is buttery, mild and sweet - some say with slight notes of citrus. Wild foragers, and sustainable gardeners have and continue to value this tree as a special food source - whether eaten raw or roasted, or made into pestos, cookies, or other dishes.
