Pistachio Groves

The pistachio is a small tree, reaching about 30 feet of height at full maturity. Eagle Ranch Groves yield approximately 120 trees per acre. The trees begin to produce nuts in the 4th or 5th year after planting and good production takes 8 to 10 years, with full bearing maturity occurring after 15 to 20 years. Average yield per tree is 1/2 lb by the 5th year, increasing to up to 20 lbs at full maturity.


Eagle Ranch is home to New Mexico’s first and largest producing pistachio groves. The farm consists of 105 acres of pistachio groves with approximately 13,000 trees. Daily field care, harvesting, processing and marketing the finished product all take place on site at Eagle Ranch.
