If these aren't the world's largest pistachios, I don't know what is. This huge pistachio was found along U.S. 54 between Alamogordo and Tularosa at the McGinn Pistachio Tree Ranch.

The owner of the pistachio ranch said he wanted to honor the memory of his father, Tom McGinn, who originally founded the pistachio and grape-producing farm. 01-13

The pistachio measures 30 feet tall and contains about five yards of concrete and is covered with about 35 gallons of paint.
