The name Kerman is probably derived from its inhabitants, the Germanioi, mentioned by Herodotus.  The Town is situated close to Dasht-e-Lut desert from which it is separated by a range of mountains.  Although this region is situated in a desert, its pistachio , grown principally in the Rafsanjan-Kerman area, is the most popular nut in Iran, though walnuts, almonds, and hazel nuts are also eaten; so too is melon seed, which has first to be adroitly split with the teeth to extract the edible kernel. A variety of nuts, seeds and dried fruits, known collectively as Ajil are eaten before and after meals and particularly in Iranian parties. The most well-known crafts of the region are the local leather industry and silk embroidery.
