Did you know that Chilli can get Protected Geographical Indication, well on the 24th February 2010 the “Pemento do Couto” obtained such a listing.

Only Chillies from the geographical area consists of all of the district of Ferrol in A Coruña, (Ferrol, Narón, Valdoviño, Cedeira, Moeche, As Somozas, San Sadurniño, Neda, Fene, Mugardos and Ares) can be called and marketed “Pemento do Couto”.

Also trying for the same protection are Pemento de Herbón, which is the area that the Pimientos de Padrón originates (see Pimientos de Padrón – Russian Roulette Tapas) also trying for listing are Pemento de Oímbra and the Pemento da Arnoia.

Note: I sometimes wish we had a tradition in peppers we needed to protect. Grantham and the “Infinity Chilli” maybe?
