EU adds pomegranate from southeastern Türkiye to list of protected designation of origin
The European Union on Friday added the pomegranate from Türkiye’s Sanliurfa region to the list of protected designation of origin (PDO). In a statement, the European Commission said it has approved granting the status of PDO to the pomegranate, known as Suruc Nari in Türkiye, adding it to the list of the bloc’s quality agricultural products and foodstuff. This type of pomegranate differs from the other Turkish ones because of its delicate and soft skin, yellowish color, easy-to-remove arils, sweet and sour taste, and aroma. This is the 10th Turkish food product that has received EU protection, including premium hazelnuts from the Black Sea Region and desserts like kunefe from Antalya and baklava from Gaziantep. ECI reports, citing Anadolu Agency.
