The Coco de Paimpol PDO is a fresh white bean for shelling. Its pod is long and straw-yellow marbled with purple. The pod contains beautiful oval pearly white beans. The Coco de Paimpol is tender and melts in your mouth. It is nothing like the floury texture often associated with white beans.

AOC since 1997, then PDO

The Coco de Paimpol is the first French bean to obtain the French AOC label (controlled designation of origin). This certification attests to the geographical origin of the product and its specific local taste. The AOC label also recognises the expertise of its producers who take care to scrupulously comply with the established specifications.

Cultivating the Coco de Paimpol PDO

The Coco de Paimpol is sown mechanically in March and April. It is harvested by hand from July to November. This white bean is packed in bulk: unshelled in bags of 1 kg to 10 kg or shelled in 220 g trays.
The Coco de Paimpol is available from August to November.

200 producers

The producers of Coco de Paimpol are all located in the Côtes d’Armor. Eighty-four municipalities in the Paimpol region are recognised in the PDO specifications.
