The Habanero Is Ours: If it isn't grown here, it isn't Habanero!

The term "Habanero" Chile was recently awarded to the following Mexican States: Quintana Roo, Yucatan, and Campeche.

The same protection that Champagne, Dijon Mustard, and Parmesan enjoys has been extended to our fiery Habanero via a DenominaciĆ³n de Origen from the The Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI) of the Ministry of Economy.

If they aren't grown in one of these states, they can't be called Habaneros!
