Greece: Santorini's cherry tomato is now a protected term

The European Commission has awarded the term “Tomataki Santorinis,” a small tomato grown on the eastern Aegean island's volcanic soil, a Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) and protected geographical indication (PGI).

The variety, which has a very concentrated flavour compared to other tomatoes, is said to be first cultivated on the island in 1875. The denominations will be added to the list of more than 1,200 products already protected.
