The Coco de Paimpol is a white bean grown in the Côtes d’Armor region of Brittany. The term Paimpol comes from the port of the same name, where it is believed the beans were first imported from South America in the 1920s. They are now a staple of the Breton diet and their harvest between July and October is eagerly awaited. It was the first vegetable in France to be awarded Appellation d’origine contrôlée status.
