The Mollar pomegranate from Elche is the only pomegranate in the world with a Protected Designation of Origin. The geographical area of ​​the DOP covers 40 municipalities in the regions of Baix Vinalopó, Vega Baja and L’Alacantí. More than 75% of the national production of pomegranates is concentrated in that geographical area.
