Abstract

Northeastern India, known for its lush landscapes and rich cultural diversity, has many horticultural treasures that have been granted Geographical Indication (GI) status. These GI tags celebrate these products’ unique qualities, traditional farming practises, and cultural significance to local communities as well as their geographical origin. This article explores Northeastern horticultural commodities with GI status, their uniqueness, their potential, and the challenges they face in obtaining and maintaining these exclusive tags. From the fragrant Khasi Mandarin of Meghalaya to the fiery Naga Mircha of Nagaland, these products tell a story of tradition, flavour, and the ecologically diverse region’s endless potential.
