Fruit and Vegetable Name Validation List

PPQ has generated the following list of fresh fruit and vegetable genus, species, subspecies and variety names (PG05) along with corresponding common names (PG17). This list does not represent commodities that may or may not be admissible, but provides the acceptable spellings for the categories listed and provides the corresponding Integrated Taxonomic Information Systems (IT IS) Taxonomic Serial Number (TSN).

This list is not all encompassing; if the genus, species, subspecies or variety does not appear on this list, use the format that appears on the associated phytosanitary certificate, and commercial invoice. PPQ will update the list as necessary and provide the date of the most recent update. All shipments are subject to review and inspection.
