Orange
Botanical Name: Citrus sinensis

Ripe fruits on an orange tree

The orange tree can be up to hundred years of age.

It has shiny, dark green leaves and sweetly fragrant white flowers.

There are more than four hundred varieties.

The ripe fruit is yellow or orange with glands on the outer rind containing an essential oil.

Very rich in antioxidants.

The orange tree probably originates from China and is the most commonly grown fruit tree in the world.

The juice and peel (zest) are used to flavour food, schnapps, vodka and liqueurs.

The essential oil from the peel is used for many purposes.

For instance in herbal remedies, dietary supplements, anti-aging products, perfumes and soaps.
