Productos Orange – Kerns

The most popular of the citrus fruits exists in two species: Citrus aurantium and C. sinensis. The former is the bitter (or Seville) orange and the latter comprises the vast range of sweet oranges, for eating out of hand or turning into juice. Oranges seem to have been first used for the fragrance of their rind. They were valued as perfume or flavouring, and early Chinese documents mention them being held in the hand so that the warmth released their scent.
