About Oranges

As the most commonly grown fruit in the world, oranges come in many different flavors, from extra sweet to extra sour. Although most people do not eat the bitter-tasting rind, it is frequently ground into livestock feed after heating and removing water. Also extracted from orange peel is orange oil, which is used in food flavoring, perfumes and household chemicals such as cleaners and polishers.

Orange blossoms and petals contain a strong aromatic component used in perfumes. In some European countries, blossoms falling from orange trees are gathered, dried and used in teas. Others use orange tree leaves to brew tea for medicinal purposes.

By implementing mechanical harvesters that “shake” the tree canopy, forcing oranges to fall into the harvester, farmers collect oranges when they are ripe during late summer.
