Indeed, oranges and orange juices are so ubiquitous nowadays that we take them for granted--but their journey to our supermarket shelves is a long and tantalizing story. This book follows the orange from its origins in China to the Arab world, the Mediterranean and around the globe, illuminating the wide-ranging cultural resonance and culinary presence of the well-known fruit. After bitter and sweet oranges arrived in the Mediterranean, where they were seen as a gift from the gods, they made their voyage to the Americas. The fruit has had a large impact on agriculture, garden design and architecture around the world. They have acted as symbols of great wealth in art, an inspiration for poets and painters, and a source of natural health. Oranges surveys the many varieties of oranges that now exist, explaining the practical complexities of orange cultivation and the challenges facing modern producers and consumers across the globe.--"@en ;
