Oranges are among the oldest cultivated fruit and were mentioned in ancient Chinese literature as long ago as 2400 BC. By around 800 AD Arab traders had introduced oranges into eastern Africa and the Middle East where they were distributed via established trade routes.
During the 15th century the sweet orange was introduced into the forest regions of West Africa and Europe by Portuguese travelers who brought them back from Macao, China. The fruit proved very popular and orange groves were soon established to meet demand.
In 1493, Christopher Columbus set sail on his second expedition to discover the New World carrying sweeet orange seeds along with him, eventually reaching Haiti and the Caribbean. The Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon is credited with introducing the fruit to Florida in 1513. By the 16th century the sweet orange had reached England.
Uplifting yet calming, the fragrance of sweet orange is popular. It also disperses cooking and pet odor's effectively and creates a cheering, warm and sunny atmosphere at any time of year.
