Oranges - Seville (Not Available)

Seville oranges are slightly flattened in appearance and bitter to taste. The tree is more attractive than a normal orange tree with larger, darker, glossy, green leaves. It also has a very fragrant bloom. They are fantastic for making your own homemade marmalade.

According to legend, a gallant Spanish knight returning from the Crusades in the 11th Century, brought a gift of great value for his beloved. But to her dismay, instead of receiving a costly treasure, she was given an orange. After overcoming her shock, the lady ate the orange and planted the seed, which brought Seville oranges to Europe.
