The Seville orange was originally from China and was exported to the Mediterranean countries of Europe. These original orange trees were bitter in flavour, then sweet orange trees were delivered to the Portuguese coast.
These sweet oranges quickly superseded the bitter ones, that is for that small area of Spain that still grows them. Nowadays, 15,000 tons are grown every year, mainly to make marmalade!
