The orange tree has been present in Asia for 4500 years, and was cultivated by the Sumerians, then the Egyptians. This shrub can reach a height of 10 metres. Sweet oranges have been eaten since the beginning. It was only later that we discovered the use of its extracts, such as neroli (orange blossom). What a great discovery!
