The sweet orange tree comes from the southeastern regions of Asia, where it was cultivated thousands of years ago. Subsequently, it expanded throughout the East along the Silk Road.
Sweet oranges were highly prized for their flavor and healing properties. In the 10th century, the Arabs introduced the bitter orange tree in Europe through Andalusia, extending as far as Murcia.
The sweet orange tree began to be cultivated in the XV-XVI centuries. The Murcian orchard cultivates numerous varieties of oranges with particularities in their flavor, juiciness, size, growing conditions and different productivity.
This allows to choose the most suitable type for each specific use; either for consumption as table fruit, juice, for the manufacture of different derivatives (jams, fruit salads…), etc.
