Orange - (Citrus aurantium)
Oranges were first brought to the Mediterranean by the Arabs, probably in the first century. They did not become a permanency, though, until after the eighth century,
when the Moors turned a large part of southern Spain, including Seville, into one huge orange orchard.
The Romans, however, did know oranges: they recorded directions for protecting the trees from cold, and an orange-flower water or decoction was drunk to avoid hangovers and indigestion.
