CITRUS AURANTUM (ORANGE) Naranja, Citrus aurantum,
Oranges originated in southeast Asia, in either India, southern
China or Vietnam . The fruit of Citrus sinensis is called sweet
orange to distinguish it from Citrus aurantium, the bitter orange.
The English name derives from the Sanskrit naranga-s
(“orange tree”). It is known as a “Chinese apple”
(e.g. Dutch Sinaasappel, “China’s apple”) in a number of languages.
Some languages have different words for the bitter and the
sweet orange, such as Modern Greek nerantzi and portokali,
respectively. Or in Persian, the words are narang and porteghal
(Portugal), in the same order. The reason is that the sweet
orange was brought from China or India to Europe during the
15th century by the Portuguese. For the same reason, some
languages refer to it as Applesin (or variants), which means
“Apple from China”, while the bitter orange was introduced
through Persia.(Citrus vulgaris or bitter orange)
