Orange Jade with Handpainted Orange
Sicily is the land of orange diversity. Citrus fruits were brought to Italy with the Arab invasion around 850 AD. The country possesses a warm climate with mild winters and wind: the perfect conditions for large-scale cultivation of these fruit. At first only bitter and yellow oranges were grown, though over time the sweeter and red varieties were also developed. Between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Sicily became a strategic location for the cultivation and business of selling citrus fruit as well as the global benchmark for the production of oranges.
Especially in the area of Mount Etna the oranges thrive particularly well, due to the fertile, volcanic soil and the high water content in the ground. On the island you will find different varieties, each with their own character such as Navellino, Tarocco, Sanguinello, Moro. For my favorite orange and fennel salad recipe click here!
