Rampant in the Mediterranean and tropical regions, the fruit of Citrus sinensis is called "sweet orange" to distinguish it from the "bitter orange" (Citrus aurantium). The birthplace of the orange is between the Himalayas and southern China. It was the Portuguese who brought him around 1400. Since then, its cultivation has spread considerably in many countries. The sweet orange, a small tree of the family Rutaceae is an old híbrirdo probably emerged from a cross between Citrus maxima and Citrus reticulata.
