Oranges are one of the most popular of the world’s fruit. It flourishes in warm climates across the globe and the many varieties of oranges vary from sweet to sour. The tree is a sub-tropical evergreen that can reach up to 30-40 ft tall with thorny shoots and waxy 2-4 inch long leaves . 

The flowers are white and fragrant, growing in a cluster at the tip of the branches. As the flowers wither, the stigma remains which grows into the orange fruit. The fruit is commonly peeled and eaten fresh and often squeezed for its juice.
