Description: FRUITS ORANGES - Oranges (Citrus sinensis) belong to the rue family (Rutaceae) and come originally from southern China. In addition to oranges, the group of citrus fruits, which are mainly cultivated in subtropical regions, also includes lemons, grapefruits, mandarins, limes and easypeelers. Easypeeler is the name given in particular to crosses between oranges and mandarins whose peel is very easy to remove. - oranges, as is usual for citrus fruit, are most significantly classed by seasonal availability: - winter oranges from the countries of the Mediterranean from November to June - summer oranges from overseas countries from June to November Oranges are also divided into early, middle and late ripening varieties. The varieties also sometimes share a typical fruit color, a distinction being drawn between blond, blood and late oranges. Navel oranges are the most important variety of blond oranges. Blood oranges are subdivided into deep blood oranges (peel and pulp red) and light blood oranges (peel with or without slight red coloration, pulp red). Fungicides are diphenyl, orthophenylphenol (OPP) and thiabendazole (TBZ). Diphenyl can be recognized from its naphthalene-like odor. The fungicides primarily prevent blue and green molds, but they do impair flavor and indication of their use is mandatory.
