Sweet Orange (Citrus sinensis) were originally native to southern China. No-one knows exactly how they arrived in western Europe, but as per a theory, early Arab or Portuguese traders may have found their way to India, the Himalayas and China, and brought back seeds for cultivation. Orange trees naturalized themselves in the hot, dry climate of the mediterranean for hundreds of years, and are now cultivated all over the world, especially in Italy and Israel.
