There are lots of fun facts about oranges. It is thought that the orange originated in northeastern India, southern China, and possibly southeastern Asia. Oranges were first cultivated in China around the time of 2500 BC. In Europe, citrus fruits were introduced to Italy by the Crusaders in the 11th century and were grown widely in the south for use with medicinal purposes. The sweet orange was unknown until around the late 15th century or the beginnings of the 16th century when Italian and Portuguese merchants brought orange trees to the Mediterranean area. Shortly after, the sweet orange was then adopted as an edible fruit. The orange was considered to be a luxury item, afforded to only wealthy people who grew oranges in private conservatories, called orangeries. Raw oranges are full of nutritional value with loads of vitamin C, lots of dietary fiber and lesser amounts of protein, calcium, and iron. Other fun facts about oranges include that Brazil is the largest producer of the delicious fruit followed by the United States, Mexico, and China.

The orange flower is the assigned state flower of Florida because of its fragrance and it's high production in the state. It is one of the most fragrant flowers found in Florida and scents the state during orange blossom season. Not only a flower, orange as a fruit is also the designated state fruit and its juice is the state beverage. Not only can you use orange juice but the orange zest can be used to make candy and orange tea. Orange peel also makes a good natural cleaner. In Jamaica, the orange peel is used to cut grease and oil. It can be used as a natural medicine that may lower blood pressure, depression, and anxiety. And can be used in home gardens to keep the slugs away. Thank you to Stephie for sharing this sweet rolls recipe for frosted orange rolls on the Stephie Cooks site.
