Description: Oranges come from an evergreen tree, reputedly native to Southeastern Asia or Indo-China; the trees grow to a height of 6-15 metres. The leaves are elliptical to oval leaves in shape, alternate, dark glossy green in colour and 4-10cm in length. The 5-petalled flowers grow singly or in clustered racemes, they are white in colour, thick and waxy with yellow stamens. The fruits are spherical and are green when unripe, ripening to orange, the skin is tightly dimpled, waxy and 7-12cm in diameter.
Interesting Fact: Did you know that if an orange looks green, it may not necessarily be unripe? If the fruit is left on the tree, variations in the weather can cause the orange skin to go green again as the plant reabsorbs chlorophyll from the sun. So green fruit doesn’t necessarily mean unripe fruit, oranges that have been orange and then turned green will still taste nice.
SUGGESTED USEPowdered orange can be used to flavour salad dressings, cakes, biscuits and scones when fresh orange is unavailable. A decoction of the powder can be added to lotions, creams and shampoos. An infusion of the powder can be used to wash floors and surfaces, orange has antibacterial properties.
