orange trees in Southern Spain
For those of you who have been to Southern Spain, you may have wondered what happens to the oranges hanging on the orange trees. Orange trees that have become icons of our culture like in my city, Córdoba. Many tourists taste these oranges being unaware of their bitterness and then learn the lesson. I have always lived sorrounded by orange trees and only today ,by chance,i have bumped into the orange trees collectors and then i found out that the collected oranges are sent to U.k. so that they can produce bitter orange mermalade! If you haven´t been to Southern Spain yet, now you are warned: dont try to taste any orange hanging on a tree,if you want to know their flavour you have to go to U.k.!
