The best known citrus fruit is the orange, which comes in 400 varieties. These are roughly classified into two groups: eating oranges and juicing oranges. The Netherlands has an unsuitable climate, so we import them.
Although orange trees are grown in tropical and subtropical regions, citrus trees are not considered tropical plants. The earth has a so-called citrus belt. Citrus fruits are cultivated between 40° north latitude and 40° south latitude.
