My interpretation of the Italian countryside with its colorful, citrus groves.
Fun “orange” facts. The orange is a citrus fruit and is a hybrid of the pomelo and mandarin. Oranges have been grown since ancient times and originated in Southeast Asia. Around 85% of all oranges produced are used for juice. It is believed that Christopher Columbus was the first to bring orange seeds to America during his second voyage to the region in 1493. There are now over 600 varieties of oranges worldwide.
