This orange, also known as sour orange, is usually too sour to be enjoyed out of hand, but this very same bitterness makes this type of orange much more aromatic than the rest of the orange varieties. Almost all parts of bitter orange are used to produce beautiful and aromatic materials for the fragrance industry: the essential oil is derived from the peel of the fruit, orange leaves are used in production of Petitgrain oil, while the delicate white flowers serve in the production of Neroli and Orange Blossom absolute.
