"Great Breakfasts" Start With The Letter "O"
The fruit of the orange citrus tree. Oranges originated in southeast Asia, most likely India, Vietnam or southern China. There are three major types of oranges: Sweet (Valencia, Mediterranean and Navel), Loose-skinned (Mandarin and King), and Bitter (Seville and Bergamot). Bitter oranges are usually used for marmalades. The fruit itself is round with a skin, or peel, that reveals segments of sweet and juicy flesh ranging in color from orange to red.
Oranges can be eaten fresh, cooked in sweet or savory dishes, juiced or used as a flavoring or aromatic. They are high in Vitamin C and potassium.
In the dreams of women, oranges represent the reproductive system, fertility or general health. To slip on an orange peel in a dream, foretells the death of a relative.
