Orange essential oil - Citrus sinensis (L) osbeck - Valencia type
Valencia is the world's most important orange variety. It originated in either Spain or Portugal and was introduced to Florida in 1870. A major variety in Florida, California, South Africa and Australia, Valencia grows well, is easy to cultivate and very productive. Importantly, it is a late variety and keeps well on the tree, which enables picking until late spring, or even early summer. This prolongs the season and increases productivity.
