Bitter Orange, or Citrus aurantium, is also known as Seville orange and sour orange.
Bitter Orange is an evergreen tree with long spines and incredibly fragrant flowers. The membranes and pulp of the fruit, however, are very sour and bitter (hence the name).
It is now widely cultivated in China, India, and the U.S. It is used as a flavoring agent in many foods, and for its fragrance in bath and body products.
