Other immature green fruits such as hard unripe apricots, almonds and walnuts were also once preserved in this way.

I've picked bitter oranges in July in Seville, their condition wasn't perfect (pulp quite dry and a bit fermented), but the rinds were sound enough. As the fruit matures on the tree, it develops chlorophyll, which is vital for photosynthesis and allows fruit to absorb energy from sunlight. I run practical courses on all aspects of British and Italian food history at my home in the English Lake District.

Cold nighttime temperatures cause citrus to show deep orange color, and when the weather warms up again in late spring and early summer, the citrus tends to regreen. There were no windows in the VSO office, but we watched him through the latticed brickwork that allowed a little air to circulate. We do not supply this type of product by weight and we only supply the best of quality - filtering out any green orange slices that are broken or unusable. The Cali grower goes on to explain the green is not because the orange isn't ripe, but rather, a result of chlorophyll that is naturally made by the orange to guard against excessive sun.

The nuts were collected before the hard shell formed and were processed in a similar way to the green oranges. The FruitGuys asked one of its citrus farmers, Emily Ayala of Friend’s Ranch in Ojai, CA (growers of the fabulous Pixie tangerine and other citrus fruits), to explain why regreening sometimes happens to orange citrus. In the medieval and early modern period, this bitter fruit was probably the first orange to be known in the West. The sweet orange trees ( Citrus sinensis) familiar to us all are hybrids descended from Moroccan tangerine trees ( Citrus tangerina) and Malaysian pomelos ( Citrus maxima).Our dried green orange slices are treated naturally to retain their colour and fresh smell really well. So how can the eighteenth century invoiced receipt below, which I came across in the archives of Arley Hall in Cheshire, be explained? Surprisingly, the green peel doesn't harm the orange and may actually make its fruit even sweeter, if that is possible. Even after they degreen from the cold, growers often leave Valencias on the tree for another six months.
