Bergamot is a citrus fruit that resembles a small orange whose colour ranges between pale green to an intense yellow. It comes from the town of Bergamo in Italy and today is mainly grown in Calabria. Here lies an institution dedicated to ensuring the quality and origin of the expressed oil. The tree blossoms during the winter which is why the refreshing taste of the bergamot is known not only in summer but also during the colder months. The juice of the fruit is less sour then the lemon, but more bitter than the grapefruit. If you are trying to recall the taste of the bergamot, think of Earl Grey tea where it is added.
