Bergamotto: The origins of this citrus fruit, which almost certainly is a genetic mutation of the lemon or the bitter orange, are not known.

Chinotto: The origins of the myrtle-leaved “chinotto” orange tree are also unknown and here again it is believed to be a genetic mutation of the bitter orange tree.

Cedro: It is believed that this is one of three species of citrus plants that give rise to all the other known citrus plants.

Arancia Amara: The bitter orange tree is an ancient hybrid, but it has been growing as an autonomus species for centuries.
