Source & Availability
Citrus fruits have been cultivated in Sicily since they were introduced by Moorish invaders in the 11th century.
The pleasing appearance of citrus trees and the fruit was mentioned by many ancient travelers, even though the fruit of citrus trees had not evolved to the point as an important food staple, the fragrance of all parts of the citrus trees, including the flowers and fruit, were desirable perfumers of rooms and were thought to repel insects.
However, in 1747, James Lind, an English doctor, discovered citrus juice could prevent scurvy, a disease that killed more men on long sea voyages than the naval battles the British fought against the French and Spanish. Sicilian lemons and limes became incredibly valuable. Believe it or not, the farmers’ battle to protect their fruit led to the rise of the Mafia.
