PHOTO GALLERY: Orange

September 26, 2016

Contrary to what we think where the name of this fruit came from (the color orange, that is...) it actually comes from a transliteration of sanskrit "naranga" from the Tamil word, "naru" which means "fragrant."  It is originated from Southeast Asia, but now, they grow all over the world in warm climate.  Orange is known to contain Vitamin C, but once cut or squeezed, vitamin C begins to dissipate quickly.  To enjoy maximum amount of vitamin C, we should eat right after they are picked.  Since they don't grow in Norway, chances are, very small amount of vitamin C is left by the time we purchase at the store.

Still, we should just sit back like these people and enjoy its fragrance and juice!
