Read Citrus A History Read Citrus A History 107 Read Ë eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Å Pierre Laszlo Walk into your local grocery store and down the produce aisle and you’ll find a dazzling array of citrus from navel oranges and clementines to grapefruit and key limes and sometimes even exotic fare like the Japanese yuzu or the baboon lemon Nearly 100 million tons of citrus are produced globally every year but where did these fruits first come from How did they find their way into the Western world And how did they become both a culinary and cultural phenomenon           Pierre Laszlo here traces the spectacular rise and spread of citrus across the globe from Southeast Asia in 4000 BC through North Africa and the Roman Empire to early modern Spain and Portugal whose explorers introduced the fruit. I read this for a botany class I m taking and the book is surprisingly interesting It s of a story a conversation about citrus instead of just straight facts or growing information The author throws in some autobiographical details since he has travelled a lot and has first hand knowledge of some of this stuff but it s never so much that I was annoyed Overall a fun little read about citrus
