Prized for its oil, this distinctive citrus harks from the Southern Italian region of Calabria. You may be more familiar with it as the essential ingredient in Earl Grey Tea. Also commonly found in a variety of cosmetics & soaps etc as well as boasting various health benefits. It is now increasingly finding favour back in chef's kitchens using zest and juice to impart wonderful citrus flavour. If you are fond of a Spritz, try an Italicus spritz with a slice of homegrown Bergamot as a garnish.
