ORIGINS

Though the Citrus genus has many points of origins ranging from Indonesia to China a 2004 report published in the “Agriculture Review” points to the hills of Meghalaya and Nagaland as the home of ocal green orange (Citrus tanaka).

TASTE

Local green orange tastes as it sounds.The fruit is sweet but retains the same essence as a lime but without the mouth puckering qualities—it’s a sweet, mellow citrus.

AYURVEDA & MEDICINAL USES

Possesses remarkable antioxidant activity.

Displayed antihyperglycemic properties.

Shown to fight various forms of cancer, including that of the mouth, skin, lung, breast, stomach and colon.

NOTABLE FACTS

On the other hand, the book, “Fruits of Warm Climates” cites a broader range by including India’s central and northern regions. The fruit itself is a hybrid of a Mexican lime and sweet citron or sweet lemon..

TRY-ME RECIPES

Local green orange juice is a favorite in the humid rainy season:simply peel and juice the whole fruit, using either a commercial juicer or a hand-held citrus juicer. Additional flavors to add to any juice include mint, ginger, cranberry, strawberry, orange, pineapple, coconut water, lemon, lime, or kiwi.

Make a salad dressing from the fruit by combining it with a mustard base, white wine vinegar, pepper and agave.

Make popsicles from the fruit’s juice, adding chunks of fruit as desired.
