History: The Sweet Orange does not occur naturally in the wild, and is believed to have been cultivated first in either China, northeastern India, or southeast Asia. The Spanish introduced the Sweet Orange to South America and Mexico in the mid-1500s, and the French most likely brought it to Louisiana. It was from there that seeds made their way to Florida, where the first large-scale cultivation of the fruit began, in which Sweet Orange was grafted onto Sour orange rootstock. Presently, Brazil and the U.S. are the worlds two major orange producers.
