Bergamot Honey has a very citrusy sweet and sour taste and is excellent to combine with fish and cheeses. The use of this fragrant product is very varied, it is mainly used to sweeten, stuff and flavour sweets and dishes. this
Bergamot is a citrus fruit that is produced only in our province, Reggio Calabria (Calabria, Italy).
The exact genesis of this citrus is unknown; the yellow colour would indicate a derivation by genetic mutation starting from pre-existing citrus species, such as lemon, bitter orange or lime.
Its systematic classification as botanic species has also generated many controversies among botanists: some classified it as a species in its own right while others indicate it as a subspecies of bitter orange (Swingle). Some legends make bergamot derive from the Canary Islands, from which it would have been imported by Christopher Columbus; other sources favour China, Greece, or the city of Berga in Spain; while the story of the Moor of Spain is told, who sold a branch for 18 shields to the lords Valentino of Reggio (in Calabria), who grafted it on a bitter orange in one of their possessions in the Santa Caterina district (Reggio Calabria).
The etymology of the name most likely is "Begarmundi", that is, however, of the lord in Turkish, for its similarity with the shape of the Bergamot pear.
