The fruit ripens from green to yellow. Color: Light yellowish green to yellowish brown liquid.

Note: Middle Strength of Aroma: Medium Blends well with: Black Pepper, Clary Sage, Cypress, Frankincense, Geranium, Jasmine, Mandarin, Nutmeg, Orange, Rosemary, Sandalwood,Vetiver and Ylang-ylang. Common Uses: In this variety, the bergaptene content which causes photosensitivity has been removed. This allows the Bergamot to be used in skin and hair care formulations without concern for phototoxicity after exposure to the sun. Bergamot is commonly used to treat skin ailments such as psoriasis and eczema, and by aromatherapists to help reduce stress, depression, and anxiety in their patients. It is also grown as a companion plant in gardens to discourage insects. Perhaps it is most commonly known as the exotic flavor in Earl Grey and Lady Grey Teas. History: Genetically, this citrus is a likely hybrid of Citrus limetta and Citrus aurantium. The name Bergamot is derived from the city Bergamo in Lombardy, where the oil was first sold. The hybrid is native to Calabria, southern Italy, where 80% is grown and where it was an indigenous treatment for malaria, but it is also cultivated in the South of France, Algeria, and the Ivory Coast for its essential oil, and in Turkey for the production of marmalade. Cautions: It may cause sensitivity in some individuals. Avoid use during pregnancy.
