Bitter Orange (Citrus aurantium, var. amara or Citrus Bigaradia) is a tree native to Asia found in the Mediterranean region and in countries with a temperate climate.

The highly fragrant blossoms of the Bitter Orange tree (called Neroli) are used to make orange blossom water and Neroli essential oil.
