Bergamot (Citrus bergamia) is named after an Italian city, Bergamo.
It is an inedible citrus fruit with a yellowish, greenish color similar to a lime. When it is ripe, it becomes yellow. It is about the size of an orange. It is an enduring small tree that blossoms during the winter.
Its oil is cold pressed from the peels of the nearly ripe fruit. It is a green, mobile liquid with an extremely rich, sweet-fruity initial odor and an oily, herbaceous, somewhat balsamic undertone. Main chemical constituents:
- Beta-bisabolene - 1%
