Citrus Bergamia 'Fantastico'. Citrus Bergamot Trees.
The Citrus Bergamia 'Fantastico' is also more commonly known as the Lemon Bergamot or Orange Bergamot which is a Sour Orange hybrid tree also closely related to the lemon. Medium to large sized fruit are spherical to flattish in shape having yellow skin when ripe and containing pale yellow flesh with a moderate juice content. Few seeds are present. The essential oil in the rind is commercially used to flavour 'Earl Grey Tea' and in perfumes but generally the zest and juice can be used to flavour food, drinks and is perfect used in marinades.
Perfect as an ornamental tree too, glossy dark green foliage similar to that of the Lemon Tree, beautifully scented large white clusters of blossom and tasty colourful fruit year after year. A very pretty tree, great for growing in containers on a patio as well as your garden.
This tree is self-fertile. Citrus trees instantly bring a piece of the Mediterranean to your garden. Grown in a sunny, sheltered position they will produce crops of delicious sweet fruits even in the UK, with only basic maintenance.
