These (sour oranges, blood oranges, sweet oranges) are three  
different varieties and originally came from different regions. I  
don't believe any of them are ancestors of the others. We've  
discussed oranges a number of times. All are available if you know  
where to look. The grapefruit does appear to be a hybrid, though. And  
yes, I believe limes and key limes are talked about in this file as  

Perhaps this might be of interest:
