I'm not sure if the specific information which Johnnae posted is in  
there yet, but if it isn't, it probably will be in the future. Check

But of course they had oranges.Both a bitter orange,
followed by at least two versions of sweet oranges prior
to 1600. (Navel oranges date from Brazil in the 19th century.)
Normans encountered oranges in the Middle East and quite probably
in Southern Italy and Sicily. Venetians had them of course.
Platina mentions them and his book was published in Venice.
I know because I sat down and did some research on oranges
and candying oranges. I ended up with 211 pages in the last
version with a bibliography that runs from pp 192-208.
So, What sorts of oranges can be found at Food Lion in October?
