Our Seville Oranges
Our marmalades are made using fresh, whole oranges sourced only from Seville, Spain; home of the world’s best bitter oranges. We use both bitter oranges (the traditional marmalade orange) and sweet oranges in our marmalades, to create a wide range of products, to suit all tastes.
Did you know?
- Bitter Seville oranges, with their thick dimpled skin are ideal for marmalade making. Their high levels of pectin help the marmalade to set properly.
- Seville oranges have been growing since the 12th century and for the 500 years which followed; they were the only type of orange available in Europe.
- The Seville orange season lasts from mid January to February: any amateur marmalade makers wanting to try their hand in the kitchen only have these precious few weeks to buy their oranges.
