Bigaradier is grown on the east coast of Corsica in optimal southern conditions.
B for Bigarade
As the flowering season approaches, the bigaradier is adorned with a thousand and one intoxicatingly fragrant white flowers.
The bigarade is a fruit similar to the orange, but smaller in size. Also known as a bitter orange, it is used to make marmalade, to spice up dishes or to make essential oils. What makes the bigarade so special is that it can only be eaten cooked!
Bigarade is distinguished by :
- its skin becomes rougher, and is tinged with green and yellow.
- its flesh is acidic, moderately juicy and bitter
- pulp with seeds

A year in the life of Bigarade
I need a whole year between flowering and harvest! The latter takes place in January, February and March.
I'm very well known for my marmalade. Perhaps you don't know that I'm the base ingredient in certain alcohols (to be drunk in moderation, of course).
