It is said that Vasco de Gama brought back the first ''Chinese orange'' in Europe where only bitter oranges were grown at that time. In 1791, the Spanish priest Vicente Monzon cultivated the first orange plantation in Carcagente in Valencia, a region that was soon to be famous for the exceptional quality of its citrus. The Maroc Late is a late maturing orange. Its flesh contains an exceptionally high rate of juice and high quality flavor. Topaz Apple is a modern disease-resistant apple variety from the Czech Republic, distantly related to James Grieve. It is a medium or medium-large apple, although the size can vary. The skin colour is yellow, almost completely overlaid with red and crimson flush. The flesh is crisp and cream-coloured.
