Orange Chili Prawn

Updated: Jul 6, 2021

"ORANGE", Arabs later traded the fruit and spread the word all the way to Moorish Spain; the Spanish word for orange is "naranja". In Old French, the fruit became "orenge" and this was adopted into Middle English, eventually becoming our orange, fruit as well as colour.

Today, they are grown in most warm regions of the world and consumed either fresh or as juice.

Oranges are a healthy source of fiber, vitamin C, thiamine, folate, and antioxidants. They have multiple health benefits.
