MORE TO THE STORY:The bergamot fruit – which ripens from green to yellow – is roughly a cross between an orange and a grapefruit, but shaped like a pear. It’s generally regarded as inedible and unusable for juice, though there are reports of a small village in Italy that raises bergamot oranges specifically, and mysteriously, for the juice.
