Malta’s oranges have excellent reputation

An event by Heritage Malta focusing on oranges in 17th and 18th century Malta will be held on Thursday at 7.30pm at the Inquisitor’s Palacein Vittoriosa.

Inquisitor Fabio Chigi loved the smell and taste of the Maltese orange to the extent that in 1635 he also included orange trees in the newly refurbished garden of the palace. In a time when the fruit was considered a luxury in Europe, Malta’s oranges earned a reputation of excellence.

Noel Buttigieg will help explore the subject, while chef Josef Baldacchino will be conducting a historic cook-along session of ‘composta di bergamotte’, an orange conserve from 1748.

Tickets are available from all Heritage Malta museums and sites and online at http://heritagemalta.org .
