What is a "sweet orange"?

The sweet orange, scientifically known as Citrus × sinensis, is a hybrid citrus fruit believed to be a cross between the pomelo and the mandarin orange. Originating in Southeast Asia, it is now grown in many regions with warm climates around the world. Sweet oranges typically have a round shape with a smooth, bright orange skin and segmented flesh. They are rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, making them a nutritious and popular snack. Sweet oranges are enjoyed fresh, juiced, or used in a variety of culinary applications, from desserts and salads to savory dishes and beverages.
