Origin
Florence

The citron of Florence is a very fragrant citrus fruit, which is named after its most known origin of cultivation.

History

It was first carefully described by Johann Christoph Volkamer in his Hesperides as well as by others.

This variety is one parent of the Bizzaria chimaera.

Unlike some other citron varieties, this variety was never used as Etrog by Jews in the Feast of Tabernacles. The most popular variety respected by Ashkenazic and Sephardic communities is also Italian, namely the Genoese citron.[1]
