"Signor Guglielmo sniffs the air noisily.     'Bergamot!' he says.
And there, indeed, a hundred years in front of us, peasants in Calabrian dress, men with short trousers, the women with red petticoats and the great dropping head-dress, are escorting a cart loaded with the precious fruit on its way to the mill. The cart leaves behind a perfume so strong that it completely overpowers that of oranges and lemons. We are in a bergamot-steam. My host seems enraptured ...
Let us go to the orchard! It is an enchanted spot. Emerging from under the vine arbor, we enter a grove of oranges, mandarins, and bergamots; very high, very luxuriant, meeting above our heads, and having beneath their arches a shadow that is scarcely flecked here and there with a ray of sunlight. A little further on their is great square inclosure entirely filled with bergamots."
--from The Italians of To-day by René Bazin, trans. William Marchant
