Curiosities - During the First Crusade, Southern Italy fell to the Normans, which encouraged Calabrian Jews to engage in the agricultural trades. By the 12th century, the communities were thriving. Since then, the harvest of the Diamante Citron or Etrog has remained a regional tradition.

There are religious interpretations that relate the Etrog to the Garden of Eden. The fragrance is said to be the "Fragrance of Heaven", and the Etrog itself is associated with righteousness, goodness and desirability.

The brisk character of Myrtle marries with leafy nuances, emulating the freshly opened fronds of palm trees. An unexpected mouthwatering accent follows, with Smyrna Date fruit and elegant Cedar wood from Lebanon.
