Oranges are mostly seedless now because of human cultivation but it seems I remember when I was a kid spitting out  big ole seeds everytime I ate an orange.   (choking hazzard!!)   I would imagine that thousands of years ago they would have been smaller and have a lot more seeds.  I don't know that for a fact though.

Back after a little google search.   The original orange, before human's got a hold of it,  came from the Citron.  Here's a picture.

Edit to add this: https://www.sanpellegrinofruitbeverages....a/c/citron

Quote:The citron is a citrus fruit belonging to the category of "originals", and specifically represents the third species that gave rise to hybrids such as bergamot and "wrinkled" lemon. Belonging to a very old species, it would appear that the citron originated in Asia and was brought to Italy around III century BC by the Persian peoples.

The fruit of the citron is round and it is larger than an orange in size, but this depends on its variety. The citron peel is bright yellow in color, and slightly lighter than that of the lemon. The outside appears to be wrinkled or smooth, and its skin is very thick. The pulp accounts for about 25% of the fruit and is acidulous in flavor, slightly bitter.

Because of its particular flavor, the citron is perfect both for making sweet juice as well as being paired with savory dishes.

The citron has a number of segments that can vary from a minimum of 5 to a maximum of 12. Very few seeds are found inside.

CULTURAL AND RELIGIOUS MEANING
The citron is a citrus fruit with multiple spiritual meanings, and it is a characteristic symbol of the Jewish religion. The citron is the emblem of the ritual Sukkot thanksgiving feast that in ancient times lasted up to 7 days, during which the Almighty was given thanks for fertility and plant growth. The citron is also the symbol of Jewish resistance in the forty years spent in the desert. The citron has had such a widely spread influence, like none other in a religious context.

Many moons ago, when I was travelling in the country side in Greece, we ran into a shepherd who invited us to dinner - his family was going to roast a lamb. Meanwhile he fed us lunch, which consisted of crouton-like bread you dipped into olive oil and half of a fruit that looked just like the citron above. You peeled it with a knife, leaving all the white stuff on the fruit, salted it and ate it. It was kind of a flavor burst, almost a shock, mellowed by the white stuff, but damn, it was refreshing and it sure killed your thirst for hours.

Maybe Ray and his team of mutant retards should examine why Ebola is so perfectly designed to do what it does.

Consider the coconut. It does not fit the human hand. It does not have an easy open pull tab. It does not easily fit the human mouth.

Coconuts do not migrate.

Jeez. You'd have to eat like 30 of those to get the same amount of meat from one modern orange.

Akee fruits and artichokes. Chocolate that takes complex processing to make it into an edible food.

How about some magic mushroom?  They're for sure god sent. Can you imagine Ray on a mushroom trip?

It'd certainly be entertaining, but I was thinking of a more permanent solution, for Mr. Comfort.

Guy looks to plants for intelligent design (which says something in itself, no) but won't put poison ivy in his salad.

That's one cherry-picking sonofabitch.

If "God" was so keen to make "his" fruit edible, then why is it we can't eat orange peel or banana skins—just like
we do apples, pears, tomatoes, grapes, strawberries, peaches, and also a plethora of vegetables?

I sometimes wonder whether or not Comfort is just having a MASSIVE piss-take?  Nobody on the planet could be
this intellectually challenged..... could they?
