Regio I

House of the Orchard

 

Two cubicola of this house with the painted walls preserve the reproduction of two lemon trees, full of fruits; besides, in other paintings, there are oranges and limes

 

It has been proven that the reproductions of fruit in Pompeians paintings are tightly realistic, therefore, they have an undisputed documentary value. It results that the common history about diffusion of the citrus fruit is wrong: the historiographers agree affirming that the citrus fruit were brought from India in Africa from the Arabs, that were the first ones to cultivate it in Sicily in the X century; the Crusaders spread it in Italy. But, it seems that lemon, lime and orange trees were acclimatized and cultivated in Campania since the I century A.D..
