Bergamot is a small evergreen tree of the Rutaceae family that can reach up to 4 meters high and produces white, strongly fragrant blossoms, which eventually develop into yellow pear-shaped fruits. The name "Bergamot" is also applied to other varieties of pear, as well as other plants of the Mint family due to the similar fragrances that they produce. Bergamot essential oil is extracted from the fruit's rind and is popularly used in perfumes and colognes, as well as food flavoring.
