March 21, 2012 by staff 

Province Of Reggio Calabria, Italy, The Province of Reggio Calabria (Italian: Provincia di Reggio Calabria) is a province in the Calabria region of Italy. Its capital is the city of Reggio.

As of 2005[update], it has an area of 3,183 km, and a total population of 565,866. There are 97 comuni (singular: comune) in the province, see Comuni of the Province of Reggio Calabria.

The region is famous for the production of the Bergamot orange. Production mostly is limited to the Ionian coastal region of the province of Calabria in Italy, to such an extent that it is a symbol of the entire region. Most of the bergamot comes from a short stretch of land there where the temperature is favourable. It is also cultivated in Argentina,

Brazil and the US state of Georgia, but the quality of the obtained essence is not comparable with the essence produced from the bergamots of Reggio due to the argillite, limestone and alluvial deposits found there.. High quality production is also found on the Southern coast of Turkey, mainly around the town of Antalya.
