Pursat is the first province who grew oranges in Cambodia. Based on research the oranges were imported to be grown in Pursat in 1905 when Cambodia was a French colony. Later, villagers from Battambang brought these orange trees to their province to start their own cultivation. The best soil in Pursat province to plant and cultivate oranges is found in Bannon district.
- Special feature: Pursat oranges have a very special and sweet taste with a light sour influence which differs from imported oranges.
