Question 40 was replaced (thanks T Compton - 16 May 2007) because it had three different possible answers: pear, citrus or orange. As well as being a pear variety, bergamot arguably more commonly refers the pear-shaped citrus or orange fruit, grown in Italy, a cross between a pear-lemon and Seville orange or grapefruit, used in making Bergamot oil and for flavouring Early Grey tea. The word bergamot is originally from the Turkish begarmud, meaning prince's pear.
