Citrus Museum, Rehovot, Israel

Minkov Citrus Orchard Museum

Minkov Pardes Museum, Rehovot, Israel

On the site of the first citrus orchard and packing plant in Rehovot, the Minkov Orchard is a slice of history and a peak into Rehovot's, and the country's, past. Best known by the now world famous brand, Jaffa, oranges and other citrus were exported from then Palestine in the early 1900s. High tech science parks in Rehovot used to be citrus orchards less than 30 years ago. This small museum is a salute to Israel's first ambassador to the world, the Jaffa orange and the citrus industry it created.
