Each year, in January and February, tractors roam the streets of Valencia, Spain, shaking trees and catching oranges in plastic nets. 

There are 12,000 trees across the city and between 350 and 400 tons of oranges are taken each year. 

These bitter oranges are not fit for human consumption and eventually will be composted. (REUTERS)
