This comes in two distinct forms. A herb (Monarda fistulosa) which is grown mainly in the U.S.A and Mexico - this is used for flavouring salads and a relative of which (Monarda didyma) is used to produce a tisane; and bergamot orange (citrus Bergamia) which produces an "orange" grown for its fragrant oil. This later variety is grown mainly in Calabria in Italy, and used to flavour Earl Grey tea. See also "Earl Grey Tea"
