Tangelo

The tangelo (/ˈtændʒəloʊ/ TAN-jə-loh or /tænˈdʒɛloʊ/ tan-JEL-loh; C. reticulata × C. maxima or x C. paradisi), Citrus × tangelo, is a citrus fruit hybrid of tangerine and pomelo or grapefruit.

Sometimes referred to as honeybells, tangelos are the size of an adult fist, have a tangerine taste, and are juicy at the expense of flesh. They generally have loose skin and are easier to peel than oranges,[1] readily distinguished from them by a characteristic "nipple" at the stem. Tangelos can be used as a substitute for mandarin oranges or sweet oranges.

Buying Orlando Tangelos

The Bottom Line

If you've never had a tangelo before, you need to try one....soon! These sweet, flavorful, juicy citrus fruits are a favorite of Floridians in the know. The Orlando comes into season early (in November) and is available for a longer time than its fleeting cousin, the Honeybell. If you need deluxe eating citrus that will arrive for Christmas, choose a gift basket of Orlandos.

The Minneola tangelo (Figure 1) is a Duncan grapefruit x Dancy tangerine hybrid released in 1931 by the United States Department of Agriculture Horticultural Research Station in Orlando. This tangelo (like other tangelo cultivars) is therefore 1/2 tangerine and 1/2 grapefruit. The fruit is quite handsome and a genuine pleasure to eat.

What is a Minneola Tangelo? (with pictures)

The Minneola tangelo is a specific hybrid citrus fruit that is made by crossing the Duncan or Bowen grapefruit and the “Darcy” variety of tangerine, also called a mandarin orange. The cross was developed by the United States Department of Agriculture, in Florida, and was first released for sale in 1931. The fruit combines the sweetness of the mandarin with the tart flavors of the grapefruit, and it is highly prized for its juiciness and combination of sweet/sour flavors.
