Delicious Cross between a Tangerine and a Grapefruit
The Minneola Tangelo, Citrus x 'Minneola', is a delightful cross between white grapefruit and sweet tangerine. Also called a Honeybell, this beautiful orange-red fruit is a perfect balance of sweet and tangy flavor.
This winter ripening fruit tree is an evergreen that can be grown anywhere. In colder weather climates bring your Minneola Tangelo tree indoors for the winter and pick fruit inside your home between February and spring. It will be perfectly happy in a container in front of any sunny window.
The Minneola Tangelo is a hit with adults and children. The brilliantly colored fruit against glossy dark green leaves is irresistible. Juicy, easy to peel and very few seeds make it a perfect snacking orange.
There is very little pulp making this a great orange for cooking, canning and juicing too. The added bonus of the Vitamin C and fiber they contain means you are providing your family with a healthy, unprocessed food that requires very little care and stores well.
The Minneola Tangelo is an easy to grow, stunning tree that offers year round interest and a healthy snack alternative in any climate.
