Orange Honeydew Melon
Oval-to-round and a delicious cross between a cantaloupe and a honeydew, the very fleshy juicy orangish-yellow pulp of the orange honeydew melon is encased in a hard very yellow matching rind.
It is the only lettuce type that does not occur in red form as well as green. Iceberg is the given name to dozens of cultivars of lettuce, all of which are adapted to specific planting regions and time periods.

Minneola tangelo season is from fall into early spring.
The Minneola tangelo is the only citrus of its kind. It is 1/2 grapefruit and 1/2 tangerine, the product of cross cultivating a Duncan grapefruit and a Dancy tangerine. It is not an optimal self-fruiter, thus it should be planted in close proximity with other pollenating cultivars to bear productive yields. Cross pollination has its side effects though. Inevitably the fruits will bear multiple seeds.
The Minneola tangelo is unique in shape, almost pear-like with a pronounced and stout stem-end neck. Its smooth yet pitted and oily rind is deep red-orange, signaling to its parentage. Its flesh is fragmented and can bear anywhere from zero seeds to over a dozen. It is aromatic, juicy, rich and sweet tart.
The Minneola tangelo was developed by the United States Department of Agriculture Horticultural Research Station in Orlando, Florida and released for commercial production in 1931. The minneola trees grow in the citrus growing regions of Florida California.
