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.
