It was originally produced by Swingle, Robinson and Savage at the UDSA, Orlando, Florida, 1931.The Minneola is an extraordinarily juicy citrus fruit with a distinct and attractive taste. It can be prone to acidity, depending on the growing regions, but is of excellent quality for those who like a touch of tartness to balance the flavor. It is usually seedless, is very easy to peel, and feels quite soft of touch when mature. The shape is round with a distinctive neck, and the peel is finely pebbled, almost smooth with an attractive deep orange-red colouration. As they are fairly cold-hardy, Minneola trees can adapt well to a wide range of climates and can cope with the hot conditions of the sub-tropics as well as the cooler Mediterranean climates. It is a mid-season fruit. Names: Minneola Tangelo; Minneola; Honeybell. It is available in January February and December in Turkey. Grown in: Florida, South Africa, Peru, Turkey, Israel.
