Nicknamed: The Honeybell because, of its bell shape, the Minneola tangelo is a cross between a tangerine and a grapefruit. Its large size and slightly elongated “neck” make it easy to recognize. The most popular of the tangelos, seedless Minneolas are brimming with sweetly tart juice.

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.
