Minneola tangelo are in season this time of year. They are so sweet and colorful as all of the color fades outside. The Minneola tangelo is a cross between a Duncan grapefruit and a Dancy Tangerine, and was released in 1931 by the USDA Horticultural Research Station in Orlando. It is named after Minneola, Florida. Most Minneola tangelos are characterized by a stem-end neck, which tends to make the fruit appear bell-shaped. Because of this, it is also called the Honeybell in the gift fruit trade, where it is one of the most popular varieties.The peel color, when mature, is a bright-reddish-orange color.
