While tangelo season can fluctuate from fall to early spring, most
typically these fruits are at their peak in the Winter months.
The tangelo is one of a kind, it’s a half grapefruit, half tangerine,
specifically designed from a cross cultivation. Even though this citrus
fruit was developed by the USDA’s Horticultural Research Station in
Orlando, FL; California is also a suitable growing area. It’s a
somewhat odd shape for a citrus, nearly pear-like with a round bottom
and a small protrusion at the top where the stem connected to the
fruit. It truly is everything you could ever want in a citrus; it peels
easily, has few seeds, and is perfectly sweet with that dash of classic
citrus tartness. These wonderful citrus delights are only available for
a limited time throughout the winter and early spring, so be sure to
mark your calendar and scoop some up while you can!
TASTE & RIPENESS:
Easy to peel and bursting with juicy sweet-tart flavor, the tangelo is
a must have winter citrus fruit. Like most citrus, tangelos ripen best
when on the tree. The Fruit Company gets all its citrus tree-ripened,
making it perfect to enjoy as soon as it gets to your door.
