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.
Devotees of Honeybell tangelos place the fruit on an elite throne in the citrus pantheon. The fruit is so succulent, so full of sweet juice, that one is tempted to lean back over the sink and squeeze it right into the mouth. Resist. The soft flesh coupled with the bright liquid is a package best enjoyed together.
- 2–4 squeezed Minneolas = 1 cup of juice
