What Are Tangelos?

Tangelos are a citrus fruit of the species Citrus tangelo, which includes a number of subspecies including Minneola, which is the most common, along with Orlando, Seminole, and others, each of which is produced by crossing various different cultivars of grapefruit and tangerines.

Tangelos are round to slightly bell-shaped, three to four inches in diameter, or about the size of a baseball, with a characteristic “nipple” at the end where it attaches to the stem. They’re easy to peel, with medium skin that is reddish-orange in color with a slightly rough, pebbly texture. The fruit is often seedless but can contain as many as 20 cream-colored seeds, depending on the variety. The fruit is made up of 10 to 12 sections of tender, juicy flesh with a tangy and tart flavor and medium sweetness.

The name tangelo is derived by the blending of the words tangerine and pomelo, the latter being an ancestral variety of grapefruit. They have medium sweetness, a balance of tart and tangy flavors, and can be quite juicy.
