ℹ Meet Minneola! The worlds favorite Tangelo, fast gaining popularity as a fuss free patio citrus tree easily grown in a pot and moved indoors for winter! Minneola tangelo trees yield fruits renowned for their delectable flavor and distinctive characteristics. A cross between a Duncan grapefruit and a Dancy tangerine, Minneola tangelos offer a delightful blend of tangy tartness and sweet juiciness. Their thin, easy-to-peel rind reveals tender, seedless segments bursting with refreshing citrus flavor. These fruits are prized for their rich, complex taste, making them ideal for fresh consumption, juicing, or enhancing culinary creations with a burst of vibrant citrus essence. To successfully cultivate this botanical rarity in Canada, they are easily grown in pots, which are moved indoors before frost and placed outdoors during the growing season on a sun drenched patio, balcony or deck. Adequate sunlight, well draining soil, and proper fertilization will ensure you get to reap a continued successful harvest. Harvesting time for Minneola Tangelos is fairly flexible. Minneola Tangelos harvested early will have a higher acid content compared to ones that are allowed to ripen longer on the tree. The bold orange color combined with a nice weight, shiny skin and fragrant orange smell of the fruit is the best indicator for harvest. With 2 main flushes of blooms in spring and fall as well as varying ripening times for each fruit this tree typically produces fruit year round, with peak fruiting occurring during the warmer months, allowing staggered picking through out the year. Note: the exact fruiting pattern may vary based on growing conditions and care.
