Tangelos are the sweet and juicy result of a cross between a tangerine and a grapefruit. Two varieties generally available are Orlando and Minneola (also called "Honeybells"). Tangelos are fairly cold-hardy, which makes them suitable for many parts of Florida. The tree can grow quite large, so be sure to leave plenty of room. Tangelos aren't very self-fertile, so it helps to have a compatible citrus tree nearby, like Temple, Sunburst, or Fallglo, to ensure good pollination and high fruit yields.
