Famiglia: Ibridi Mandarino X Pompelmo – Tangelo
Nome botanico in latino: Tangelo Minneola
Disponibile mezzo fusto o cespuglio
Vaso di diametro 20 o 22 cm
A hybrid obtained in Florida in 1931 from the Dancy tangerine and Duncan grapefruit.
The fairly large, vigorous tree has dark green foliage and produces large fruit with a prominent neck (similar in appearance to the Tarocco orange), easy to peel with a variable number of seeds, which remains at length on the tree. The attractive colour of the fruit and its external position on the tree make this an excellent ornamental plant, perhaps the best of the tangelos for this purpose. It is self-sterile and needs cross-pollination in order to be productive: pollinators of the cultivars shown to be suitable for the Orlando have been tried, but if it is grown far away from pollinators it produces seedless fruit. The fruit can be picked in late February-March and usually has many seeds, if growing near pollinators.
