A variety of orange, also commonly referred to as a tangelo, which is a hybrid fruit that is a cross between a grapefruit and a Dancy tangerine or a pumello and a tangerine. Larger in size than the small tangerines, a Minneola is oval in shape with a bright reddish-orange outer skin and inner flesh. Generally, this orange will range in size from 3 to 4 inches in diameter. Most of the Minneola oranges have a protruding nose at the stem end of the fruit that makes it distinctive in appearance and recognizable as a Minneola. It has a sweet juicy flesh, which may contain about 6 or 7 small seeds. The flesh is very sweet and often seedless, depending on the type of tree bearing the fruit.
