What is a Tangelo?
The tangelo is an interesting member of the citrus family. It is the offspring of two plants. Tangelos are believed to have originated in Southeast Asia, about 3,000 years ago. The tangelo’s parents are tangerine and the grapefruit.

A tangelo looks a lot like an orange, except that it is not perfectly round. Instead, a tangelo has a more oblong shape and is the size of something between a tangerine and a grapefruit- about the size of a medium to large orange. This member of the citrus family is known for the juice that it provides. A ripe tangelo is filled with much more juice than pulp and tastes a lot like a tangerine.
