The tangelo is a citrus hybrid of tangerine x pomelo, or tangerine x grapefruit. The fruit is about are the size of an adult fist, has a tangerine taste, and is juicy rather than fleshy1. Tangelos generally have loose skin and are easier to peel than oranges, readily distinguished from them by a characteristic “nipple” at the stem1. Minneolas are a popular variety of tangelo1.

It is a flowering edible fruit and is treated mainly as an evergreen, so it retains its leaves throughout the year.
