The Minneola tangela is a specific hybrid citrus fruit that is made by crossing the Duncan or Bowen grapefruit and the Darcy variety of tangerine, also called a mandarin orange. The fruit combines the sweetness of the mandarin with the tart flavors of the grapefruit, and it is highly prized for its juiciness and combination of sweet/sour flavors.
The grapefruit is a subtropical citrus tree grown for its fruit which was originally named the forbidden fruit of Barbados. The fruit is yellow-orange skinned, largely oblate and ranges in diameter from 10-15 cm. The flesh is segmented and acidic, varying in color depending on the cultivars, which include white, pink and red pulps of varying sweetness.
Available year-round, Key limes are much smaller than their traditional counterparts. This seeded variety ripens quickly, but is juicy with a thin skin and a subtly sweet flavor, making it a versatile addition to any kitchen.
Immensely popular in cooking and seasonings, this globular citrus has a greenish yellow skin with a juicy, slightly acidic pulp. Limes also sport tremendous health benefits and are rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants.
