MINNEOLA TANGELOS, ORGANIC AND BIODYNAMIC
5- and 10-pound boxes
In season: January through April


Here are just a few of the reasons why we love Minneola Tangelos:

• Deliciously large fruit, typically 3 to 3½ inches in diameter
• Rich, tart flavor
• Juicy with relatively few, if any seeds
• Thin, easy-to-peel, slightly pebbly-feeling skin
• Easy to separate into segments
• Deep orange peel

2–4 Minneolas = 1 cup of juice

Botanically classified as Citrus × tangelo, Minneola is the most widely grown Tangelo and is distinctive slightly bell shaped with a protruding nose at the stem-end neck.

Many medical professionals recommend that patients taking statin drugs not consume grapefruit due to compounds in grapefruit that can interact with the drugs. However, a Journal of Food Science study found that tangelos and tangerines, which also contain grapefruit parentage, do not have the same drug-interactive compounds.

STORING FRUIT:
We defer to the experts at the University of California Davis when we recommend storing all of our fruit at room temperature (around 70 degrees fahrenheit) because refrigerator temperatures (usually 38-42 degrees) can damage them and/or prevent them from ripening to their best flavor and texture. Place produce in an open bowl or on a countertop out of direct sunlight to prevent produce from becoming too warm. Once cut or prepared, all fruits should be refrigerated promptly. Obviously, use all fruits and herbs within a few days since longer storage can result in loss of freshness and flavor.

SHIPPING:
We hand pick to order and ship only on Mondays and Tuesdays to maintain optimal freshness. We ship Fedex ground or home delivery. Expedited shipping is available. A street address is required. We cannot ship to a post office box. If you have any questions or your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, please give us a call as soon as possible at (760) 723-9997.
