Where Does the Minneola Tangelo Tree Grow Best?
No matter where you live, you can grow your own delicious tangelos. They make great patio plants - just pot them up outside and bring them indoors if the temperature dips below freezing. It grows great anywhere in the country. And, since it doesn't require full sun, it will grow extremely well and bear delicious fruit, even indoors. If you live in Growing Zones 9-11, you can plant it in the ground.
Is it Easy to Grow Minneola Tangelo Trees Organically?
These trees are naturally resistant to many problems like pests and disease. Because of that, you don't have to spray chemicals on your fruit. The biggest nuisance of Minneola Tangelo Trees are aphids, which can be easily rinsed off with water.
How Much Fruit Will I Get?
The amount of fruit your Minneola will yield depends on the attention and care you give it. The most important conditions that will increase the amount of production are increased sunlight and proper soil. With adequate care, your Minneola Tangelo Tree will produce a good, reliable amount of fruit - particularly in the month of January.
What Does the Minneola Tangelo Taste Like?
This fruit is a cross between a Duncan Grapefruit and a Darcy Tangerine, giving you one of the sweetest, tangiest, and juiciest fruits you've ever tasted. This fruit is hard to resist as a snack right off the tree. The combination of sweet and a hint of sour derived from its grapefruit lineage is a juicy flavor that you won't find anywhere else. Minneolas make a terrific marinade and are excellent on the grill. Place them atop focaccia bread or douse them with vinaigrette dressing for a savory treat the whole family will enjoy. Make a healthy and refreshing Minneola fruit smoothie for a boost of energy after your workout.
Pollination and Fruiting Season
Minneola Tangelos are self-pollinating, so you don't need another tree to cross-pollinate. This makes it easy to grow a lot of fruit on your patio or even indoors. The fruiting season begins in December and can run all the way to the spring.
Best Time to Plant
Plant your Minneola Tangelo any time of year when potting and taking indoors, or when planting in warmer climates. In colder locations, wait until the soil is thawed if planting in winter months.
