I just ate a delicious tangelo tonight with my dinner. Very juicy! It's like a sweeter than usual, very easy to peel orange. Maybe like a giant "cutie." I love them!! They do have more carbs I believe than what is posted here.

I love tangelos, they are kind of large, so I split one with my daughter sometimes. This is what we are eating this time of year, we love satsumas more ,and wish the season for them were longer. we are eating some sweet jiucy pears most days now too. I love to have a small one with some sharp cheddar cheese or peanut butter.I love most fruits. I keep bananas around year round, but when I eat one, I get them small and kind of on the skinnier side and pair it with some protein.

I was surprised to find out about this fruit. It sounded like a joke, Ugli fruit, but it's not. Thanks for sharing this.

Ugli fruit does not exist, it is the name of the company. I had a piece in Jamaica years ago and it is actually a Tangelo which is a hybrid of tangerine, grapefruit and an orange. To me it had a sort of sweet tangy taste.

Tried your link and got an error message saying "The document you requested was not found May we suggest our home page." and then I was diverted to the home page, which seems to be a website which is mainly advertising links.
