Customer Comments on Tangelo Tree
Minneola sets very heavily and if not thinned tiny fruit result and don't ripen well. Skin is very thick and impossible to peel but fruit tastes sweet and delicious though dries out quickly if not picked at the right time, in our cool climate. | Anthony Miceli - Mornington, VIC 25-Feb-2006

Very subject to scale, sooty mould and citrus leaf miner in my area. Spraying with pest oil a must. Needs good water and heavy feeding. Good cropper. Tangy, juicy but seedy fruit. | David White - Newcastle, NSW 30-May-2006
Have a Minneola which is in it's 4th cropping year....wonderful fruit, but to keep the skin nice and thin, you need to feed little & often....too much nitrogen makes the skin thick....water all summer, with tank water, mulch on the drip line...wonderful.. | Lesley - Hamley Bridge, SA 03-Jul-2006
After yrs of neglect, pruned my tree, now very productive after big rains. Clay soil on slope. Fruit bright red orange. Some have knobs others not. All have very thin skin, some seeds (near other citrus). Very sweet tasty juice. ?Flying fox? eat whole | Bronwynne Luff - Currumbin Valley, QLD 02-Sep-2012
