I have eaten two of them and so here is my review. Minneola, I am disappoint.
Easy to peel? Not so much. The skin is tough, was difficult to get a finger under and I ended up cutting the skin with a knife to even get it started.
Sweet? Not so much. Not sour like a grapefruit but certainly not in the same class as a navel orange.
No pits? Found several…
Juicy? Well yes, that part is true. Juicy enough to cover my desk, shirt, pants, several napkins and a couple of keyboard keys that are now sticking a bit.
So I go to Wikipedia to find out more about this fruit, to find out who their lobbyists are so as to make a mental note of it when I found out that this mystery fruit is just a tangelo. TANGELO! I have heard of them, cross between tangerine and other citrus fruit. It’s just a hybrid with a good publicist. Much like the kiwi (formerly Chinese gooseberry) and dried plums (prunes) it had an identity crisis and some advertizing genius (sorry collegeboy) got his hands on it and rebranded it with exaggerated claims and promises. Well this is one shopper that won’t get fooled again.
