Tangelo (/ˈtændʒəloʊ/TAN-jə-loh, /tænˈdʒɛloʊ/tan-JEL-oh; C. reticulata × C. maxima or × C. paradisi), Citrus × tangelo, is a citrus hybrid of the cultivar Citrus reticulata, like such as B. mandarin or tangerine, as well as a maximum citrus variety, such as pomelo or pomelo. The name is a portmanteau of “mandarin” and “grapefruit”. Tangelos are roughly the size of an adult fist, have a tangy, spicy flavor, and are juicy at the expense of meatiness. They tend to have loose skins and are easier to peel than oranges, which are easily distinguished from them by a distinctive “nipple” on the stem. Tangelos can replace tangerines or sweet oranges.
