My Li'l Helper

Have you ever heard of a tangelo fruit? I honestly have never heard of this kind of citrus fruit before, so I searched the net.

According to my source the tangelo is a member of the citrus family (oranges, lemons, grapefruit etc...). It was originally developed from a cross between a tangerine and either a pomelo or a grapefruit.
Like all citrus trees it is an evergreen with thick bright green waxy leaves. While the trunk of the tree has a greyish hue to it the outer branches are the same colour green as the leaves.
The fruit of a tangelo looks similar to a mandarine. It combines the tartness of a grapefruit with the flavour, smell and ease of peeling of a mandarine . The fruit start to ripen from late Autumn through to late Winter and will hold on the tree for between two and three months.

Thanks to Black & Decker juice extractor!
Since we have plenty of tangelos in our backyard, Akesha and I decided to picked them last weekend. Then we made a fresh tangelo juice. Head over to my kitchen to see the tangelo juice that Akesha made.

  4. That is the first time I've ever heard of a tangelo fruit. That you have that kind of tree in your backyard is simply fantastic. Napaka cute naman ni Akesha na nakakatulong mo na sa paggawa nang lemonada galing sa tangelo fruit. Very informative and very educational ang post na ito. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

  7. is it sweet? i like mandarine, but sometimes it is sour. i don't like sour fruit. oranges are rich in vit c, so it is good for your resistance.
    nice pic, kesh!
    so squeeze and squeeze little girl...
