A Honeybell is actually a Minneola tangelo. It is a cross between a Duncan grapefruit and a Dancy tangerine. Each fruit is usually 3-3.5 inches in diameter and has a bell-shaped dome at the blossom end. The flavor is rich, tart, and aromatic. Although early Honeybells are more tart, they get sweeter throughout their short season. Last year, the Honeybells came in late and had a very long season here in SW Florida. I was able to buy that fruit through late February. This year the crop came in early and will be done in about two weeks.
For you nutrition nuts, here is the data from the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences:
One medium tangelo or 1 cup sections (3.5 ounces in weight) contains: 47 calories,.94 gm protein, 11.8 gm carbohydrates, 2.4 gm dietary fiber, .12 gm fat, 86.8% water, 21 RE vitamin A, 53.2 mg vitamin C, 30.3 mcg folate, and 40 mg calcium.Honeybells are pretty difficult to find in stores, in or outside of Florida. You usually have to order them directly from the grower. If you haven't had a chance to taste these wonderful fruits, consider ordering a few trays for yourself. You might catch the last batch this year at this grove. Their prices are the lowest I've seen.
