FOWLER, CA - I can honestly say I remember the first tangelo I ever tasted—and boy, did it transform my love of citrus! With a sweet and tangy combination that hits your tastebuds perfectly, I can only imagine that consumers would love the zesty fruit as much as I do. That’s why Bee Sweet Citrus’ Minneola Tangelos are a prime fruit for retailers to add to their shelves. And the good news is, the flavorful variety is now in season until the end of April.
“Unlike traditional mandarin varieties, Minneola Tangelos are perfect for those who enjoy a slight hint of tangy flavor,” said Vice President of Farming Keith Watkins. “While Minneolas resemble the appearance of mandarins, the fruit’s pronounced neck and distinct flavor set them apart as a unique variety with a diverse set of characteristics.”
A cross between a mandarin and a grapefruit, these tangelos bring together the best flavor notes to form a piece of vibrant citrus, noted a press release. Minneola Tangelos combine the color, richness, and sweetness of a mandarin with the tartness of a grapefruit to produce a deep, red-orange fruit that is easy to peel and will draw the eyes of any shopper meandering their way through your produce aisles.
“Like grapefruit and mandarins, Minneola Tangelos are versatile enough to be consumed as a snack or utilized as an ingredient to a wide-array of entrees and desserts,” said Director of Communications, Monique Bienvenue. “Because they’re also an excellent source of vitamin C and fiber, Minneolas are an ideal snack for those looking to add healthy additions to their diet.”
Bee Sweet is currently offering the variety in 3 lb bags as well as standard cartons. Additionally, the company is also reporting steady supplies of its Navel oranges, Mandarins, lemons, Meyer lemons, Blood oranges, Cara Cara Navel oranges, and grapefruit.
If citrus is what you desire for your produce aisle, look no further than Bee Sweet, and let its high-quality products drive shoppers in droves.
