Honeybells – The Ultimate Citrus

Those who love citrus often live in anticipation of the month of January – Honeybell season. Some people consider the Honeybell (also known as the Minneola Tangelo) to be the ultimate citrus fruit – incredibly sweet and unbelievably juicy.

Honeybells first came into existence in the 1930s in Orlando, as a cross between a Duncan Grapefruit and a Dancy tangerine, and was named for the town of Minneola, Florida. The name comes from its unique shape – the "nipple" formation at the stem, which gives it a bell-like shape. Their bright, red-orange skin is looser than that of a traditional orange and therefore is easier to peel, making it great for lunchboxes or meals on the go. The flesh is extremely sweet and one Honeybell can almost supply a full-sized glass of juice!

The nutrition in a Honeybell surpasses most citrus fruit:

  • High in Vitamins A and C, which are both proven to boost the immune system and the metabolism of food
  • Rich in nutrients such as calcium for healthy bones and teeth
  • Contain fiber and protein to help promote good muscle and tissue construction.

Honeybells are available during the month of January from Orange Ring, by themselves or with our Navel Oranges, Ruby Red Grapefruit, Pineapple Oranges, Sol Zest Mandarins, and Florida Tangerines. Please call 800-237-7847 and speak to one of our friendly and knowledgeable customer service representatives, or place your order online at our secure website at
