Wekiwa Tangelo Tree – Citrus tangelo ‘Wekiwa’
For the citrus fanatic or for the horticultural nut who THINKS he has everything, we offer this unusual hybrid between a Sampson Tangelo and an unspecified (we would call it “mystery”) grapefruit. The irresistible result is a very juicy tangelo which looks like a baby grapefruit (red-blushed pulp, yellow rind), but is sweet like a tangerine. The Wekiwa tangelo tree is sometimes known as pink tangelo (or “Lavender Gem”). Easily separated into 12 segments with few seeds. Fruit ripens December to February. Self fertile. Zones 8B-10.
