Tangelo’s are a cross between a grapefruit and a tangerine. They’ll grow to the size of an orange tree and are more cold hardy in zones 9-11.
Important to note; the Tangelo prefers an arid climate, so be sure it is planted into well draining soils. Water once a week until it’s established then every other week after that. Keep the ground around the base clear of grass. Ideally you’ll want to use a mulch that’s derived from yard waste. Additionally, use citrus fertilizer as soon as the new growth appears to achieve consistent growth.
