Picking one of our spring tangelos to test the sugar and acid levels. In this late maturing tangelo it’s important that we monitor the acid so we can harvest at the peak of maturity. This is when we reach the ideal sugar to acid ratio making for a delicious sweet and slightly tangy tangelo.

Our spring tangelos are our latest maturing tangelo. The cool winter nights slow down the reduction in the citrus acid allowing the fruit to stay on the tree longer while continuing to build sugars.
