Honeybell Orange or Tangelo is a citrus fruit, which is a cross between a tangerine and a grapefruit or a pomelo (Papanas or Chinese Grapefruit). Honeybell oranges are believed to have originated in southeast Asia about 3500 years ago. Honeybell has a taste very much similar to a tangerine but with lots of juice and often the fruit provides only juice without any flesh. There is a characteristic knob at the head of the Honeybell orange that can easily identify the fruit.
