Have you?

Have you had your Minneola today? They are my newfound favorite fruit! I love oranges, but I'm quite particular about them. These have proven to be perfect every time I have bought them (about 8 so far). Ultra juicy, sweet, sour, perfect texture, easy to peel, no seeds, etc. And did you know that they are 1/2 tangerine - 1/2 grapefruit? I didn't even know that till I just went to look for a picture of one to post here! Look for them the next time you're grocery shopping...you (hopefully!) won't be disappointed.

The color of those oranges (um, orange, is it?) is so pretty against the backdrop of your blog.

BUT - believe it or not, I picked up one of those today at the store, debated getting it and put it back since I didn't know what it was. Emma said, "I bet Carson eats those." WHOA. How did she know?!

That is hilarious!!!! I can't believe she said that....you'll have to go back and get one next time, and now you can tell her, yes...he does! :) They are so yummy.

That is pretty hilarious, Angie! Dawson will be disappointed that Carson & Emma have that kind of connection... :)
I'd have to say, the craziest I've gotten with oranges is a tangelo. Have you guys had that? I really thought it was good. I will have to try these next time...
Michelle, I'm jealous that you guys get fruit so fresh out there. Do you have any fruit trees nearby that you can just pick it from?

Yum, I'm sold by your description. Can't wait to find one to taste. I have been crazy for fruit recently.

I love that Emma knew Carson would eat a minneola. She knows her adventurous California buddy well.

Who knew a grapefruit and a tangerine could create such a delicious baby :)

I'll have to give them a try!

Love them! I didn't know they were half grapefruit though! I have craved grapefruit during this pregnancy so a Tangelo is a great "on the go" fix since their so easy to peel and eat! I'll for sure pick some up on my next grocery excursion:) What a cute comment from Carson's friend!

Just wanted to let you know that you inspired me to buy some minneolas last night...yummy! While Eric is a traditionalist and prefers a regular old orange, I much preferred the minneolas. Thanks for the tip : )
