Botanists believe the hybrid stemmed from 3 specie varieties in the Citrus genus family. Grows exceptional in all districts in California, especially in Orange County, California.
Citrus tangelo Tangelo - Tangelo is another human creation. A hybrid of three species: C. maxima, C. reticulata, and C. paradisi. It can best be thought of as a mixture of a tangerine and a pomelo.
