I've never heard of a Minneola, online it says it's a cross between tangerine and grapefruit.  Would it qualify as a grapefruit and be benificial.  Wishful thinking.

With tangerine as a black-dot, minneola can't be too bad for occasional use. I'd treat as neutral until you see how you react to it. It's really up to you on this one since arguments can be made either way. Technically neutral.

I think a Minneola is a mandarine variety...  Some books list tangerines as a subgroup of mandarine, some say they are the same thing...  I will verify what my Citrus book says, later.

If eating a Minneola, I would use the tangerine rating...

The pommelo is a larger, less sweet citrus than the grapefruit.

To me Minneola is the same as what most people in the states call a  tangelo.

Tangelos look like a small orange, are fairly easy to peel(loose skin), and taste is is smiliar to a tanagerine. They are easy to distinguish from an orange because of a bump at the top of the fruit where the stem was.

Tangelos are created by crossing tangarines with either a grapefruit or pomelos

Correct, the Minneola is a variety of Tangelo...   Another tangelo is called "Orlando"...

I can eat more tangelos than I can tangerines...  My tangelos look very much like the Minneola in the Citrus book...  More information can be found here:
