Ortaniques

Florida Ortaniques are a one-of-a-kind cross of sweet Oranges and Tangerines. They are technically a "tangor," like Temple Oranges and Honey Tangerines. And like their cousins, they have an unforgettable flavor and sweetness. Their name says it all: ORange + TANgerine + uNIQUE = Ortanique.

History

Ortaniques were reportedly discovered by C. P. Jackson in Jamaica in 1920. Jackson grew over 100 seedlings, selecting the best for propagation. Believed to be a natural hybrid of wild Oranges and Tangerines, it was considered to be a natural tangor (tangerine orange cross) and was given the name Ortqanique by H. H. Cousins.

Largely grown as a specialty orange, Ortaniques remain popular with those who are familiar with the fruit.
