Robinson Tangerines

Robinson Tangerines are an easy-to-peel cousin of the Page Orange. A tangerine-tangelo cross, Robinsons are sweet and juicy with great flavor and are easier to peel than most citrus fruits. Thin-skinned and fragile, Robinsons are not regularly available in commecial markets.

With a flavor that's equal to that of the Page Orange, we recommend this fruit as an alternative to the Page.

History

The Robinson Tangerine was developed as a citrus hybrid by plant scientists Gardner and Bellows at the USDA, Orlando in 1942. It was subsequently released in 1959 and was named after Terra Ceia resident T. Ralph Robinson. Mr. Robinson was an expert in plant physiology who was instrumental in bringing about the commercial production of Orlando Tangelos and Minneola Tangelos (Honeybells). Robinson, who died in 1968, was inducted into the Florida Citrus Hall of Fame in March, 2017.

Robinson Tangerines are a cross between a Clementine Tangerine and an Orlando Tangelo, which is itself a cross of the Dancy Tangerine and Duncan Grapefruit. The result is a fruit that is 75% Tangerine, 25% Grapefruit and 100% delicious.

The Robinson is a "cousin" of the Page Orange. The Page is a cross of Clementine Tangerine and Honeybell Tangelo, while the Robinson is a cross of Clementine and Orlando Tangelo. Their similar parentage results in fruits that are flavorful and juicy. While the Page has more characteristics of an orange, the Robinson is marketed as a tangerine and has a tangerine's easiness of peeling.
