Murcott (fruit)

The Murcott (marketed as: Honey Tangerine) is a tangor, or mandarin × sweet orange hybrid'.[1][2][3]

The murcott probably originated around 1916 in a US Department of Agriculture planting. The variety is named for Charles Murcott Smith, who grew them in Bayview (Pinellas County, Florida) from 1922.[3]

The trees grow upright, but often have branches bent or broken by heavy fruiting at the ends.[3]

It is widely grown in Florida, where it matures in January to March. Citrus scab and alternaria fungus disease attack Murcotts.[3]
