I went to a local Mexican market and they were selling big bags of what I think are small tangelos for a dollar. I got two bags (about 20 per bag). They are about racquetball sized (at their biggest - some are lime or lemon sized--so smaller), and I've included a picture because my questions are:

1) Is that a tangelo? Normally, I see citrus like this in the mega marts but they are much bigger (usually the size of an orange), not as juicy as these, and not as tart. I guess it could be a tangerine but those are not normally as tart as these. What do you think? I guess what is interesting me is the unusual smaller size, unusual high degree of juice I'm getting, and the tartness. It almost like taking a bite out of a lemon.

2) What to do? These have a LOT of juice for their size, no seeds, and are tart. I'm getting over a tablespoon of juice from one wedge. I counted about 9-10 wedges in the few I ate. 10 wedges, 40 tangelos, and I'm thinking I can do a few applications, aside from just the juice. What would you suggest?
