dc.description.abstract Fruit growth measurements of the Minneola tangelo were done for two seasons and a single sigmoid curve was obtained as for other citrus cultivars. Application of gibberellic acid (GA<sub>3</sub>) at full bloom resulted in a slightly larger crop, slightly smaller fruit size with less seed than the untreated controls. The GA <sub>3</sub>had no significant influence on the fruit quality. The average seed content decreased with increasing distance from the pollinator, but the average fruit diameter remained constant. Gamma irradiation of Minneola tangelo caused severe rind pitting but this was slightly reduced with the application of calcium nitrate sprays after full bloom. Off-tastes occurred at doses higher than 1 kGy. en
