The precise origin of Florida Honey Tangerines is unknown but is suspected to be a happy accident resulting from a 1916 U.S. Department of Agriculture citrus planting in Florida. In 1922, Florida citrus grower Charles Murcott Smith discovered the first Florida Honey Tangerine trees growing in his Pinellas County nursery. In the Florida citrus industry, Honey Tangerines are also known as Murcott tangerines.
