Description from The Citrus Industry Vol. 1 (1967):

"Fruit medium-large, reddish-orange, globose to oblate-necked, and moderately pebbled.  Rind peels poorly and tends to puff.  Seedy, very juicy, and of rich flavor.  Matures late.  Does not hold well on tree, but good for home use.
      The Dweet tangor, currently on trial in Califomia, is of Mediterranean Sweet orange and Dancy tangerine parentage.  This synthetic tangor resulted from the breeding experiments of H. B. Frost of the University of California Citrus Research Center, Riverside.  It was selected in 1930 and introduced in 1950.
