What did I find?

The new crop of halos are in the grocery store!

Halos is the new name for Cuties.  Cuties is a marketing term for mandarins.

Mandarins are one of the three basic types of citrus fruit (mandarin, citron, pummelo).  Everything else you find in the store is a back cross from these types.  Actually the mandarins that are Cuties or Halos are also probably hybrids.
