I have passed by this strange and true to it's name, ugli fruit, many times in the store. I have been curious but unwilling to try it because of the way it looks.
I did some investigation and found out that it is from Jamaica and is a cross between grapefruit and tangerines. Talk about freaky offspring! Anyway it is somewhat more tart than sweet and extremely juicy. This would be an excellent choice for those of you who home juice as it would make a great base to start with.
It is a fruit worth trying despite it's appearance and name.
The uglis fruit is easy to peel and you can either eat it like an orange, or use a spoon like you would for a grapefruit.
