Now I Can Say I've Tried It: Ugli Fruit

I'm a sucker for citrus. As much as I like to stock up on local produce, sometimes I can't resist the call of the wild. In this case it was an ugly Ugli. Well, a Uniq ugli to be exact. When I picked this 5" baby up, it had a label on it that said Uniq, which is apparently one of the growers of Ugli fruit. The Ugli grow wild in Jamaica (really now!) and is said to be a cross citrusy cross between an orange, a tangerine and a grapefruit.

The thick skin peels away so easily revealing the unexpectedly orange insides. Super juicy and sweet like and orange with just a slight puckery tang of tart. Delicious!
