U is for Ugli Fruit – Day 21

Say what now? Well I was kinda stuck for a ‘u’ fruit or veg and turns out there’s ugli fruit! A Jamaican cross breed of a tangerine and grapefruit πŸ˜‰ An ugly fruit with a delicious secret =) (old wrinkly green till ripen time)

Fellow blogger at the Kitchen has a great post of the ins and outs of ugli fruit πŸ˜‰ But what struck me the most was – it’s another heart shaped fruit! Now strawberry has a partner. A fancier orange with a difference!

Fun facts about ugli fruit

πŸ˜‰ It had 80 years in the wilderness before its discovery!
πŸ˜‰ Ripened on the tree but even if it stayed green, it’s still just as sweet and juicy.
πŸ˜‰ Crazy overly price!
