{ugli fruit AKA “uniq fruit”}

19 Mar

have you ever seen or heard of an ugli fruit?!

uglifruit-1

this is an ugli fruit.  also known as “uinq” fruit, because apparently the name “ugli” wasn’t very PC.

i mean, either way i think it’s beautiful. look at that colour!

ugli {uniq} fruit is from jamaica and is similar to a grapefruit.  it’s more like a pomelo but the skin isn’t quite as thick.  the flesh of an ugly fruit is super sweet and juicy.  i add mine in smoothies as well as eat them as a snack. when throwing it into my vitamix, i keep the white part included – it’s loaded with extra fiber.  or just juice it – yummy!

the tree that produces this fruit has been around since the early 1900s!  their season is just about over, so grab yours today!  you can find ugli fruit at many health food stores like whole foods market nationwide.
