POTD: April 22, 2012
Mom, Laura and I partook in eating the Jamaican Ugli Fruit. It actually had very little taste at all, though the small taste it had tasted to me like a tangerine.
The fruit has its own website: http://www.ugli.com/index.html
Here's some information on the fruit from the website:
UGLI® is the registered trade mark under which Cabel Hall Citrus Ltd. markets its brand of tangelos from Jamaica.
This tangelo is a variety of citrus fruit grown exclusively in Jamaica and exported by Trout Hall Ltd. to markets all over the world. It was discovered growing wild in Jamaica over 80 years ago and has been developed by the family of the owners of Trout Hall Ltd. into the commercial variety now in production. The original tree is believed to have been a hybrid formed from the Seville orange, the grapefruit and the tangerine families. Since 1924 when it was first discovered several improved scions have been used by Trout Hall Ltd. to produce the current variety which is so popular.
When buying the UGLI® brand of tangelos do not be misled by their appearance, you will love their sweet and tangy flavour.
