Description: Don't let its unassuming exterior fool you, because this mottled green citrus is truly delectable. Its size rivals that of a grapefruit, with a milder, much sweeter taste, fibrous sections inside and a slight protrusion at the base that looks like an "outie" navel. The Ugli fruit, however, was purportedly discovered in a Jamaican pasture in 1917. Now believed to be a natural cross between a mandarin orange and a grapefruit.

Description: The large, exceptionally delicious, round, seedless fruits are rich in flavour and have a slightly pebbled orange rind that is easily peeled. Early in maturity, 10 months, at its best in the late autumn to winter months, but will hold on the tree for several months beyond maturity and stores well. The fruit is medium yellow and has a thick rind that comes off easily. The segments are seedless, loose, very juicy and very sweet. The sugar to acid balance is on the sugary side but has enough acids to make a pleasing citrus flavour. The texture is firm but melting. All in all one of the best oranges to eat fresh.
