Fascinating Food: Ugli Fruit

Starting a new food category where I put up pictures of food or food related items that amuse me. I must warn you though, I am very very easily amused. =P

Moving on... Here's the first Fascinating Food post. The Ugli fruit which I spotted while grocery shopping in Tesco. Find out more about the Ugli fruit here.



"The skin of the ugli fruit is characteristically scarred, pot marked and puffy. A cross between a mandarin and a pomelo, the flesh is sweet and juicy. Eat like an orange or use to create refreshing sorbets and ice creams"

I was toying with the idea of trying one, but I'm not really a big fan of pomelo so that kind of put me off it. Bad food blogger, I should be more adventurous. Maybe if I spot some again on my next shopping trip. Hee.

Apparently I'm easily amused too because the Ugli fruit made me giggle :)

It is kinda ugly. I'd try it for the heck of it. I like most fruit. Even the ugly ones ;)

Gosh, ugli sure is ugly... The description on Wikipedia sounds interesting, and I wouldn't mind a try; although I don't think they have it in Australia. I wouldn't mind you sending some to me (if customs doesn't confiscate them :P)

ben: hmm if i send it over how will you know if it didn't spoil along the way it'll still look ugly =P
