Ugli Fruit

This Jamaican fruit is a cross between a grapefruit and a mandarin orange.  It is about the size of a smallish grapefruit but is sweeter.  The American pronunciation is "ugly" -  pretty much describing its appearance.  In the U.S. it is more well known as a crossword answer [clue - tropical citrus fruit] than as a bona fide member of the citrus clan.

Ugli Fruit, Cut

‘UGLI® fruit’ is a trademark name for this fruit that originated in Jamaica, most likely as a natural hybrid. It supposedly originated near Brown’s Town in 1914, and was cultivated by F. G. Sharp at Trout Hall, and marketed by his son in the early 1930s.
