Blogging from A to Z Challenge - U

How many of you have heard of the UGLI® fruit? I truly hope I'm not the only one who didn't know about this Jamaican tangelo. UGLI is the registered trademark under which Cabel Hall Citrus Ltd. markets this fruit. I honestly had no idea, which is why my photo shows only the "U" capitalized and not the whole word.

According to UGLI's website, this tangelo is a variety of citrus fruit that is exported to markets all over the world. You can peel it and eat it like a tangerine or slice it in half and scoop out the insides like you would a grapefruit. This tangelo is used in cooking, but you can also drink the juice. Like other citrus fruit, it is an excellent source of Vitamin C and fiber.

You can find some recipes on the UGLI website.

This post is part of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge.

I have seen them, but haven't tried one yet. I like all its cousins, so I should. I'm trying to visit all the A-Z Challenge Blogs in April. My alphabet is at myqualityday.blogspot.com
