Ugli Fruit
What do you get when you mix a grapefruit, orange, and tangerine together? One ugli fruit (yes, that’s the actual name)! This exotic hybrid is grown in Jamaica, and can be found in the US from December to April. Like the rest of the citrus family, the ugli fruit provides a juicy shot of immune-boosting Vitamin C. And don’t be fooled by its less than attractive rind — the sweet flesh (on the inside) is a refreshing alternative to its orange and grapefruit relatives. For a simple breakfast option, enjoy ugli fruit the same way as a grapefruit, or add it to yogurt or cottage cheese for a interesting twist.
