I had never seen Ugli fruit in any of the stores in my area until this past week. I wanted to try it but I have no idea how to pick a good one. Does anyone know how to tell if Ugli fruit is ripe or fresh? Thanks in advance.

ugli fruit = Uniq fruit®

This grapefruit-mandarin cross looks like a grapefruit in an ill-fitting suit. It's sweet and juicy, though, and simple to eat since the peel comes off easily and the fruit pulls apart into tidy segments that are virtually seedless.

Americans pronounce the name "ugly," but in Jamaica, where it's grown, it's pronounced "HOO-glee." Some marketers have tried calling it "Uniq fruit®," but the name hasn't caught on much.

Ugli fruit are available from December through April. Most specimens are much uglier than the one pictured here, but don't let that deter you. Select fruits that are heavy for their size, and that give a little when you press them.

Substitutes: grapefruit (not as sweet) OR orange (smaller)
