Students may take two fruit servings with each meal. They must take at least one.
Ugli Fruit should be served on Tuesday.
The ugli fruit was discovered in a Jamaican pasture in 1917 by an estate owner named G.G.R. Sharp. Sharp’s subsequent pollination efforts involved repeatedly regrafting the fruit with the fewest seeds onto the sour orange. By the 1930s he was exporting the resultant fruit to England and Canada and the ugli first arrived in New York in 1942.
The ugli has a mix of characteristics from other citruses: it’s almost the same size as a grapefruit, but with a milder and sweeter taste. The sections inside are fibrous, and its base has a slight protrusion that looks like an outie navel. Meanwhile, its thick, yellow-green skin is so loose that it practically rolls out when you begin peeling it off.
