Adventures in the Produce Aisle

Last weekend while grocery shopping Hanna and I came across Ugli fruit.
We couldn't resist so we bought ourselves an Ugli fruit and discovered despite its appearance it was delicious - a nice sweet citrus type of fruit that was very juicy.

After a little research we learned Ugli fruit is a type of tangelo, a citrus fruit grown in Jamaica. Tangelos are a hybrid cross between a tangerine and a pomelo. We ate it like a grapefruit but you can also eat it like an orange.

The next time you are at the grocery store go on a little adventure and see what treasures you can find. Try something new, you might just find a new favourite!

Right now local grocery stores have an assortment of tropical exotic fruit. Have you ever tried a dragon fruit, star fruit or prickly pear?
