This citrus looking ugly fruit is just that, a citrus fruit from Jamaica that looks ugly but it is full of great nutrition and looks beautiful inside.
Ugli Fruit is very low in calories, has an orangey, lemony taste that is very different, and has lots of great vitamins such as Vitamin A and more than 100% of your daily needs of vitamin C.
Plus it is a good source of calcium, iron, fiber, and it also has some protein.
Ugli Fruit helps prevent cardiovascular disease and strokes and also promotes health tissue formation especially that of the gums.
Ugli Fruit also seems to protect people from kidney stone formation… so if you are one of those people who get kidney stones you might want to start eating one or two Ugli Fruit a week.
Ugli Fruit also lowers blood pressure, is full of great antioxidants, and Ugli is Anti-allergic too!
Ugli Fruit is sweet and can be used in salads or stir fried, can be made into sherbet, and juiced and mixed with rum and a few mint leaves Ugli Fruit tastes great!
You can find Ugli Fruit at Asian Markets and anywhere they import fruits from Jamaica.
