This citrus fruit, bred by crossing a grapefruit with an orange or tangerine, is grapefruit sized but loose skinned like a tangerine, with pinkish orange flesh that's sweeter than grapefruit and nearly seedless. The skin is thick, rough, and puffy; it may be an even or blotchy greenish yellow to orange. Ugli fruit originated in Jamaica, but is now grown in Florida.
