Why would they call this poor fruit Ugli? Paavum fruit. (Sri pointed this one today.) We laughed for a full minute before feeling profoundly sorry for it.
i also felt the same way when i saw it for the first time- then i was actually conflicted about whether eating it would make it feel better or if i should spare it. such a dilemma! 🙂
And of such dilemmas is life made :P. Maybe it’s pronounced Oogli?
Poor fruit. Maybe in its place of origin ugli means gorgeous or yummy or something. Research required!
Research done- its called ugli ‘cos its kind of misshapen.
That sounds mean, especially as it sounds quite delicious. Haven’t encountered any in my sheltered existence so fa
they DO seem a little sad sitting there 🙂
girl from ipanema: Heh! Do tell how it tasted. Suddenly though I find Ugli fruit everywhere. In all the various supermarkets and department stores!
Revealed: An oogli for Mowgli?
Megha: Yekkov.. what aawww?
dipali: Thank for you doing the research. This is my first glimpse of the ugli fruit. As a tripute to the misshapen – I propose I go and eat one a week.
Rohinton: Oh yes. They were also whining.
