The eye of the beholder...

Whoever said "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" must've seen one of these.

The Uniq fruit--also known as the 'Ugli' or 'Ugly' fruit--is one of those anomalies of the fruit world that truly requires not judging a book by its cover. 

Where most fruits are valued for their unblemished, smooth skins, the Uniqs display--shall we say--a more rugged, rough-and-tumble appearance. Lumpy, bumpy, and bruised are their norm.

But, the really remarkable thing is once you get past the exterior...inside, they look like this:

They are juicy, sweet, and nothing at all like what you're expecting :)

Try one while they're in stock!
