Esto es lo que encontré en un diccionario monolingüe:
Quisiera saber si existe un nombre para este fruto en castellano.
"Ug·li , Trademark.
a large, sweet variety of tangelo, of Jamaican origin, having rough, wrinkled, yellowish skin."
Y esto en el Oxford Superlex:
"ugli orange=fruto cítrico de piel rugosa, cruce de pomelo y mandarina)
Explanation: UGLI® is the registered trade mark under which Cabel Hall Citrus Ltd. markets its brand of tangelos grown in Jamaica.
This tangelo is a variety of citrus fruit grown exclusively in Jamaica and exported by Trout Hall Ltd. to markets all over the world. It was discovered growing wild in Jamaica over 70 years ago and has been developed by the family of the owners of Trout Hall Ltd. into the commercial variety now in production in Jamaica. Its parentage combines the best characteristics of the tangerine, grapefruit and seville orange.
When buying the UGLI® brand of tangelos do not be misled by their appearance, you will love their sweet tangy flavour.
