Did you Know?


  • ...that the citrus, "Ugli Fruit", is also native to Jamaica?

    The fruit was first bred in Brown's Town Jamaica in 1914, hybridizing a grapefruit and a tangerine.

    It got its name from the unsightly appearance of its rough, wrinkled, greenish yellow skin, wrapped loosely around the orange pulpy citrus inside.

  • ...that in sections of rural Jamaica, after the birth of a child, the placenta is buried?

    A sapling is planted on top of it. That will eventually be awarded to the child and called the "baby tree".

Well, now you know!
