I can't start my day without a tall glass of hesperidium juice. I can't down a tequila shot without a slice of hesperidium to chase it. Man, I accidentally scraped off some of the pith from this hesperidium and now my citrus marinade's all bitter. Awh heck, we gave it away. 

Hesperidium is the scientific term for any fruit or vegetable with a leathery, generally inedible outer rind (try drinking it, though) which houses juicy sections of edible material — generally citrus fruits.
