Researchers with UC Riverside have announced the new hybrid called "The Valentine." It's part pummelo, part mandarin, and part ruby hybrid.

So why "The Valentine"? Researchers say it's because it resembles a red heart when it's cut and turned upside down.

The new fruit is expected to reach store shelves next winter.
