Fruit Trees > Citrus Trees > Citron - Buddhas Hand
Buddha's hand are one of the oddities of the citrus family as unlike other well known citrus they're not eaten fresh. This fruit looks like an old shriveled hand with a thick uneven tightly adhered rind. Low on juice they can be acidic or sweet. Citrons are grown today for the specialty market, their prime use being as candied peel or for use in religious ceremonies. The Buddha's hand is such an interesting looking and fragrant fruit that it can be used to scent a room, if left on a kitchen bench or in the bathroom it will fill the space with a lovely aromatic citrus scent. The natural room freshener.

Citron - Buddhas Hand

Another random fruit tree purchase...just cant help myself ;)) I always justify my new additions by planting in a very large pot and maintaining my dream of buying a farmlet... Anyhow, back to the 'Buddhas hand'. Its growing beautifully in the pot.

This has always been a scabby looking tree, but has always produced wonderful fruit.  Have to keep up the white oil to it though because scale insects love it.
