Nov. 3, 2010 - Day 237

This very odd looking fruit is called Buddha hand, or fingered citron. It's thought to have originated in India and to be one of the oldest known citrus fruits. When I first saw it  I imagined that some starfish got mixed up with the lemons at the store. (Michael's been telling me about what he's learning in biology.)


  1. I've never seen that before! Did you try it? How do you eat it? Kinda pricey, isn't it? lol

  2. I didn't try it - it did seem a bit pricey. I guess you pay for novelty. There's info on the Interwebs about how to use it.
