Buddha’s Hand citron
Citrus medica var. sarcodactylis is a citrus medica variety, known by the common name of “Buddha’s Hand citron“.
Its typical shape is obtained in the early stage when its segments are partitioned. In fact, each segment tends to develop as a separate unit. The result is a shape that is reminiscent of a human hand.
Asian people have given the fruit the name by which it is commonly known: Buddha’s Hand citron.
The fruit has a thick, wrinkled or lumpy skin and contains only a small amount of acidic flesh, and is often seedless. It is very perfumed and is mainly used to perfume rooms and personal items such as clothing.
The skin of the fruit can be candied. It is often used for its beauty as an ornament for various dishes.
