Description

Despite its unique shape, Buddha’s Hand is considered a typical member of the citron species. While one variety is generally common to the United States, there are over a dozen varieties found in China, ranging in size, fruit shape, color, etc. The rind is yellow and highly fragrant when ripe, and the interior of the fruit is solid white pith, with no pulp or seeds. The pith is not bitter however, unlike other citrus, so the whole fruit may be used in cooking. And while it will yield no juice, Buddha’s Hand is particularly flavorful and may be used in savory and sweet dishes alike.
