Hand of Buddha

Fruiting Tree in 5ltr pot

All year


Noun flower 889434 green


A lemon of myth and mystery, often thought to have originally brought to China from India. The remarkable fruits have long finger type sections, reminiscent of a (rather twisted) hand and are something to see. With little or no juice, they are prized for their surprisingly sweet and aromatic rind. Perfect for candying or as a twist in your Martini. This is the hungriest Citrus variety and loves to be fed.
