Buddha’s Hand Citron

I was offered this intriguing fruit at a cookery class that I facilitated last weekend in Canberra.

Buddha's Hand Citron #1:

It’s known as Buddha’s Hand Citron, or fingered cirtron [Citrus medica var. sarcodactylis] and is also known as in Japan as bushukan.

Buddha's Hand Citron #2:

The origin of the Buddha’s hand plant can be traced back to Northeastern India and China.

Buddha's Hand Citron #3:

I am thinking of making candied citron out of it, since it is purely peel without any fruit or juice inside, but not at all bitter.


I’ll keep you posted on the outcome.
