Buddha's Hand citron produces deep lemon yellow fruits that vary in shape and size. The fruit splits at the opposite end of the tree's stem forming segments that have a wild finger-like appearance, hence its given name. Its flesh is void of juice, pulp and seeds, rendering it inedible. The culinary virtues lie within its oily rind which is powerfully fragrant and aromatic and utilized for its zesting properties. Buddha's Hand citron flavor is described as a unique blend of bitter and sweet, similar to kumquats and tangerines, with lavender notes and a bright lemon highlight.
The peak season for Buddha's Hand Citron is late fall to early winter.
The Buddha’s Hand citron is also commonly known as Fingered citron, and botanically classified as Citrus medica variety sarcodactylis.
