Description:
Citrus medica var. sarcodactylis is a unique citron known as the Buddha's hand lemon. It bears striking, bright yellow fruit with variable fingers. Every fruit is different. The thick, intensely flavourful rind of the deep yellow fruit is candied like orange peel or used as a delicious seasoning. It can also often be seen as an offering on the alters of Buddhist temples. All of our citrus are grafted onto C-35 citrange, trifoliate orange, or other semi-dwarfing rootstock which confer good hardiness and production while reducing overall tree size.
