Buddha’s Hand is a variety of citrus that traces its origin to northern India. It’s name comes from the shape of the “fingers” of the fruit. It is thought to be the first citrus fruit introduced into Europe by the Greeks or Romans. The fruit can be described as lemon-like, with finger-like sections clustered around the stem end of the fruit. Buddha’s Hand contains little flesh or juice and is seedless, but the white pith under the skin is not bitter and may be sliced along with the skin and incorporated into recipes. The whole fruit is very fragrant.
