Buddha Hand Citron 佛手柑

  • Citrus medica var. sarcodactylis, or the fingered citron, is an unusually shaped citron variety.
  • Its fruit is segmented into finger-like sections, resembling those seen on representations of Buddha.
  • It is called Buddha’s hand in Chinese (佛手柑), Japanese (仏手柑), Korean (불수감) and Vietnamese (Phật thủ).
  • The different cultivars and variations of this citron variety form a gradient from “open-hand” types with outward-splayed segments to “closed-hand” types.
  • There are also half-fingered fruits, in which the basal side is united and the apical side fingered.
  • The origin of this kind of citron is commonly traced back to the Far East, probably northeastern India or China, where most domesticated citrus fruits originate.
  • Perfect for this festive season!
