Buddha's Hand Citron Tree
Buddha’s hand tree is citron variety that produces fruit with long “fingers” or carpels that can reach up to 12 inches in length. Its skin resembles that of a lemon, but the fruit contains no juice or pulp. Instead, its flesh is packed with essential oils, making this fruit one of the most fragrant citrus varieties available.
Buddha’s hand tree exhibits shrub-like growth, reaching only 6-10 feet in height. Its fragrant, white/purple blossoms, along with its eye-catching fruit makes buddha’s hand a great ornamental tree for container or in-ground growth. Commonly associated with good luck in many Asian counties, buddha’s hand makes a great gift for all occasions.
Buddha’s hand is extremely frost sensitive and can only be grown outdoors year-round where there is no risk of frost.
