Info

The citrus with strange and wonderful fruit that does, indeed, look like ancient pictures of the hand of Buddha. A charming small tree, to only 6' tall or so, with shiny, slightly serrated leaves, purplish in new growth and somewhat lumpy and rumpled looking in maturity. From early spring onward, purple blushed buds open to white, scented flowers followed, in winter, by the singularly entertaining fruit. Though without pulp or juice, the abundant oils provide lots of citrus aroma, while the outer rind is wonderful for cooking or for candied peel. Loves sun, rich soil, and moisture. Hates cold, only tolerating low temperatures in the 30s °F, USDA zone 10. So grow outside in summer and bring indoors well before the first frost. And enjoy!
