Product of California.

In the Chinese culture, Buddha’s hand is a symbol of happiness, longevity, and good fortune; the fruit is a traditional gift during Chinese New Year. The Buddha’s hand citron has long segments that resemble fingers with all white pith on the inside and fragrant zest on the outside that can be yellow or green. Buddha’s hand lacks juice and pulp, and often lacks seeds.

Use the Buddha’s hand for its fragrant zest, which is similar to lemon though much more intense. The zest can be removed in long strips, which are great curled in the bottom of a martini glass, candied or stored in white wine vinegar for use in sauces and vinaigrettes.

Choose fruit that are not browning, soft or limp in away. Buddha’s Hand should have an overwhelming fragrance and will store in a cool, dry place for two weeks or refrigerated for up to four weeks.

The following prohibit the shipment of any citrus into their state: Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, and Hawaii.

This item is perishable and must ship at least 2nd day.
