Buddha's Hand

Definition: Buddha's Hand


Buddha's Hand
A fragrant citrus fruit that is usually described as "lemon-like," even though there is no juicy pulp beneath the rind. It is bright yellow in color and has 5-20 long yellow "fingers." It's used primarily for its zest, as it does not have bitter white pith, but can also make a great marmalade. Buddha's hands are one of the oldest citrus fruits and gets their name from the resemblance closed fingered hands have to praying hands.
