Buddha’s Hand citron varies in size, shape, and appearance. The fingers can be broadly spread in all directions, or they can be tightly layered and closed. The rind of the citron is textured, bumpy, and covered in small oil glands that release an aromatic scent reminiscent of lemon and lavender. These Buddha’s Hand citron from California have a bitter-sweet, bright and floral flavor that is primarily used as a zest for flavoring sweet and savory applications.
