Description

The origin of the citron ‘Buddha’s Hand’ (Citrus medica 'Digitata', Citrus medica var. sarcodactylis) is most likely East or Southeast Asia. In China and Japan, it is still widely grown and used for religious ceremonies. No wonder, since the shape of its fruit is not all that is unusual: the peel smells very intensely like a multi-faceted sweet-floral perfume that you would normally not attribute to a citrus fruit. And this without having to touch or even rub them. The dried peel provides a good scent in cupboards and keeps away clothes pest. The unusual fruit split into what looks like 'fingers'. Usually, the fruit develops clearly more than 5 'tips', giving it a bizarre and unique appearance, as no fruit is identical to another. The flowers are large (3.5-4 cm) and their buds, like the young leaves, are covered with a purple sheen. When cultivated in containers, main flowering usually occurs in spring or late summer, although flowers may also appear in summer. 'Buddha's Hand' shows its family ties to the heat-loving citrons by its habit. It forms vigorous branches that branch moderately and does not grow very tall. This makes it well-suited to container growing.
