Speechless - Buddha's Hand

By

Photo Taken at Central Market in SouthLake, TX. Apparantly it's a fruit, a fragrant citron that is traced to Asia. Unfortunately, I lost my appetite.

Patricia, it is safe to say this will not be your centerpiece on the Feager dinner table for Thanksgiving!  ^_~

I love all your comments. Maybe it should have been called Medusa Fingers. In any case, I still couldn't taste it. It was priced at $9.99 a pound and if it was 9 cents a pound or free, I still wouldn't taste it. John, you cracked me up referencing finger food. When it comes to being open minded with edible food, I'm not open minded. Also, Bruce, you're right, it will never be on my dinner table either.

I'm noticing more and more produce that I've never seen or heard of before here in Texas.

Patricia, I don't think that looks very appetizing. It looks like some kind of sea creature.

Buddha had a few more fingers on his hand than I do!  I like Rob's #7 answer too!  We have an Outback Restaurant near my home, and Bloomin' Onions are a favorite on their menu.

Hi Patricia, I didn't associate to anything , strangely, but I will say it has struck a fascination and love it that you took this photo. I had never heard of this before and glad to at least see it.

Hi Patricia,

Not very appetizing and I don't think I would even want to try it but thanks for sharing. When I hear about it someday, I will have a visual of it. Yuk!

I am surprised I have not seen it in CHOPPED. I have seen some interesting  ingredients on that show.

Ya'll continue to crack me up. I remember a saying that goes like this:

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT

I wouldn't be able to eat it if somebody paid me!!!

Hi Patricia,

There are a lot of Asian foods now being grown in the U.S. But this better taste pretty darn good or there will be none in my house. Like you said I had lost my appetite.

Have a great day in Flower Mound Texas.

Best, Clint McKie

Chef Dolores would be checking for recipes!

Buddha's Hand Citrus - to 3 feet tall, Also called Buddhist hand citrus, this unique house plant citrus bears elongated fruit that is segmented into finger-like sections. It's very unusual and quite the conversation piece. It's thought that this is the oldest citrus in cultivation. The fruit is inedible, but the rind is often candied.

Patricia,

We have seen it here, and have written about it, as has Toni Wiedman.  It is interesting how we all have different reaction to the way food and plants look.  A
