When I went to my favorite bakery yesterday, I found funny thing placed (or rather proudly decorated, haha) on the checkout counter. I've never seen the citrus called sarcodactylis (bushukann,仏手柑; Buddha's hand plant). As it is originated in Asia, kind of a surprise not knowing it. I was told that it was presented to the store from the customer. I wonder if any of you knew this kind of sacred citrus.
*I'll quote the part of Wikipedia page and this is the image-page
Buddha's hand fruit is very fragrant and is used predominantly by the Chinese and Japanese for perfuming rooms and personal items, such as clothing. The fruit may be given as a religious offering in Buddhist temples. According to tradition, Buddha prefers the "fingers" of the fruit to be in a position where they resemble a closed rather than open hand, as closed hands symbolize to Buddha the act of prayer
The owner kindly allowed me take pictures.
This is the picture from PC that you can see how they grow.
So sorry my rather frequent posting, hehe; I may take a short break considering the sticky cold. Hope your weather is good. A bit cold here but not snowing like Tokyo causing traffic trouble (which is so unusual) ☃
