Buddha's Hand is an Ancient Chinese Citron (citrus fruit) also known as fingered citron. it looks like a squid or Cthulhu fruit! It grows on tree like all other citrus fruit. It will grow anywhere that other citrus trees grow. I am in Northern California and my tree is well eastablished and thriving for 4 years now.
have a magnificent tree. I share photos every year when they come into season because it is relatively unknown in US culture and also super expensive. I have seen them at Whole foods for as much as $7.99 per lb.!
