In case you missed it, this year is my first crop of a citrus called Buddha's Hand. It is the oldest known citron and has been propagated for over 3000 years. Pretty incredible. This wee, inch long babe, started in May of this year.
And this is the whopper it became.
Tried to scale it with an egg. It is so ugly, it's beautiful and it smells of heaven; a fruity, perfumed scent.
This is the dicey part. It has no pulp and thus is used for a candied peel. I tried it like this, but it had too much moisture. A fail or perhaps a learning curve. Then I decided it would have to be stripped as peel without the pith which would work much better. So I tried it and bleck. If I want something sugary, I'll have a Snickers instead. I'll just enjoy smelling and growing it.
This is one of my Meyer lemon trees. I have a greenhouse full of them and other types of citrus. Now comes the hard part, juicing all of them and most are ready to go.
