If it was possible for a lemon and an octopus to mate that is probably what their kid would look like.
I don't think they are used for eating. They probably don't contain that much edible flesh inside and I've heard that they are bitter and pretty acidic as well. I think that people buy them for their pleasant aeroma and for the fact that they look so weird that they are an interesting conversation piece. (I almost bought some for a recent family reunion because I wanted to bring a lot of beautiful and exotic fruit and I thought that they would be good for decoration purposes, but I was afaid that one of my relatives might actually try to eat one of them so I didn't get them.)
Buddha's Hands smell great! (not to mention look awesome) They really diffuse their scent throughout a room... sweet n lemony.
Like a flower that doesn't need to be put in water and lasts longer.
I've heard of a fancy restaurant slicing them very thin and combining with thinly sliced fennel for a salad (with olive oil and salt of course).
yeah , in my area of south france we sometimes cultivate it mainly to flavour other dishes...i sometimes eat one finger or two but it is very intense taste...a lot of citrus essential oil content and according to me this couldn't be anything else but a condiment!
but i have in garden , so beautifull!!
Have not know of this.
