BUDDHA HAND




Lucky me got to get my hands on this Buddha Hand plant. Mind you, it isn't that easy to find. Lemon, lime and kaffir lime plants are easily available but not this particular type of citron. So when I saw it on sale at the market, I quickly bought it. I will be planting it in the Herb Garden soon.
For your information, Buddha's hand (Citrus medica var. sarcodactylis) or fingered citron, is a fragrant citron variety whose fruit is segmented into finger-like sections. This plant is said to have originated from Northeastern India or China.

Saya bernasib baik kerana dapat beli pokok Buddha Hand.  Untuk makluman semua, pokok ini bukan mudah dibeli seperti pokok lemon, limau kasturi dan limau purut.  Bila saya nampak pokok ini dijual di pasar, saya beli satu untuk ditanam di Taman Herba kolej.
Buddha Hand (Citrus medica var. sarcodactylis) atau fingered citron berasal dari keluarga citron.  Pokok ini berasal dari India atau Cina.
