Subject: Re: [CHAT] Buddha's Hand

Since the one I bought [and planted this morning] has seven immature
<br>fruit, I can probably answer your question next citrus season
[winter]. <br>The fruits, when ripe, are roughly the size of a small
grapefruit. The <br>immature fruit on my new tree are about the size of
store-bought lemons <br>now. There is always the chance that the tree
will be shocked by the <br>planting and abort the fruit, but I don't
think that's too likely.<br><br>On Friday, May 14, 2004, at 05:16 AM,

just curious, so<br>&gt; if you know anyone who's ever tried it and they

sure. But I'll have find one first. The one's I took the picture<br>&gt;
&lt;br&gt;of were at Selby--and they're too big to steal. Be like trying
to<br>&gt; &lt;br&gt;pocket a grapefruit. Maybe the Sarasota farmers'
market would have<br>&gt; some &lt;br&gt;of the fruit. Dunno, I'll
look.&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;When I found those <br>&gt; trees<br>&gt; at
Wal-Mart, I should've bought one. The &lt;br&gt;chances of them having
<br>&gt; that<br>&gt; tree again are probably zero and none.
&lt;br&gt;Maybe ECHO has some [they're<br>&gt; listed in their catalog].
If I get a &lt;br&gt;chance next weekend [not<br>&gt;
day-after-tomorrow], I'll drive down and look. &lt;br&gt;B

ut if I get one,<br>&gt; you'll probably have to wait a year or two for

Hand&lt;br&gt;&gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt;<br>&gt; Short answer is I don't know.
Never tasted one that I was aware of.<br>&gt; But&lt;br&gt;&gt;
&lt;br&gt;since it's described as a citron, I assume it is
candied<br>&gt; and it&lt;br&gt;&gt; tastes &lt;br&gt;something like a
kumquat. Most of the &quot;fruit&quot; in<br>&gt;
commercial&lt;br&gt;&gt; fruitcake &lt;br&gt;turns out to be citron
[although not<br>&gt; necessarily Buddha's&lt;br&gt;&gt; hand citron]
&lt;br&gt;that has been candied and<br>&gt; dyed various&lt;br&gt;&gt;
colors.&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;On Tuesday, May 11, 2004, at 06:33

Interesting about Wal-Mart,&lt;br&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;
Fran.&lt;br&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Not too long
ago, I found a Buddha's Hand<br>&gt; citron&lt;br&gt;&gt; at our
local&lt;br&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Wal-Mart.&lt;br&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; In
fact there were<br>&gt; three of them&lt;br&gt;&gt; [grafted; 7 gallon;
under $20], and&lt;br&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; there<br>&gt; aren't that
many&lt;br&gt;&gt; more-sophisticated nurseries that even<br>&gt;
know&lt;br&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; what&l

t;br&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; they&lt;br&gt;&gt;
are!&lt;br&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; My take is
<br>&gt; that<br>&gt; if you know plants well enough to&lt;br&gt;&gt;
recognize healthy&lt;br&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; from<br>&gt; ill, you can
often find some amazing&lt;br&gt;&gt; selections in places<br>&gt;
like&lt;br&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Kmart, Home Depot, Target, and
Lowes,&lt;br&gt;&gt; as well<br>&gt; Wal-Mart. So I
tour&lt;br&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; their&lt;br&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; garden
centers&lt;br&gt;&gt; whenever <br>&gt; I<br>&gt; go there--and
sometimes I make tours of &lt;br&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; &lt;br&gt;&gt;
<br>&gt; them&lt;br&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt;<br>&gt; all,
ju&lt;br&gt;&gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt; st to see what's
up.&lt;br&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;

check&lt;br&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;
because&lt;br&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; you never know what's going to be
there from week<br>&gt; to&lt;br&gt;&gt; week. When

get&lt;br&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; something good<br>&gt;

me&lt;br&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;
will&lt;br&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt; buy all they have!
