Re: Buddha's Hand Citrus

Jim: Looking forward to the experience, when and if that fruit matures.
Will dutifully report the results to the list, of course, with pleasure.
And thanks for the compliment on my kids...they're pretty good about
trying new things. Should see them with portabella mushrooms now that
I've introduced them to those! The girls loved them. Mark has decided he
prefers the more mellow taste of button mushrooms. :-)

When [if] the fruits on my new tree mature, I will send one of them to
<br>Melody and she will let us know about edibility. I will also send
her <br>recipes for candying the peel, and she can include that in her
