Some Vegies and Herbs

It was never really meant for eating. Buddhists grew it for its Fragrance only, which it why is was replicated in porcelain as a temple or altar fruit; of which I have many. I have collected Buddhas’ hand porcelains for 40 years. Smell, don’t eat. :partying_face:. The fragrance was pleasing. Which it is. Look up Citron in American cooking and you will find the lumpy lemon that is not Buddah’s Hand.

That’s the appearance of the Seville cultivar of Citron. Its predecessor(s) were widely grown in the middle east and have a role in both Jewish and Muslim cultures. It also came from China and is one of the fundamental genetic forms of Citrus.

Anyway, my butternuts are finishing. I could do another crop but we don’t eat that much.
