Buddha's Hand

This is a fruit plate that we made for a VIP coming into the hotel today. The yellow finger like fruit is called a Buddha's hand or citron. It is never eaten raw instead it is pressed for its essential oils or candied and used in baking.

The fruit is edible when you candy it or press it for its oil. We did this fruit basket for Bill Gates and his family when they stayed in the hotel. It was a garnish for the fruit tray.
