What do you guys think? I'm so excited to use it.
I saw those in stock at the grocer last week. They smell great but beyond the zest I have no idea what to do with one.
Well that's definitely interesting... I'm with you though, I have no idea what to do with it at all...
I've only ever used it for the zest. There's really no pulp to speak of. The zest is fantastic though. We candied some last year before Christmas, and it was great.
If I'm not mistaken, the Buddha's Hand is a source for candied Citron
You are correct, sir.
Chayote is also known as Buddha's Hand in China.
It looks like an alien lemon. I bet it smells great. Post picks of what you make please.
Kuan I never used it what primarily is it used for ? Where is it from ?
Really? Chayote (we call it mirliton) is a gourd, and buddha's hand is citrus. I don't think there is any link between them. You sure about this?
Yes chayote is known in China as buddha's hand melon.
What it looks like to me is a plant that if you don't watch out will eat you!!!
Someone put one of those in our building courtyard and i get the creeps every time i pass by.
It does look alien.
