This ancient citrus variety originated in the East and has been grown for centuries in China, Japan and Indo-China as an ornamental and for its fragrance and medicinal values.

It is the unique shape of the fruit that makes this citrus a real eye catcher and conversation topic in your garden. The flowers and fruit are exquisitely fragrant and often used to perfume rooms and clothing. Buddha's Hand fruit contains no juice or flesh.

It is only the fragrant rind that is the valued part of the fruit. The fragrant rind is used for many culinary purposes, especially in Asian & Thai cuisine. The tree is compact and shrub-like and well suited to container growing in warm sunny sheltered patios, courtyards, entrances. It is a frost sensitive citrus variety and a warm sunny well sheltered position is essential for successful growing.

Subtropical warm climate citrus such as Buddha's Hand tend to go a bit yellowish and tatty looking over the NZ winter, but soon as the warm weather starts they put on good fresh lush growth and flowers. This can be avoided by moving the plant into a glasshouse or covered patio, courtyard over winter.

For successful growing and fruiting, plant or tub up your Citrus tree so it can enjoy maximum warmth and sunshine, protection from cold strong winds and hard winter frosts. They enjoy an organically enriched, moisture retentive but good draining fertile soil. Citrus trees are self fertile and very fruitfully rewarding from almost the second year of planting.

Full cultural growing information provided.

You are bidding on one healthy new season grafted tree in a pb6.5 standing aprox 60-70cm tall from the base of the bag to the top of the plant.

Happy to combine with any of my other listings.
