Buddha`s Hand Fruit, Ever try this fruit?

I went to Garden Grove with my parents and we were walking down the streets visiting each store [they had streets full of fruits/flowers/plants & stuff you would buy for Chinese New Year] and this year, I saw a whole bunch of <strong>Buddha`s Hand</strong> fruits. This fruit is also known as Fingered Citron or in Japanese Bushukan. I never seen this fruit at all and I asked my mom and she told me it`s a fruit but with no juice or anything inside-- you don`t even eat it technically because it`s used to be displayed during Chinese New Year [it`s a symbol of happiness, wealth & longevity]. This has also been used as a perfume years ago and still can today because it smells good and lemony. However in Western society today, you can zest the skin or slice thinly on the inner white pith to put over fish or salads.

<strong>Have you ever tried this fruit or seen it before?</strong> It`s pretty unique and does look like hands!
