  1. Wow, Biggles — those lemons look like tiny mutant dinosaurs! Ive never seen anything like that. I hope you find out what caused them to burst into such eccentric shapes.

  2. I believe the odd shapes are caused by a type of fruit fly, setting up house!
    look for webbing in the creases of the formations….

  3. Hey Chef,
    Ya know, I trimmed that tree down pretty tight earlier this year and am not getting the crazy fruit anymore. Not sure if that’s a good thing or not.

    • Hi Mary,

      Yeah, totally hip to the Buddha’s Hand citrus. But I was lead to believe it came from a specific tree. One of my friends has a tree that produces nothing but those. The ones you see in this post, came off a regular old lemon tree. In any case, they’re pretty darned cool looking.
