The Buddha finger is a member of the citrus family, although it does not resemble other citrus. Buddha fingers are native to North-eastern India. The fruit is segmented into finger-like sections and is bright yellow. Its long yellow fingers can number from 5 to 20. The fruit has a thick, aromatic peel and only a small amount of white flesh. The white flesh is not juicy and contains no seeds. Unlike most citrus fruits, Buddha fingers do not have a bitter core.
