A friend for the scary vegetable

A few people told me that the vegetable in the last entry looked like a sea creature and I'd have to agree. I can imagine the fruit pictured above swimming through the ocean with the Italian broccoli. :) This citrus fruit is called "Buddha's Hand" because it does appear to have fingers. It is sometimes given as an offering in Buddhist temples.

We actually saw one of these at the grocery store the other day. Their skin feels a lot like a lemon's. I can imagine one of these crawling across the table! I can also imagine these as part of a Halloween centerpiece. Like the Italian broccoli, I wouldn't want to mess with the design of this food by cutting it up!
