Citron or Buddha's Hand
My MIL brought a paper that says, " Buddha's hand's ancestor, the ordinary citron, is one of the three original species of citrus. This prodigy is a genetic mutation that arose many centuries ago in the citron's homeland, within the lower Himalayan mountains. It was introduced to California in the late 19th century grown in gardens and groves". They also use them in Bonsai.
We picked a Eggplant this weekend. It really has grown so huge. I think it might be too tough to use but it is really a nice eggplant. The plant really likes the cooler weather, but if it frosts soon it will kill it. It has about 5 really nice eggplants on the bush.
I hope you are having a nice Monday.
