It's a Buddha-hand! I learned that last night on the Iron Chef. Ahh, educational television at it's best.

I can honestly say I've never seen one before yesterday.

Oh I've seen this at the farmers' market.
A citrus fruit called someone's hand or someone's finger.
Don't remember the exact name.

Glad to be the fist to guess. I guess this is the Octopus fruit from the citrus family also known as Buddha's Hand. Your blog is so lovely. I love your food pictures.

It's a lemon - a Bhudda's hand lemon perhaps? Can't recall exactly what they are called in these parts, but it's a citrus fruit for sure.

Lovely image, Suganya!

Oh my, when I saw this I got scared at first::)) Looks like a lot of fingers tangled up together:) But must be some type of root vegetable? Not sure though. I am giving up:) and curious about the correct answer:)

To be more precise it is a Fingered Citron a.k.a Gobin Fingers, Buddha's hand and Buddha's Fingers
Am I right?
