A Budhha's Hand Citron

Fingered Citron or Buddha's Finger is native to the foothills of the Himalayas. The Greeks and the Romans used the fruit as a source of fragrance and its leaves as moth repellant. Orientals and Mediterranean countries used them as perfumes and room freshener.  Also used as a religious ceremonial ornament. 

Took this picture at Kunming Airport with Sekibuhchhuak. It's an unusual fruit that attracts my attention so I thought i might just share it.
