Buddah's Hand

Who knew?
This is a Buddah's Hand, a member of the citron family.  According to Wikipedia:
The fruit may be given as a religious offering in Buddhisttemples. According to tradition, Buddha prefers the "fingers" of the fruit to be in a position where they resemble a closed rather than open hand, as closed hands symbolize to Buddha the act of prayer.
