Buddhas Hand Tree Gift

Citrus medica sarcodactylis


Next day delivery available, just order before 11am Mon to Thurs.

Surprise a loved one with our Buddha’s Hand Tree Gift and the unusual citrus fruits it is named after. Originating in Asia, this plant is given as a religious offering in Buddhist temples. It is said Buddha preferred the ‘fingers’ on the fruit to be closed as they resembled praying hands. This ornamental tree symbolises good fortune, making it a memorable birthday gift and a great conversation starter.

The Buddha’s Hand Tree has dark green leaves and can grow white flowers in any season. The hand-shaped fruit can grow throughout the year and while not edible is esteemed for its aroma and can be used as zest or flavouring. This self-fertile citrus tree thrives indoors in the UK, especially in a cool conservatory or patio.

When you order our Buddha’s Hand Tree, one is handpicked from our nursery and beautifully gift-wrapped. Click “Add to Basket” and choose a greetings card to personalise and finish off the gift.
