    The best variety of this fruit is said to be grown in Jinhua, Zhejiang Province.

    There is a story behind this fruit, whereby the herb was given to a good son by a beautiful fairy maiden. 

    The boy's mother suffered from chest pressure, and one night he dreamt a fairy on Jinhua Mountain gave him a hand-like fruit, the scent of which cured her.

    In the Western world, the Buddha’s Hand is primarily prized for its thick, intensely aromatic peel.

    With little to no flesh or juice, the peel is definitely the star of the show.
