Strange fruit.

I'm always on the lookout for unique things and I happened across this fruit. It's called a Buddha's Hand. I'm thinking this could be used in one of those fruit bouquets. Doesn't the green one look like it could be used for hair? Or you could chop off the "fingers" and make some creepy food display.

Sorry ladies, I guess I didn't say exactly what it was. : ) It's a citrus. Apparently the peel is used but the inside is much too bitter for consumption.

This fruit has always creeped me out...it (for some reason) reminds me of those creepy little creatures in aliens (the face huggers). *shudder*
