  1. got some at harvest wagon in rosedale last year. Haven't been there in a few weeks though, but they were good,and a great conversation piece!

    1. First time I saw them was at Lazy Acres grocery in Santa Barbara. They were actually used as an ingredient on a recent Iron Chef America. They're cool.

      1. The Hungry Cat Restaurant makes a rum or vodka drink with a hand of buddha. It is one of the best drinks you will ever have!

            In Hollywood in the lobby of a big building next to a parking lot. It's really a great restaurant. It's hard to get a reservation but really worth the wait.

        2. I have seen them at the Whole Foods in Hazelton the last few times I have been there.

            really? that's great i'll check that out!

          2. j6p, I'm curious as to how you plan to use this citron. Do you use it only for its zest, or do you slice it and add it to dishes?

              the zest can be used to flavour just about anything, I like it in tea actually
              You can also lice it and stuff it inside fish, it's completely edible and it's rind is not bitter like lemon or other citrus
