Buddha hand fruit in Dallas area

Does anyone know where the citrus fruit called "Buddha hand" can be found in the North Texas area? Central Market doesn't seem to know what it is, and several Asian markets have no idea either. It is not a matter of life and death, but it just looks so darn good on Iron Chef...Thanks for any help I can get. This is my first post, so I am hoping good things come of it!

  1. I think I have seen them available in the past at the Vietnamese grocer at the corner of Frankford and Josey Ln. While the fruit is certainly appealing to look at, it is really only good for its zest.

    1. I thought I had seen it at Central Mkt (or maybe Whole Foods), but it may have been a while - I remember it being really expensive (around $8) and it didn't look like there was much to eat.

      1. I saw some at Central Market a few months ago. They were next to the limes and lemons. Maybe it's a seasonal thing?

        1. For anyone who is interested, Central Market (in Southlake anyway) will have them later in the fall, as it is indeed seasonal. Thanks for the help.

          1. Try CM again, the SA CM had them last week.
