Citron or Buddha's hand

Thinking about making my own candied citron, and would prefer to use citron or buddha's hand - something with a thick pith... (now I'm wondering if pomelo would work well?)

Has anyone seen either for a reasonable price in the cities?

  1. Coops and Whole Foods have it, but I don't know the season. Oh, I think Dragon Star and other Asian grocers would carry it, probably a good bit cheaper too.

    Just had my first Finger Lime last weekend, I love exotic fruits.

      1. I have never ordered from Melisa's produce but they have an informative website. many local groceries sell Melisa's produce so maybe a special order of pomelo or B.hand could be arranged

        1. I think pomelo would be good sometimes it seems like they are all pith!

          1. You could try Sun Foods on University in St. Paul.
