    Buddha’s hand, a citrus fruit that is mostly rind. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddha%27s_hand

      While it could very well be a Buddha’s Hand, it could also just be a deformed lemon.  My mom has a lemon tree that sometimes makes lemons that look like this.  She calls them Buddha’s Hand when they turn out that way, although, technically, that’s not correct.  A Buddha’s Hand is a distinct fruit.  She just grows deformed lemons.

      There’s a Reddit thread where they talk about both.   Someone says the deformed lemons are the result of a citrus mite.  Here’s a photo of one still on the tree:


      Overall, I think you’re right, probably a Buddha’s Hand, but possibly just a messed up lemon.

    Came here expecting some sort of terrifying yoga pants.

    We used to have a lemon tree that one year (and just that one season) produced fruit like that. Some of the lemons resembled a jester’s hat. All had a really thick rind and not much juice or pulp inside. 
    It went back to normal the following year, so I always assumed it had been temporarily affected by a virus, fungus or other pest.

    When life hands you deformed lemons, organize a Lemon-aid

    Lemon and Demon are just one letter apart. Interpolating between L and D, you get H, so this is a Hemon…

    Looks more like a Pac-Man ghost to me.

  7. LOL!   Cool!   Thought of Lemon’s blog when I saw this:   Lemon Lime Moon

    Gluing black eyed peas also works well for eyes, as in the style of  the book “What are you peeling?”

    just don’t look at it.

  10. I had the impression that every etrog, (citrons that have a function I can’t remember in Sukkot celebrations) looked sort of like this.  But a Google image search makes it appear that most etrogs (etrogot?) just look like knobbly lemons.  Anyway, with Sukkot starting at the end of September, sort of seasonal.

    I’m stealing the name “Cthulhu Lemon”  for my new line of occult yoga pants…

    Stupid question, but I want to know: what is the connection between “Cthulhu lemon” and yoga pants?

    EDIT: Never mind I get it, sorry.
