We ran across a Buddha hand in our local market and ended up using it as a centerpiece for a fruit platter. We cut the bottom off of it, then used the "fingers" to drape bunches of grapes over the sides. Got a lot of WTF looks.

My parents have an old orange tree that had a lemon branch grafted onto it when it was young -- so that you have a portion of the tree that gives you lemons while the rest produces oranges.

Over the years, though, it seems the line has blurred between the two fruits. It produces some fruits that are a lot like the ones described in the article. I like to use them for cooking and making Sangria. But you can't eat them directly *pucker*.

And with that, a mighty cheer went up from the heroes of Shelbyville. They had banished the awful meyer lemon tree forever, because it was haunted. Now let's all celebrate with a cool glass of turnip juice.

Never heard of these before, mayhap lead too sheltered a life. Only newsworthy for those who had never heard of.
Which Shelbyville, Gwyrddu? I find 7 Shelbys & only 6 Shelbyvilles. While banishment might be apropos, some of the ignorant might not terribly mind trying one -- once.

This, and why haven't they had access to something that has been around here (US) for at least 40 years that I know of. Was it in quarantine for forever like anything else?

After some googling, I think it's an ad, aka advert. There doesn't seem to be an importation ban, and TFA says there is a small amount grown in the UK already. I don't know what the deal is exactly, but I suppose they might just be rare in the UK.

They grow like crazy around here. Meyers make an excellent marmalade, limoncello, and base for cuban lechon asado. But don't use 'em for lemon curd or meringue pie - disappointing results there.

Have a Meyer lemon tree in my garden. Excellent lemon meringue pie. Great for marmalade, too.

Fast, easy dip with pucker-fruit: Squeeze lemon, or meyer lemon, juice into sweetened condensed milk until you like the balance. Serve with ginger snaps... or shortbread, carrot cake, bananas, strawberries, whatever.

A local "Southern gourmet" restaurant layers it like a parfait with graham cracker crumbs in a mason jar.

Oh man, that's a great suggestion. Thanks. I'm thinking I can incorporate these mutant oranges into some baking, too, as I just invested in a nice KitchenAid stand mixer to get my baking skills on.

So you've had these in America since 1908 and you haven't sold any to Canada yet?

But they're new in the UK.

Yeah, real nice, guys.

No, my mistake. It was the ingredient of the week on canada.com.

These things taste awful. If something needs a lemon taste, put in a lemon. If it's too tart, add some sugar. If you want it to taste like you screwed up the recipe, I guess use some Meyer lemons.
