The Gallery of Unusual Fruit #2

I'm retroactively going to say that #1 was my earlier blog about the fertility goddess taking the mortal form of a persimmon.  

This, my friends, is a mutant lemon.  It was discovered on my friend Elizabeth's tree.  She and her family gave this charmer up willingly.  Almost eagerly.  Their loss!

It looks like some sort of claw from an alien.

It's also vaguely reminiscent of a plucked turkey or chicken.

It's most lemony angle. 

Lemonade, anyone?


  1. I think pic #1 looks like Sebastian from The Little Mermaid.

  2. I actually saw these in Whole Foods not that long ago ... I can't remember what they were called ... supposedly the rind is much more lemon-y than a typical lemon.

  3. RL, :)

    JK, Buddha's Hand? It does look like one, but in this case it was the one funky lemon on a tree filled with normal ones. Maybe the Buddha's Hand started with one mutant fruit.

  4. This lemon frightens me. *shiver* That's the sort of thing that comes out from under the bed to grab your ankle in the middle of the night when you get up to go to the bathroom in the dark. Really.
