There are two common varieties of Buddha's hand: white flowers and blue flowers. Currently, varieties of both types are available in the gardens of households in the area.

White flowers are often more valuable because the fruit is large and quickly harvested, but when ripe, it is not as beautiful as the green variety.

According to the experience of gardeners, it is necessary to choose the fruits that are still green. If you choose the whole green fruit, there will be no fragrance.
