Esrogim can be found in the shuk (market) that have on them a sort of "gartel" shape around the middle. That is to say a sort of indentation that make the esrog appear as if it's wearing a "gartel" (belt). Is there any known source for using such an esrog specifically, or any discussion about this in the earlier poskim? Why is it that some people desire to have such an esrog so much?
