A superb image here, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Thank you Ray, I did think of your night market shots when I took some shots around here.
I love your close in focus and narrow depth of field - the color is great!
Ayush Basu: The background had some clutter (hands, boxes, etc) and I chose to get up close. I do have some wide view photos too, Elizabeth

Wonderful picture, love the green.
I have to dig deep in my memory, Jaffa was not welcome in the Netherlands (I don't know about present time) It was that Jaffa products came from Israeli settlements and some had a problem with that.
Don't ask me the fine details of it.
Ayush Basu: I can see why some would have a problem with that. It is sad, however, that people can get their priorities very wrong.

Singapore is a small country and cannot afford to mix food security with politics. It is a very complex system; in case you are aware that in neighbouring Malaysia, there has been a flood which has destroyed farms and plantations and of course, with the decreased supply, there is a price pressure being felt.

Thank you for the visit and comment, Astrid
That's something we don't get.
Ayush Basu: I am not very sure what it is actually, it appeared to be a kind of pleasantly fragrant lime, Michael.
We have Jaffa products here as well Ayush! Very nice capture.
Ayush Basu: Thank you Richard, I have some more lined up in the coming days.

Green oranges!
Ayush Basu: Do you find them unusual, Chris? I certainly do!

A lovely enticing green, Ayush
Ayush Basu: You have used the right adjectives, Lisl
Wonderful shot, Ayush. Lime is my favorite fruit. I use if daily.
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Mary. My mother has the same favourite and for her, there can never be too much lime. grin
Isn't it a lovely shade of green.
Ayush Basu: And very fragrant too, Brian. I hung around this crate long after I was done shooting it. smile

Now I thought that these were some sort of green oranges; now I know they are grapefruit. The Jaffa brand seems to be worldwide.
Ayush Basu: Oh, you mean green oranges and grapefruit are not the same thing? I got to look this up on the 'net. The name pummelo also comes to mind, although these are probably not that, Alan.

I have no idea what these are Ayush, unless u ripe oranges.
Ayush Basu: I had no idea and I just looked up green oranges... seems like I need to be making another trip to get myself some, Chad.
All the way from Israel, we also get various types of this Jaffa brand fruit
Ayush Basu: I am told these are green oranges, Martin. Thank you very much
mmmmm i would love to shop there, the smell of fresh fruit and produce makes my heart sing smile
Ayush Basu: I am pretty sure you would love it here, Elaine.
Sounds like an important trading area with fine fruits such as this Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Definitely important, considering that in land scarce Singapore, not much area is allocated for agriculture. Thank you, Janet
I am guessing these are unripe oranges and not limes Ayush
Ayush Basu: I stand corrected then, Bill... I looked up green oranges and I have never had one actually! I got to go back to this place then and get myself grin
Pasir Panjang? Is Fajar still there?!
Ayush Basu: I think you have it mixed with Bukit Panjang, LC
