Very nice indeed! Did you treat the skin of the top fruit (limes???) with something? The second is excellent too..... Congrats.

abw, Canna.

Hi!

Glad you like it. I only washed it with water. I guess the camera flash made it appear shiny.

Both shots are really great The top one however brings up a burning question. In the Philippines they are called Kalamansi (am I correct?), the fruit is about an inch (2-3 cm) in diameter. In Florida, grows a fruit called "Key Lime" (as in key lime pie), the Florida ones seem to be a bit larger in diameter, but this could be attributed to selective breading etc. The taste however of a Key Lime and a Kalamansi are identical. So here's the question, are they both in fact the same thing??? Maybe Mark could post a photo of a Kalamansi bush and one of our Florida friends could do the same with a Key Lime bush.

It seems that the Kalamansi is found only in the Philippines, it is named as the Philippine Lime (Calamondin) by several websites. Even in Asia alone, the Kalamansi have been specifically differentiated from those of Indonesia and Thailand. While the Key Lime have been described as having a similar taste as the Kalamansi, it is however listed as Mexican Lime or Spanish Lime. Further investigations shows that Kalamansi actually falls under Tangelos/Kumquats, whileKey Lime falls under Lime.

Hope that helps.
