Fruits of Abundance

Singaporeans love to eat fruits. Although Singapore does not have it's own fruit farms and is land constraint, majority of it's fruits are imported globally from Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, Philliphines, United States, Vietnam, China, Japan and many more countries.

You can find abundant fruit sellers in every town, heartlands and supermarkets. There is no shortage of variety. These fruits imported are very fresh. Some of the fruits that can be found are Apples, Pears, Oranges, Longans, Dragonfruits, Chempedak (jackfruit), Bananas, Durians, Kiwis, Grapes, Strawberries, Watermelons, Honeydew, Rockmelon and many many more. Some expatriates and foreigners are amazed by such a variety they can get here. The prices of fruits in Singapore are among the most reasonable in the world. Fuji apples can be as cheap as 5 nos for $1.90, Dragonfruits 3 to 5 nos at $2.10, Durians at 3 boxs (4-5 seeds each box) for $10 and even a Watermelon for as low as $2.50.
