When I lifted this particular branch of my lemon tree this
morning, I was surprised to see this young fruit, as big as my toe.
Subhanallah. I knew then that my lemon tree had started fruiting!
But, then, there was another surprise. I was puzzled, why was the fruit green?
When I bought the lemon seedling at one of the MAHA
stalls two years ago, I was told that it was yellow lemon.
I was of course expecting to get lemons with "golden" color, like below.

"Never mind, let me wait till the fruit matures, insyaAllah. It might turn yellow, then."
What if it remains green? Certainly I'd still say "Thank you, Allah!"
Although, I guess, I would also be wondering whether the person
who sold me the seedling was color blind or "tree blind".
Or he might have forgotten to tell me the truth about the seedling.
