Pomegranate Harvest

Growing pomegranates

I was pleasantly surprised to find one of the flowers on my newly planted pomegranate shrub, swelling promisingly into an actual fruit. Not only were the shrubs only relatively recently planted, but also we don’t have what I would call a Mediterranean climate! But sure enough one precious fruit was growing.  I checked on it every day for what seemed like many months until I deemed it to be harvest time. The glowing red hue, the uneven bumpy shape and the hollow sound when I tapped it – all signs that it was ready. I was rewarded with a bowl of delicious scarlet seeds which I added to fruit salads for my family.
