Pomegranates In The Making

I’ve decided that pomegranate trees are my most favourite fruit tree ever. They look alluring at any time of the year, even in the abject depths of the central Mediterranean winter, as you can see in one of my previous posts.

Here are a couple of close-up shots of pomegranate flowers and developing fruit, taken a a few days ago. They didn’t come out quite as crisp as I had hoped, but I nevertheless love that beguiling shade of scarlet red against the dark green foliage.

    This just forced me to think about where pomegranates come from, which is something I never considered. A tree, duh. Thanks for the beautiful pictures and a quick botany lesson.
