THE FINAL PRODUCT


Some of you may remember my photos of a mystery flower back in early June. We came to the agreement that the flowers were pomegranets in the making. Later in July I showed the fruit forming on the tree. Now the final stage has been reached....picked fruit.
We have so many of these red globes we really don't know what to do with them. They are bursting at the seams. You can see the beautiful ruby red little pieces inside the skin. The branches are very thorny so I used pruning shears to get them off.
My pictures don't come out as large as they used to with this new format. Please click on the picture to see the fruit in greater detail.

Look at those beautiful pomegranates! You are oh so lucky! You know, around here supermarkets charge $2.99 each.

I like to add those beautiful seeds to green salads.

Lovely pomegranates! I like to use the juice in a salad dressing and include the beautiful seeds too. they also go nicely scattered over a plate of cold meats.

Oh, I loved living in CA many moons ago. We had avacado trees and lemon trees. Such a treat. But wow, to have pomegranates, what a treasure. I LOVE them.

Beverly said...

Oh, they look so good. I remember sucking on those insides at my grandpa's house. What do you call the insides?

Thank of how happy you might make some recipients of your largesse - handing a pomegranate to the bank teller who serves you, or to the greeter at your church on Sunday. gee, I wish you could reach out through the computer screen right now.

Such a beautiful fruit. I've never known what to do with them either but I'm sure there must be recipes for yummy stuff.

Did your son tell you an elderly weird lady waved at him in Salem yesterday? I tried :)

Lavenderlady said...

Wow! Lucky you! Those are some great looking pomgranetes.

MedaM said...

You are so lucky having your own pomegranate in your garden. I love to eat them very much…ah, my mouth is watering! :-)

Laurie said...

Beautiful. I haven't had pomegranates in years. The inside of the fruit is very pretty.

susan said...

They're beautiful! I've been wondering how they were doing. What else have you harvested?

Mike said...

How neat! I am so glad you followed up on that posting.

I haven't eaten a pomegranate since I was a kid. My friend that lived across the street from me had a tree in his back yard and we loved it when they ripened.

Dsole said...

Wow, Sue, this is so... yummy! We had it here too, and we call them "granadas". I like it very much. And the photo too! ;)

Paula said...

Sue,
Let see...pomegranate ice cream, pomegranate jello, pomegranate martinis, pomegranate pancake syrup. Thought you may need a few suggestions. I would no idea what to do with them, either. At least, that many of them. Have you tried selling them at the farmer's market?
