Throughout 2010 I took regular photos of a pomegranate tree near my one-room. Boring! Perhaps, but in the UK I have never seen this tree growing except in my garden. I planted this from a seed I took from a fruit bought in a supermarket some 13 years ago. Although the bush has never fruited, it regularly flowers and I’m told that last summer it was covered in a magnificent display of red flowers.
Though the fruits were red and shiny, when I picked one last year and tasted the fruit I immediately spat it back out. As delicious as they look, pomegranates growing on street corners tend to be horridly bitter despite their juicy appearance.
