Pomegranate

Posted in fruit, Photo diary, plants and trees, seasons by 노강호 on January 4, 2011

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.
