The Ruby Seed of Pomegranates

Each season brings with it something that we can cherish. And nothing tastes better then seasonal fruit. Whether it's a watermelon in summer, or as it's in this case a pomegranate in autumn. Right now they are still sleeping, quietly growing and getting redder and bigger every day.

Here are some wild pomegranates I took recently during our visit to the old town Pocitelj.

And here is a close-up from last year of the juicy ruby seeds that I just love to eat with a spoon out of a bowl.  So good for us too!

  1. daddy had a tree of these in our yard.. i had forgotten what the seeds looked like. i really like the macro of the inside of the fruit. the fruit is so beautiful it looks like ornaments to hang on a Christmas tree.

    1. In some arias of the world pomegranates are associated with Christmas, but because of the good weather here in South Europe, they become ripe faster.

    1. It does take a while to get the seeds out, and once you start eating them, they do go very fast! :)

  8. That's great work on the photos, Mersad. I Have always liked eating those pomegranate seeds, and my husband drinks pomegranate juice every morning with his breakfast.

    1. That's good to hear. We actually buy homemade organic pomegranate syrup that you dissolve in water, it tastes so much better then the boxed juice.

  11. Oh my goodness, how well I remember picking out the seeds with a pin. These photographs are excellent, Mersad. Love the effect on the first one.

    Thank you so much for your good wishes re hubby. I'm back, albeit on an irregular basis. Maybe I'll blog once a week for a while just to keep my hand in.

    1. Thanks for visiting! As I have written in some of my previous comments on this post: try finding the organic syrup. Much better then store bought carton juice.

  23. I eat almost anything but there are a few fruits with slithery seeds, like the pomegranate, the texture of which I really do not find appealing. It certainly makes a beautiful photograph though.

    1. It can be bitter if you catch the white part around the seeds. My dad usually does a good job of cleaning them up for us! :D
