Pomegranates – looks to be a good season


Sunday 14 June, 2015 by Uncle Spike

The pomegranate bushes are still in full flower, but at the same time, we have fruit already well formed.We’ll have to wait until October to harvest them, but for now, it looks as if it will be a good crop this season 🙂




(apologies for the dirty paws – taken at the end of a busy 12 hour day) 



Some of the fruit are already 6cm (2″) in diameter. Quite rare to see such advanced fruit when the bush is still pretty much in full flower. Looking forward to winter evenings scoffing the results….

  1. What is your preferred way of removing the seeds from the flesh? The only way I know is to whack the fruit with a wooden spoon and let the seeds fly out into a bowl or onto the Pavlova.

    I love pomegranates! We have three trees, all about 5 years old and they’ve never yielded fruit – very disappointing.


  3. Does it mean the season will be extended, or that the first fruit will fall? I don’t think I can wait until October for the answer!


...waiting to hear from you...
