    Great photos! I just bought a pomegranate last night, first time since I was a child! Can’t wait to try it in my salad, on my cereal, or just pop one into my mouth! Thanks for the inspiration!

    nothing better than standing over the sink, gobbling the seeds spitting out the residue, and repeat till almost all are gone except the few saved for your salad, Love those Pomegranates.

    Never seen pomegranates that look so lush and succulent before. Especially the picture that’s just a handful of seeds in their natural state. Pictures or actual pomegranates I’ve seen have sort of a dried out look to them. Now I KNOW what to look for in the grocery stores.

    At Trader Joes you can buy just the jewel red seeds with the rest of the fruit already removed. Gorgeous on top of a salad around the holidays – and easy. But now I really SEE what the big deal is about. These pomegranates look delish.

    Wow – never saw a pomegranate tree before. Really beautiful – almost like a decorated Christmas tree with beautiful red balls.

    I am amazed how beautiful the trees are – I did not know that they were so abundant on a tree. Lovely pictures.

    Being a New Englander I am so in awe of how, heavy, red, and gorgeous these fruits look on the tree. Beautiful shots of deliciousness! Cheers, Jess

    These look beautiful! What a treat that would be to eat pomegranates right from the tree!

    *sigh* you just made me so homesick. I’m from Visalia and when I was little there was this little blind old man that lived next door to me who couldn’t see to pick his pomegranates and persimmons. I miss those days so much. There’s no such thing as Fall in Phoenix.
