This is my favorite bunch, hanging over the wall into the sunken garden. They are the reddest I have ever seen. Not that a redness is a requirement for juicy red seeds. It doesn't seem to matter. I have dull brown ones whose seeds are just as plump and juicy.
The bad news is that all that rain we had a couple of weeks ago had exactly the same effect as it did on the tomatoes. The skin of tomatoes is pretty thin so splits show up almost overnight. On the pomegranate, with its tough, leather like skin, ( the Romans used to tan the skins to make a kind of leather) it took a little longer.
So, it's time to get busy removing those little plump gems and sprinkling them our morning cereal.
