Thanks Phil ❤️❤️ It’s mostly the colour and I know how big my tree is so that counts too. The season is said to begin in the second week of September and continue for a few months. @philstalder

Love your progress shots! So fun to see it evolve. What do you do with them, aside from just sitting happily and staining your fingers as you snack?

Thanks Cyndi, Jackie, Adrienne, Alif, Jeff ❤️❤️ Home grown pomegranates are the sweetest things ever, other than eating a few spoonfuls of them I just love adding them to salads Adrienne. They especially go great with rocket lettuce and onions or they could spice up the normal salad 🥗 😋 @cyndi @jmlincoln @greenroomgarden @alif @jeatacake

Me too, Alif 😋 There is so much variety in Salads 🥗 Have you ever tried tabbouleh ? It’s absolutely mouthwatering specially with some pomegranates 🤤

Thank you Jane ❤️ this is right after the petals of the flower fall and it starts looking like a fruit. The bees have been kind enough around this tree and it has a few small fruit now but they still have a long way to go 😋 @pelly

All advice on pomegranate very grateful to receive. Am try to grow from seed, in Scotland. Yes it maybe a challenge, but I have some fruits trees of peach, nectarine and kiwi. All in the greenhouse. Any tips or suggestions for soil etc thank you

sabbanrula

We have alkaline soil in Jordan (7-9) so that works well for the fruit trees I have here. I’m not much of an expert on the issue of growing trees from seeds, but the ones I’ve tried have done well in the soil directly, even some in soil mixed with sand for good drainage. Sorry I cannot be of more help Aly @thehardygardener
