Food of the gods? A superfood? Pomegranates have been given all kinds of labels over the years. There's no denying these gorgeous fruit are packed full of goodness. But they are also all kinds of sweet and sour yum.
They're pretty easy to grow in Australia, they seem to like our hot climate. They do take a few years to put on fruit, but they're a nice tree to look at with sweet little red flowers. The only annoying thing is the fruit fly like them as well. Amazingly that thick skin doesn't put the flies off at all. So you have to be careful about those.
I've been successfully netting many of my fruit trees with fruit fly nets over the past couple of years. I'm not sure how they'll work out long term, but so far so good. Fingers crossed.
I'm pretty excited by this harvest. So many possibilities. Salads, cocktails, juice. I'm off to do some concocting. Hopefully I'll be back with some goodies to share soon.
