A few posts back I said I wasn't sure how to tell when my pomegranates were ripe. Well, I got back to the farm this week and I think I found out how to tell. Make a note, harvest pomegranates in mid October from now on. They were whoppers, very heavy with juice and the nectar is sweeter than I remembered. The juice in stores doesn't compare to the taste of these.
Logee's Tropical Plants out of CT (can't seem to get the spelling right) is where I purchased my plant. Though I overwinter it in the greenhouse, all the leaves fall off and then starts leafing out in early spring. You too can grow them. I tore into the one in front. It's a great thing.
