I ♥ Pomegranate!

When I asked if the grocery store had any pomegranates in stock, I was told they are out of season. Sad face. I didn't know there was a specific season for pomegranates. I just figured that in the summer, they come from California/Florida/whatever, and in the winter they come from the southern hemisphere... wrong!

After the tree flowers in spring, it takes about 6 months for fruits to be ready for picking! Harvesting time for California pomegranates is October to January, so just a few short months per year. (The season in the southern hemisphere is March through May.) The good news: pomegranates don't ripen after picked, so they store well for months.

Pomegranates are soo good for you! They make me feel fresh and new when I feel low. I tend to crave them after yoga or after I am naughty and have pizza or something. They pick me right up and to me that is the best evidence that they are good for me :)

So long, my tangy, sparkly, shiny friends! Hope to see you again soon!

PS: Now of course I am daydreaming about having a pomegranate tree in my backyard. Sometime, in the future...

  1. Simm, I've been lax in blogging because I haven't been attending classes. Just been sleeping and deep in thought a lot due to my friend passing, etc. So much seemed to have happened that past 2 weeks. Thank you so much for reading my experience. I see that you left some comments including a question. I'll have a clear mind to reply to you / correct my blog due to the point you made sometime on Saturday. Hope all is well with you.
