Pomegranate losing its green

.
The green pomegranates on the trees are gradually turning red.
It seems like just yesterday that each fruit was a pretty red flower.
.
The color green is our July 1st theme at City Daily Photo theme day.

I have never witnessed the cycle of the pomegranate. I have only ever seen one on a tree once, a split open luscious one in a garden in Rome. Interesting that the flower is red, the immature green, the fruit red. I like cycles like that: provide closure of a kind.

I do love a pomegranate Dina. Also Have been catching up on last posts and reading about the history of the cinematheque, what an unbelievable setting and thank goodness for people with a vision who are prepared to carry through.

Very pretty! Pomegranates grow in Pasadena, too, but it seems their shape may be a bit different.

i have this bush in my yard and i like the pomegranates (and so do the birds). nice choice

Rae Walter said...

Love the shot. Which reminds me that I need to get out into the garden to see how our own bush is coming along. .....not as good as these as I just found out after a quick peek.

but where are her friends

Dina said...

Shalom friends!
I am surprised that people are saying "bush." Here our pomegranates grow on trees, with the highest fruits well beyond my reach. So now I learn that pomegranates are different in other parts of the world.

Dina said...

Bergson, she has many friends on the tree but they don't show up in this shot. I chose to focus on this one because of the unusual red+green.

Great choice for today. we too have pomegranate trees in Menton and yes, they are trees. This is a fruit I was always fascinated by in childhood - you know how kids don't like to eat pips but these were somehow OK.

After the green is gone we'll be ready to eat the delicious fruit!|

I've been noticing the pomegranates in Hawaii lately, too. I used to see them a lot when I was growing up, not so much now. I liked them every so often but the seeds weren't much fun.

Mark said...

So interesting as I also think of the Pomegranate as a bush rather than a tree. Great shot for the theme Dina. Enjoy the month.

There is a Pomegrate Tree in front of my house so I watch this 'metamorphosis' every year. :-)

Petrea Burchard said...

Ours are trees, too.

Leif Hagen said...

We certainly don't have pomegranates growing on trees in Eagan! Thanks for showing us that GREEN fruit on theme day!
Happy weekend, Dina

So beautiful, it looks like a lamp!

The kids were very curious about this fruit when we were in Israel, but it certainly was not as good as it looked. Have only seen this fruit in Israel

Pomegranate is difficult to eat because of its numerous seeds, but it surely is sweet and fragrant. I used to see more pomegranate trees when I was a boy. I don't see that many now. I should probably plant one in my garden.

spacedlaw said...

Some trees still bear flowers here (they feel late somehow. surely the pomegranates used to bloom in May rather than in June?)

Anything with pomegrantes touches my heart. No pomegrantes here in the Northeast of the US except for in the stores at certaim times of the year, and expensive.
