Fruits of Fall
Here are some of the 'Russian' pomegranates we harvested recently. There were only two of the bigger baseball sized fruits but there were about ten of the smaller ones. We already ate 5 or 6 of those.
The "Clubhouse" strawberries are still trickling out a few fruits. These red ones were picked October 30 and the whites November 14.
One seed from F1 Rosa palustris X 'Home Run'
Maybe not completely sterile after all... the F1 hybrid, Rosa palustris X 'Home Run' made a single hip that had a single seed inside it. I wonder if this seed is from the pollen I put on many of the flowers. It was pollen of Rosa rugosa alba.
