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.


  1. Does the white pomegranate have white/clear gel around the seeds?

  2. Hi Darren,
    Actually all those pomegranates are from the same plant. I'm guessing that the one is so pale because it was hidden in the very center of the plant (not as much sunlight?). If it does have pale interior too, I'll be sure to let you know. But it should have dark red sour seeds like the others.

  3. In high school I found a pomegranate tree that had small, white-fleshed fruit. I grew several seeds and one made it to fruiting. That plant had typical fruit and is presumably still alive in the yard of a family friend. The original plant has since become a McDonald's.

    I've been keeping an eye out for white-fleshed pomegranates since then.
