The Pomegranates are the last thing that ripen in the fall, and our one tree produced three buckets of them.  The trees look like an ugly if tallish bush, and they require absolutely no maintenance, not even watering.  In spite of that, they put out a pretty good crop, as our tree did this year. That is the kind of tree I like!

The fruit fresh off the tree.  A couple of the pomegranates had already split in half, and I left those for the birds.  This one was about to split open, so I popped it open the rest of the way for the picture.

Here my wife has separated the fruit kernels from the "apple," and they are ready for juicing.  She will do jelly, molasses and simple juice.  All good stuff for holiday eating later.
