Pomegranate =Punica granatum ,deciduous
This fruit originated in Iran and was introduced to Mexico , in 1789 by the Spanish .It survives best in a dry climate and its seeds and juices make a tonic for the heart and throat among many more medicinal purposes.
Amongst all the other fruit bearing trees, that have been planted over time, on my property , Mame,Bananas ,Papaya, Pitahaya to mention a few ,my Pomegranate is starting to bear fruit this year.
Last year it managed to bear two Pomegranates but this year the flowers seems to be in abundance and I really hope that they all bear fruits .
The plant itself looks quite whimsical blowing in the breezes and one wonders how it would hold the weight of the fruit. It does!
