Inside pomegranate by danielnikolic Inside pomegranate by danielnikolic
I ate this fruit (Punica granatum) yesterday.

It's quite traditional here, and has various names: nar (from Turkish); šipak ("rose hip"; actually a completely different plant); mogranj etc.

But people don't eat it much here, most prefer apples and oranges...

My grandma bought a pomegranate! My infusion is tomorrow but after I come home we're gonna open it up and I'm going to try it. She said I'll probably like it because I like bitter candy. I can't wait to try it. Even if I don't like it, I can't wait to taste it and to see those gorgeous little seeds for myself!

Please, don't expect too much! Some of them are more sour, and some others more sweet. The seeds inside should be dark red. You should just cut the skin a little and then put it apart by your hands not to cut too many seeds.

Btw how much did it cost?

I didn't have high expectations, I was just excited to have something as uniquely beautiful as a pomeganate.

Gran said it cost about as much as a candy bar, so rounghly 58 cents or so.

Oh, it's even cheaper than here! Did you like it?

Btw candy bars are here typically 4-6 kn, some $0.80-1.20.

Ah.

I'm not sure if I like it or not. It's definitely a strange taste. Not one that I'm used to at all. I can only manage to eat a few of the seeds at a time before the taste threatens to give me a headache, yet I don't mind the taste.

I'm not sure whether I like it or not just yet. Isn't that odd? ^^;

But I did get some really good pictures. ^_^

Ah... is it sweet?

Btw what fruits do people eat there?

It's kinda sweet, but sour and bitter at the same time. And different seeds taste more one way than another. Like the ones with more red on them taste more sour and sweeter.

Most people eat apples, oranges, bananas, grapes, and such like that.

So, same as here... in my opinion, pomegranate seeds taste somewhat like grapes (not too sweet ones).

We eat "mandarines" [link] a lot in this time of year, since they're locally grown (in southern parts, not around my city).

Btw, we had the first frost today, -2°C.

Ah, I have a quite sick cat (on chemotherapy), and don't have enough money for some things (I'm moving to another apartment, etc.).

Thanks for asking and caring :hug:

Yeah, they need to be ripe enough. I don't know what's the right time for them in Down Under, though.

they look so lovely, but often are so sour.. and it's little fruit and much seed....
do you eat them just like that, raw?
Reply
:icondanielnikolic:
danielnikolic Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2008
Yeah! I think this one was too ripe, actually...
Ones I eat have very little seed, you just eat seeds whole.
