Two years ago, I had about half a dozen pomegranates on my tree. Last year, they were only about an inch or two in size. :( So I was really excited this year to see about three that were almost 3 inches in diameter.
Only, when I cut it open, that's what I saw above. The seeds never even formed! Have you ever seen the like before?
Still, I was hopeful since there was one decent-sized pomegranate left on the tree.
And it had seeds! So exciting! Umm, yes, this is what passes for excitement around these parts. As you can see, the other two pomegranates never formed seeds either. Since my parents were coming into town, I decided to close it back up and save it for them.
And thus, this year's crop of pomegranates yielded just one.
