10 Minute Drill #20 - Surprise!


Tonight I was surprised by albino seeds in my pomegranate!
I have never seen these before, have you?
There were about 5 or 6 total and they tasted just as sweet as all their plump red relations!


Little pearls of goodness!

my little neighbor Skye brought me a pomegranate a while back that really wasn't ready to be picked from the tree. i left it for months waiting to see if it would ripen but it never did. when i cut into it, all the seeds were as you show so i guess these had not yet fully matured but were on there way...developmentally delayed.

Nancy, do you pick them off trees where you live? Are they in the grocery store year-round there? We don't even see them here until autumn. I love the photo! xo

lovely.
my best friend in middle school & i would pool our money and buy a pomegranate occasionally. we would walk around town sharing the seeds, feeling exotic.

Peggy~ No, I usually buy them and I don't know why they are available now, but I love them so much that I just scoop 'em up whenever I can!!

Cindy~ That is a great story! Exotic, eh?!!
