Pomegranates

The dwarf pomegranates I planted this spring are covered with flowers:






I planted a couple full-sized poms last year but they couldn't make it through the heat and drought that lasted through late summer and into autumn. Perhaps I'll attempt them again next year. This dwarf variety is doing great, however. They should get about half the size of a normal pomegranate, around four foot high by four foot wide, and have smaller, darker and slightly more acidic (but still yummy) fruit. We'll see how that turns out!
