Got some pomegranates for 67c a piece. This happens once a year for 2 or 3 weeks. I freeze the seeds in a gallon ziploc for smoothies. Theyre not good for eating after thaw but alright for smoothie. Rare to get both seed and red carb phytochemicals in one food

I have a few dozen pomegranate trees. This year didn’t get a chance to cover them with nets so squirrels managed to eat about 50% of them in last few weeks. Still managed to get about 50 or so.

I juice most of them, and give a bunch away.

I've never seen a pomegranate tree. How easy are they to grow? Any major differences in size/quality between homegrown and what most of us get at stores?

It’s more of a bush than a tree, but can be trained to grow like a tree. One of the rare trees that are deciduous, but extremely drought Tolerant as well and can handle some frost in winter. Size typically is related in how you prune the branches after harvest

You putting tomato and peppers in a smoothie? That shit is fucked up, you need to figure out a better way to get nutrients.

I do put tomato and bell peppers together in smoothies quite frequently though

i don't need a better way. this way is easy and it works. I've tried a lot of things.
