Pomegranate

Discovered that my pomegranate tree is producing one pomegranate.  Very exciting for me and my family as it is a favorite fruit for us all.  Mine trees are in pots They grow well in pots but it does makes it harder as the roots are mainly on the surface and need to be watered more often then most trees.  They prefer to be moist and not heavily watered.

According to the Wikipedia the pomegranate is good for cooking, juice and baking.  Here is a small piece of the article by Wikipedia
The pomegranate originated in the region of modern-day Iran, and has been cultivated since ancient times throughout the Mediterranean region and northern India.[3] It was introduced into Spanish America in the late 16th century and California, by Spanish settlers, in 1769.[3]
Today, it is widely cultivated throughout the Middle East and Caucasus region, north and tropical Africa, the Indian subcontinent, Central Asia, the drier parts of southeast Asia, and parts of the Mediterranean Basin.[3] It is also cultivated in parts of Arizona and California.[4] In recent years, it has become more common in the commercial markets of Europe and the Western Hemisphere

For more of this article go to Wikipedia . One thing I found out on my own is that there are male and female trees.  So you need two trees to pollinate them.
