I know it’s autumn when Signor Lu’s uncle arrives at our house with a crate of pomegranates from his brother’s tree.
This year he arrived with a particularly abundant offering.
There are many ways to prepare the pomegranate to eat. With its hard, thick skin, it’s not the easiest of fruits to hack into. Naturally there are several YouTube videos that explain how best to get at the delicious pomegranate seeds.
My favourite method is to get Signor Lu to do all the work. He’s becoming very proficient at it thanks to all the practice 🙂
Now we have our own pomegranate tree, in our very own garden.
Sooner or later we will pick the fruit and compare it with Signor Lu’s uncle’s brother’s fruit.
But what will we do next year if our tree yields a bumper crop and uncle arrives with another box from his brother’s tree?
