Pomegranates

In the Northern Hemisphere, autumn is synonymous with pomegranates and we particularly look forward to this time of the year.  The ruby red colour of the fruit, the jewel like seeds and crown shaped sepals not to mention the delicious juice which has enormous health benefits all go to make up this visually spectacular fruit.
