Baby pomegranates were growing when I first arrived in Italy in September and now they are ready to eat…..another reason to love autumn.
Pomegranates are rich in vitamin C, vitamin B5, potassium and fibre (if you eat the seeds) and are the latest so called, super food.
You could drink the juice, or use the seeds in salads, knowing that it is doing you good, or you could do these things just because pomegranates are delicious.
There is to be a live nativity in Monti di Villa at 3.00pm on December 9. It will commence at the church in Monti di Villa and move through the streets of the village. It will be followed with food and drinks…….I wish I was going.
There is to be a bus taking people from La Villa. Please check for details at the information centre in La Villa.
I opened my first pomegranate earlier this month, as part of my so called “gourmet” evening, which I host once a year for friends. I was so impressed 🙂
I think the taste is sublime. I wish I was in Bagni di Lucca right now so I could be eating a pomegranate……however, the mangoes in Brisbane right now are very good.
A delicious fruit and very healthy!
I see them growing everywhere near my house and many seem to be left on the trees. I am always tempted to climb a fence and get them.

a great idea I want to try for Christmas….when making ice cubes,
, put three seeds in each one …very effective!!
I’m sure this would look wonderful, and there is no shortage of pomegranates in Bagni di Lucca.
I love pomegranates! They are just such a cool looking fruit. I like to split one open on a wooden cutting board and serve it together with some different cheeses like grana and parmigiano. Such a nice autumnal way to entertain guests.
Can I come?
If you bring some chestnuts or vino novello, sure! 😉
I love pomegrantes – we have one which I will eat after lunch. Great photos!
Thank you….enjoy your pomegranate.
What beautiful photographs. I like pomegranates but try to avoid imported fruit here in England.
Don’t they grow in England?
We have a couple of trees in our garden! Wonderful treat!
Lucky you. We have a small tree at the house in Vergemoli and I am going to plant more.
I love pomegranates both to eat and dress up salads or sprinkle over slow cooked lamb shoulder that’s been ‘pulled’ rather than carved – they make lovely little scattered jewels. Love the sound of the live nativity event – and the food and drink after – such a sensible way to organise things:)
I would love to be in Monti di Villa for the nativity event. I have been to one in the south of Italy and it was excellent.
I was in Turkey in September where they had pomegranate dressing on their salads – delicious!
We get them here in Queensland, but they are quite expensive. I just have to eat lots in italy.
