Austin pomegranate - really good!
« on: October 11, 2020, 09:46:54 PM »
The fruits on my 'Austin' variety pomegranate tree began ripening about 10 days ago (maybe the very start of October, Southern California) and they are really really good.
Several were given to friends and neighbors and they raved about them, said they were the best pomegranates they had ever tasted.
They are even better than 'Angel Red', and I would say literally twice as good as the common 'Wonderful' variety.

The 'Austin' pomegranates are sweet and very flavorful and juicy, and soft seeds. There was barely anything in the seed to spit out. (Or maybe it just seemed that way because they were so good)

I would highly recommend this variety.

This is also the first year that the tree has produced.
