Pomegranates at Monte das Cebolas

This early November, we managed to harvest 7 boxes of nice pomegranates of several cultivars. We took what the Iberian magpies and other tits had left us. The birds made holes in a substantial amount of fruits this year, probably due to their drought-related desperation. Once a whole is done, the bees, wasps, flies and co. get in. And you end up coming across some fruits that look OK from one side while turning out being completely empty from inside... 

I didn't make any systematic comparison. But I especially enjoyed Sakerdze (Georgia) and Mistura Honey (Iran). And our pomegranate production was certainly more impressive than what we manage to harvest from our unique producing almond tree :-)
