    The group spent a couple of hours in the orchard learning about pomegranates from the POM team.

    I loved learning about pomegranates and POM’s harvesting practices. I find it all so interesting!

    I’ll post some videos later tonight about what I learned while touring the orchards this afternoon.

    We’re off to hear a presentation about the health benefits of pomegranates and then to a fancy-schmancy dinner.

    There’s even more to come!

    I love the colors your camera picks up with the red of the poms and the green of the leaves. It looks like Christmas to me :-)

    Have to giggle at the pic of all the bloggers taking pics :-)

    Because of you, I bough some POM pomagrenade just yesterday, remembering the orchard pictures from your post! :) I can’t remember the last time that I had one of those… at least 5 years ago! So good and different… messy but well, that is part of the fun! :) :D
