    I think some should know that the pom seeds are good for the colon, they need to be chewed up and when they get to the colon some will be sucked into the little pits and then the seeds will release anti-inflammatory substances.
    Check it out.

    Why does Amb. Holbrooke say that Pomegranate cultivation can overtake poppies in Afghanistan? He says they take 3-5 years to develop the trees, but this is an enticing agricultural alternative for the Afghans. Is that so? Can it be that financially rewarding? He’s a very, very smart fellow. So are our Dept. of Agriculture guys. It would be quite the accomplishment that was overlooked by the Persians and Alexander the Great for the region if the Pomegranate led the way to stability.

    I have a pomegranate tree in my backyard 2 years old now and last year and this year the blooms come out but then the pod holding the blooms break off…then no fruit. It looks as though the same process is going on this year. What is going on? I live on the east coast in the south.
