Nar


How do you call this fruit in your language? We say “nar” or “šipak”. We also say “šipak” for the rose hip but I really don’t know why.

They're pomegranate! :-) I love them, but only if it's picked at the right time. Never buy them here in the UK!

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and for your kind words.

Enjoy the rest of your week,

Yes, grenade in French.

Beautiful fruit.

I love the way you always post 2 photos, one larger view and one detail. It's a great idea and it really works well!

This year at our new house we have a pomogranate tree which has given us at least 100 pieces of fruit. I have one on my kitchen counter and every time I go by I take a few of the seeds and pop them into my mouth. So good, but too many seeds which I don't swallow.
Great picture of them.

Romanian: rodie. Deutsch: Granatapfel. Looks apetizing!

In Hungarian it is 'granat alma' or granade apple, but I also came to know it as pomegranate.

Not only is it colorful and unique - but the juice is VERY good for you!

I am very curious about this fruit. I would like to know how this fruit would smell as an oil or perfume. If someone could help me, I would really appreciate it. Thank you all, and the pictures are truly amazing. Thank you for sharing.
