Mysticism and miniature fruit

I visited the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum the other day (which, although I had originally worried it would be a weird cultish experience, was a really cool, professional museum, easily worth visiting for those with an interest in ancient Egypt) and came across this row of dwarf pomegranates along one wall. I didn't even recognize them until I saw the fruit, which was pretty obviously pomegranate-like. It gave the cultivar name as 'Nana', but I'm now thinking that's actually a botanical variety, and so there's got to be a cultivar name that goes with it (assuming they weren't just seedlings).

Anyway, I was delighted to find an unusual fruit growing there, and snapped a few pictures:

Hi there Evil Fruit Lord :)

These ornamental pomegranates are common in the nurseries & suburban gardens in Gauteng, Mpumalanga, Limpopo & KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa.

I despised them for a long time because I grew up with a giant variant in my grandmother's garden & was always disappointed at the proliferation of this dwarf type when I started my search for my own giant one. That being said, I'll make a note of the botanical name & report back to you.

I love your blog. I just found it today while looking up different types of fruit hybrids that Michurin developed. I had never seen or heard of red-fleshed apples. Duly bookmarked.

An option course to the college course is to consider an entry level position program. In any case, for the best openings for work consolidating both a college degree alongside a time of temporary job will pick up you better odds of scoring the top looking over occupations. check cashing
