Group of Pomegranate Fruits
The picture shows the characteristic shades and color of the pomegranate, and suggests the wide variation in size of the different fruits. It is said that there are several varieties grown in Bengal, one being seedless, and another growing, it is alleged, to the size of the ordinary human head. This report may be taken with a certain allowance, but it suggests possibilities of development of the fruit through selective breeding that have as yet not been realized in this country. The fruit is worthy of more attention than has hitherto been given it by horticulturists.
