White pomegranate װײַסער מילגרױם
I was never all that amused by the milder, sweeter varieties of watermelon or cherries in their white or pale yellow finery. The redder the better, I usually say, but these Spanish white pomegranates were a revelation. They are almost as deep red inside as common pomegranates, and much more sweet and flowery. The real miracle is the juiciness of the seeds. They are about twice as large as common pomegranate seeds, but the inner fibrous kernel is much smaller, so they are almost all pulp. I found this one on my recent visit to
The Yiddish word for white pomegranate is װײַסער מילגרױם (vayser milgroym).
Ever seen one of these, Sweetnicks?
