Last Fall Harvest at the Nunna Farm

Even though it is wet and drizzling here in California, we started  our last fall harvest from the orchard. This year, our pomegranates have done better than any other year before. I would never dream of wasting any fruit that is grown in our orchard. I have been very busy drying persimmons and making pomegranate jams for my Christmas gift baskets. Even though I am appreciative and feel blessed with this overabundance of pomegranates and persimmons, I think I am ready for a break from harvesting.

Stay tuned for recipe for pomegranate jelly in future posts.

  1. Oh my! Such lovely fruits. I pay an arm and a leg for each persimmon here in the North East :-). I had them in Japan where they are sold in bundles of threes.


  2. Absolute treat for the eyes, Ms. are very lucky to have such a bountiful orchard...

  5. Lovely photos of the bounty from your orchard. You are so lucky, here in southern New Mexico we had a freeze 2 winters ago and still have not had any pomegranates.

    I have a question, would you share how you make your pomegranate jam? I have made jam and preserves my whole life--but a few years ago we had an abundance of pomegranates and I tried to make jam. It turned out very runny so we ended up using it for margaritas or ice cream topping. Any idea what I did wrong? Thanks!

    1. Joyce,
      I will do a post on pomegranate jelly near future. Stay tuned.

  7. Two of my favorite fruits....pomegranates and persimmons. Very tasty, unless you get an unripe persimmon. The colors are beautiful together too.
