    okay. seriously? wtf!?!

    this has to be the worst fruit evAR.

    spent 30 minutes trying to get out those little tiny seeds that aren't filling at all. got pomegranate juice spatterings all over my shirt. and it wasn't good at ALL.

    the worst was that I was aboot half way through and then it exploded in a red juicy bonanza. all over the floor. sploosh.

    i gave up and handed it to my roommate to finish. i had had enough of it's blasphemous ways.

    fucking devil fruit.

    came straight from the bunghole of damian himself - forged from the corn that he ate the day before.

    i ain't buying that shit again.

    seed-filled mandarin oranges are a close second.

    you can eat the seeds, craig :p

    and funny enough, the pomengranate has long been associated with both fertility and death for centuries. in the greek myth of hades persephone was forbidden to leave because she had eaten a pomengranate, and after partaking of the fruit of hell she became a part of it.

    Well, I find that I like it because it's like eating quail or ribs.

    It's a pick-at-it fruit. Takes skill and the pleasure is in the process.
    I mean, if you want a real fruit, eat an apple or a pear.

    Pomegranate's are sooooo bourgeoisie. Best eaten curled up on a club chair with some Kafka and a pipe.

    AHHA! so it IS the devil fruit. i knew it.

    i was trying to eat the useless seeds. but i wasn't fruitful.

    i wonder if they have a seedless variety - that'd make things easier. you could just throw it like a softball for what it's worth.

    Pomegranates smell better than they taste.

    <=== does not enjoy crunching on seeds.

    fake fruit is bad for the teeth, especially the ones made out of glass.

    no. ribs are good. quail? iono, never had it.

    and after eating half, it was pissing me off. i only got hungrier. i think i was losing more calories from trying to eat it, then what i was getting back from it's useless little fucker seeds

    The first thing I ever shoplifted was a scented wooden sock-drawer potpourri apple from Eaton's.

    It's equivalent to eating grapes with seeds. Or lychees. Or sunflower seeds.

    Little bursts of tartness. Turns yer mouth all red too.

    What about putting them on a salad? Like a mandarin salad?

    okay. i'm inviting mr tall and mofo over to de-seed my pomegranate so that i can put it in a salad.
  17. graham

    graham Well-Known TRIBEr

    you leave the seeds in the salad for texture, just not all of them

    and you can de-seed them with a spoon in 10 seconds

    MoFo TRIBE Member

    How do you de-seed a pomegranate? That would be torture.

  19. labRat

    labRat TRIBE Member

    oh - so where you you, like an hour ago?

    i'm thinking you're dancin' with the devil himself. tempting me to buy another of your crazy fruit so that i may join the dark side as well.

    I thought the pomegranate was a symbol of fertility (what's the word for that again?) in Greek mythology.

    QUICK, mr tall, get yer thesaurus out, you art history slut.
