A Seasonal Ruby Tuesday

How can you tell that Rosh HaShana, the Jewish New Year, is fast approaching, here in Israel? Easy - just walk into any grocery store, and you'll be greeted by these in the produce section:

A happy and sweet New Year to all!

Don't forget: On Tuesdays, just post any photo you like (it must be one of your own) that contains the color RED and then link to this blog. Happy Ruby Tuesday!

I LOVE pomegranates but they aren't in our stores yet. It's funny how many North Americans have never tasted this fruit.

Patti - these are pomegranates, sweet and delicious. A sure sign are the "crowns" on top!

Marites said...

what re they? sorry, first time i've seen such fruit :D I like their color though. happy RT!

toby said...

Sorry if I was misleading - the crown on top of each one is a hint that they are pomegranates - not that they are sweet :)

A favorite of mine!!!! I just planted a tree last year...hoping in a couple of years I'll have some right in my own back yard!!

My Ruby Tuesday is up...this week, "Sweet William" --scroll down below my Tuesday's Heads or Tails section.

I've never eaten any.
I like the last closeup shot showing the little crown.

Great minds think alike.

But I love your pomegranates better. I can hardly wait for the chag... yum!

Chany said...

Thanks for coming, everyone! Those of you who haven't tried pomegranates should try if you get a chance - they're wonderful, and so pretty!
G6 - I'm quite impressed that your table is already set for the holiday - I'm still in the planning stages.
And Chany - ¡Soy feliz que usted disfrutara de mi fotografía!

Jama said...

Quiet a number of my Chinese neighbour grew pomegranates tree in a pot,the leaves are used to chase away bad luck, I think.

Happy Jewish new year to you.

marian said...

Robin said...

Nothing typifies Rosh Hashana like pomegranates - yum! (Reminds me, I need pomegranate juice for the roast I'm making for chag. Must get that.)

toby said...

Thanks, everybody! And Robin, I'm glad to have helped remind you :)

Leora said...

Um, those are luscious! Love the crowns on the top. Much more grandiose looking than the one I bought yesterday here in NJ.

Auntie E said...

great shot. Love their juices. happy RT

G6 said...

Relax Toby -
That photo is from a previous year.
I imagine that the table would get a bit dusty, no? Besides where would I dump my mail (much to my dear husband's chagrin)?)
Have a lovely chag.
