Pomegranate Harvest

This October I visited our pomegranate molasses producer during the pomegranate harvesting season.

Despite the serenity portrayed in the below pictures , this is a hectic period for all those involved as they scramble, and haggle to obtain the quality, quantity, and price for the fruit that they need in order to fulfil their production requirements. Optimum processing requires the fruits to be fresh so this is a month where night and day are intertwined.
