chapped pomegranate because of much rain

Like other greek fruit, pomegranate is also afraid of the excess moisture. The photo clearly shows the pomegranate open like a flower. This is a classic example of a situation where just before maturation much rain falls. The bright sun, which replaced the rain, makes the water evaporate rapidly. But the process is not always smooth, and as a result a big part of the crop is non-conforming. Despite the fact that such a pomegranate can not be exported as whole fruit, the crop can not be considered as lost. Cracked pomegranate goes for processing and manufacturing of concentrate.

Such cracks can be seen in the photo in the materials of other fruit, for example - in article about cherry.
