PhotoHunt: Fruit

Clementines are one of my favorite winter fruits. These were for sale on the green grocer barge close to San Barnaba in Venice.


San Barnaba barge

Also in Venice, a relief with five pomegranates (another favorite fruit in the winter time)~


I think these are apples or maybe peaches. This relief is in the Rialto Market area of Venice and a few hundred years ago, it was the emblem of the fruit-sellers' guild (Confraternita dei Fruttarioli) whose headquarters were here.


Persimmons? This was taken in December so it's another winter fruit. The dome in the background belongs to the church of San Rocco.


Thanks for visiting and have a good weekend. :)

Beautiful shots. I love clementines too. I like the way you included the wall sculpture of fruit.

Great posy Annie! I like how you included the artwork as well :) Have a lovely weekend :)

This is the first time I see persimmons on a tree.


Hi Annie --

You persimmon pic reminds me of the time my mother and I were strolling around the grounds of a palace in Seoul when we came across a blooming persimmon tree. We didn't expect to see it and initially thought the fruit were oranges! ;b

The clementines look pretty good. Glad to see these winter fruits, they are also exported to Singapore.

Where is the pomegranates relief? I've never seen it. It's so detailed!

Thanks for your comments, everyone.

Daniel, it's close to La Fenice, behind it but across the canal that runs along side. I think that's right but you know how Venice is. :)

Hi Annie, lovely collection of the various fruit that are available in Venice. I really like that last photo. Leafless tree with fresh fruit with a partial dome in the background.

Have a wonderful weekend.

I love clementines too !
Beautiful pictures !

Lot more fruit that don't grow in North Idaho is coming in for holidays. Love those pomegranates.

Coffee is on

Hi Annie. Those clementines look absolutely fresh and yummy! So different from ours at Walmart. I didn't expect to see persimmons in Venice; they look like the kind in Japan.

The fresh fruit(s) all look like gems! Soon, I can sink my teeth into some of those clementines. And, I have to find the persimmon relief this time.
