Iran’s Zagros Mountains, which run across the country from the northwest to the south, are famous for being a perfect habitat for pomegranates, which are known in Persian as Anar. The fruit, with its characteristic trumpet-like flowers, blossoms in late May and early June, and is enjoyed by Iranians in autumn and winter. Iran is the second largest producer of pomegranates globally, and the fruit plays a central role in local cuisine and culture.

These photos show pomegranate blossoms in Shahreza, in the southern part of Isfahan Province.
