Iranian farmers in the village of Durak Anari, 150km away from the city of Shahr-e Kord in Western Iran, have started harvesting pomegranate. The village is known as the ‘Village of Red Rubies’ because of its pomegranate gardens.
Family members dry the pomegranate seeds in a traditional ceremony over the rooftops. They also prepare five types of pomegranate pastes in this season.
Here are Fars’ photos of the harvest:
