Our Art teacher at school was always going on about texture in our drawing and painting.

I’m sure she’d have wanted to give us this pomegranate as a subject.

Texture is important in writing as well, being (among other things) the grittiness or smoothness imparted by different lengths of words, sentences and paragraphs.

There’s also flavour.

I can tell you that these unripe seeds are extremely sharp.
