Bum Lamp and Pomegranates (ρόδι)

Pomegranates (Punica granatum) are native to southeastern Europe and Asia and were grown in ancient Egypt, Babylon, India, and Iran. Growing wild as a bush, if cultivated it can become an attractive landscaping tree which provides fruit with edible seeds.

Bum Lamps (Fractum lampadae) are a town and landscape feature which an observant observer can observe from time to time. Though observable all the year, crucial times for observing bum lamps can be only a matter of days or, if the bum lamp is dormant, up to several months. The fruit is inedible except in some sideshow attractions.
