The pome in pomegranate comes from the Latin word for apple and granate from the word for seed. Originally from Persia and northern India, pomegranates are now cultivated around the world, this variety comes to us from California.
Ancient texts describe the pomegranate as a sacred fruit that brought fertility, abundance and luck. We need at least two of those these days.
Today, the pomegranate has a whole bunch of health benefits that we are sure our Tropifruiters are pretty well versed in.
The peel of the pomegranate is inedible, but once you open the red exterior, you'll find a beautiful array of crimson-colored seeds that have a tart, tangy and sweet combination of flavors that will leave you wanting more.
