Pomegranate

Pomegranate is also known as the Granada or Chinese apple. The pomegranate is original from Iran to the Himalayas in northern India and was cultivated and naturalized over the whole Mediterranean region. The fruit can be recognized by its round shape, hard and shiny yellow or red coloured skin and by its unusual flesh that contains around 600 small edible seeds. The edible seeds have a red, fleshy cover and have a sweet/sour flavour. Both the seeds and flesh are embedded in a clear membrane. Although the membrane is also edible, it has no flavour and is typically not eaten. Besides the whole pomegranate we also carry the Ready- to-Eat arils in our assortment.
