The pomegranate (Punica granatum) is a fruit-bearing deciduous shrub which is originated from Asia. The fruit has a red-purple colour and the fruit husk has two parts an outer, hard pericarp, and an inner, spongy mesocarp, which comprises the fruit inner wall where seeds attach.
Pomegranate is originated from the area of Iran and northern India. It has been cultured since antiquity in these areas and later it was introduced in many countries. It was introduced in areas of the Middle East, in China, and in Mediterranean countries during ancient years. Spanish colonists had later introduced it to the Caribbean and the Americas and during the previous century, it was introduced in England.
Pomegranate can be found in many areas around the globe. It is produced in tropical Africa, Middle East, Central Asia, India and parts of the Mediterranean Basin. In addition, it is produced in the USA in the states of Arizona and California.
Pomegranate has a sweet and tart taste. Its flavour is like a combination of cranberries, grapes and apples and has a juice squirting texture.
Using a sharp knife, carefully slice about half an inch from the top of the pomegranate. Gently remove the lid to expose the edible seeds inside. Slice down through each of the white membranes inside the fruit. Pry the sections apart, turn the fruit inside out and pop the seeds out into a bowl. You can eat in a fruit salad, make juice, smoothies or you can add the juice in cocktails.
