Pomegranates

Pomegranates

In Season: Early fall through the early winter months is the prime time for pomegranates A seasonal favorite for its rich color and tangy taste, the pomegranate features tiny seeds surrounded by a sac of sweet-tart juice and a thin skin. The English name for this fruit comes from the French pomme grenate, meaning "seedy apple." The pomegranate is native to Iran and the Himalayas in northern India and has been cultivated in the entire Mediterranean region since ancient times. The leading commercial variety of pomegranate is aptly named Wonderful. Originated in Florida, the Wonderful is widely used for juicing. For more information, please visit:
