Some information about pomegrantes from Wikipedia

so The pomegranate originated in the region extending from Iran to northern India,[2] and has been cultivated since ancient times throughout the Mediterranean region.

So that tha Spanish America in the late 16th century and into California by Spanish settlers in 1769.[2]

and The fruit is typically in season in the Northern Hemisphere from September to February,[3] and in the Southern Hemisphere from March to May.

As intact sarcotestas or juice, pomegranates are use in baking, cooking .

Today, it is widely cultivate throughout the Middle East and Caucasus region, north and tropical Africa, the Indian subcontinentCentral Asia, the drier parts of Southeast Asia, and parts of the Mediterranean Basin.[2] 

So It is also cultivate in parts of Arizona and the San Joaquin Valley in California.[4] 

In the 20th and 21st centuries,

it has become more common in the shops and markets of Europe and the Western Hemisphere.

The name pomegranate derives from medieval Latin pōmum “apple” and grānātum “seeded”.[5] Possibly stemming from the old French word for the fruit, pomme-grenade, the pomegranate was known in early English as “apple of Grenada”—a term which today survives only in heraldic blazons.

This is a folk etymology, confusing the Latin granatus with the name of the Spanish city.

Garnet derives from Old French grenat by metathesis,

from Medieval Latin granatum as used in a different meaning “of a dark red color”.

This derivation may have originated from pomum granatum, describing the color of pomegranate pulp.

The French term for pomegranate, grenade, has given its name to the military grenade.[8]

shrub or small tree growing 5 to 10 m (16 to 33 ft) high, the pomegranate has multiple spiny branches and is extremely long-lived,

with some specimens in France surviving for 200 years.[2] 

P. granatum leaves are opposite or subopposite,

glossy, narrow oblong,

entire, 3–7 cm (1 14–2 34 in) long and 2 cm (34 in) broad.

The flowers are bright red and 3 cm (1 14 in) in diameter, with three to seven petals.[2] Some fruitless varieties are grown for the flowers alone.

Fruit, sarcotesta and seed

An opened pomegranatePomegranate flowerFruit setting

Red-purple in color, the pomegranate fruit husk has two parts: an outer, hard pericarp,

And an inner, spongy mesocarp (white “albedo”), which comprises the fruit inner wall where seeds attach.[9]

 Membranes of the mesocarp are organized as nonsymmetrical chambers that contain seeds inside sarcotestas,

which are embedded without attachment to the mesocarp.[9] Containing juice, the sarcotesta is formed as a thin membrane derived from the epidermal cells of the seeds.[10][11] The number of seeds in a pomegranate can vary from 200 to about 1,400.[12]

Botanically, the edible fruit is a berry with seeds and pulp produced from the ovary of a single flower.[10]

 The fruit is intermediate in size between a lemon and a grapefruit,

5–12 cm (2–4 12 in) in diameter with a rounded shape and thick, reddish husk.[2]

In mature fruits, the juice obtained by compressing the seeds yields a sour flavor due to low pH (4.4) and high contents of polyphenols,[13] which may cause a red indelible stain on fabrics.[14] Primarily,

And the pigmentation of pomegranate juice results from the presence of anthocyanins and ellagitannins.[13][15]


The most abundant phytochemicals in pomegranate juice are polyphenols,

So including the hydrolyzable tannins called ellagitannins formed when ellagic acid 

And gallic acid bind with a carbohydrate to form pomegranate ellagitannins,

also known as punicalagins.[15] The red color of the juice is attributed to anthocyanins,[15] such as delphinidincyanidin, and pelargonidin glycosides.[44] 

And Generally, an increase in juice pigmentation occurs during fruit ripening.[44] The phenolic content of pomegranate juice is degraded by processing and pasteurization techniques.[45]

Pomegranate peel contains high amount of polyphenols, condensed tannins, catechins, and prodelphinidins.[46][47] The higher phenolic content of the peel yields extracts for use in dietary supplements and food preservatives.[48]

Pomegranate seed oil contains punicic acid (65%), palmitic acid (5%), stearic acid (2%), oleic acid (6%), and linoleic acid (7%).[49]

P. granatum is grown for its fruit crop, and as ornamental trees and shrubs in parks and gardens.

And Mature specimens can develop sculptural twisted-bark multiple trunks and a distinctive overall form.

So Pomegranates are drought-tolerant,

And can be grown in dry areas with either a Mediterranean winter rainfall climate or in summer rainfall climates.

In wetter areas, they can be prone to root decay from fungal diseases. They can be tolerant of moderate frost, down to about −12 °C (10 °F).[16]

Insect pests of the pomegranate can include the pomegranate butterfly Virachola isocrates and the leaf-footed bug Leptoglossus zonatus

, and fruit flies and ants are attracted to unharvested ripe fruit.[17]
