The pomegranate is a native fruit of Persia. Its name in Latin means “apple with many seeds.” The fruit, which is about the size of an apple, has a thin rind lined with a layer of white embrane which divides the fruit into several cells. Each cell contains numerous seeds encased in a juicy pulp. The outer rind color is pink to deep red when the fruit is mature on the most popular varieties for eating.
