Description

Product features

The pomegranate is a fruit-bearing deciduous shrub in the family Lythraceae, subfamily Punicoideae.

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 arils attach. Containing juice, the arils are formed as a thin membrane derived from the epidermal cells of the seeds. The fruit is intermediate in size between a lemon and a grapefruit, 5–12 cm in diameter with a rounded shape and thick, reddish husk.

As intact arils or juice, pomegranates are used in baking, cooking, juice blends, meal garnishessmoothies, and alcoholic beverages, such as cocktails and wine.
