Pomegranate fruit

Pomegranate is definitely one of my all-time favorite fruits, next to bananas and pineapples. It is amazing to have found out all the medical properties that pomegranate has. Some believe that Eve didn’t give Adam an apple, but a pomegranate fruit to eat.

The word Pomegranate is derived from the Middle French term; Pomme Garnete which in rough translation means “seeded apple” which fits this unusual fruit that many people are surprised upon opening to find not a whole substance of edible fruit by many lovely little seeds that resemble tiny grapes.

I share with you what I’ve found so far. Feel free to leave a comment.
