Pomegranate

Origin:

Mesi:
Stagione: Autumn

The pomegranate (Punica Granatum) is the fruit of a small tree in the Punicaceae family, featuring spiny branches and bright red flowers: it is often grown for ornamental purposes.

The mouth-watering red fruit has a thick, hard, leathery skin containing gelatinous acidic seeds, which is the part we usually eat, and is used in desserts, jams and even savoury recipes. The pomegranate is believed to have originated in Asia, but has been grown in Italy from as early as the 3rd century BC.
