The pomegranate has easily taken center stage of exotic fruit options, boasting incredible sweetness with tart undertones. Since its ancient cultivation in Persia, the pomegranate has become an iconic fruit in many countries such as Egypt, India, and China. In fact, by 800 C.E., Spain would even name a city (Granada) after this magnificent fruit.
While we enjoy the pomegranate as a delectable exotic fruit today, our ancestors believed it was something much more divine. In fact, the Buddhists believed that the pomegranate was a blessed fruit, which is why it’s so prominent in their arts. Similarly, the Egyptians believed that the pomegranate was a symbol of fertility, so they used it as they prepared dishes for any meal or event. Today, the pomegranate remains a powerful symbol and is seen in the coat of arms for the British Medical Association, the Royal College of Physicians, and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
So why exactly has the pomegranate been so revered?
Aside from its rich flavor and antioxidant offerings, the pomegranate is extremely lush and juicy, which allows it to stand out among many fruits in the Mediterranean and surrounding region. Furthermore, the hide of the fruits also doubled as leather for the Romans, giving the fruit value beyond its edibility.
