A pomegranate is a specialty fruit that consists of a honeycomb–like shell that houses clusters of red, edible seeds. Culturally, pomegranate has enjoyed a sort of ‘quinoa–effect’ in the United States in that since the fruit is more prevalent in the Mediterranean, it is therefore more nutritious than the standard offerings.
Pomegranate tastes good, and has a sort of sour flavor. Normally, the seeds within the fruit’s shell are chewed and then spit out after their juice is extracted. Pomegranate is a very messy fruit and therefore exhibits low portability.
Pomegranate became an official snack on June 13th 2012.
