Pomegranates grow well in California.

 

A pomegranate fruit was one of my favorites as a child and still is. It is so delicious, worth the effort it takes to peel.I f you put one in a bowl or sink of water, it is less messy and also easier to peel. You can thank my aunt for that piece of advice. She uses them in a particular salad that she serves. Recently I read something about the pomegranate seeds being very good for you.  They have large quantities of antioxidants also.

How to Peel a Pomegranate

Pomegranates used to be my favorite fruit as a child. I still do enjoy eating them very much. My aunt says to peel them underwater, it is less messy that way. Recently I read that the seeds of pomegranates have great nutritional value. Seriously, we should all go buy some today!

The pomegranate is from ancient times, and was originally from the area of what is known as Iran and Iraq.  Today the pomegranate tree is all over the world from the middle east, to India, to the Mediterranean, Africa, in the U.S, California and Arizona.  One of my favorite dishes is a middle eastern pomegranate chicken.  Obviously, they have been using this fruit for a long time!
