Seeded Apple

Uploaded: March 01, 2012


Pomegranates are cherished for their exquisite beauty, flavor, color, and health benefits for centuries. They are symbolic of prosperity and abundance in virtually every civilization. The name pomegranate derives from Middle French, pomme garnete, literally "seeded apple". They are sometimes referred to as a Chinese apple.
