Health Benefit of Pomegranate (Wikipedia)
The name "pomegranate" derives from Latin pomum ("apple") and granatus ("seeded"). This has influenced the common name for pomegranate in many languages (e.g., German Granatapfel, seeded apple). The genus name Punica is named for the Phoenicians, who were active in broadening its cultivation, partly for religious reasons. In classical Latin, where "malum" was broadly applied to many apple-like fruits, the pomegranate's name was malum punicum or malum granatum, the latter giving rise to the Italian name melograno, or less commonly melagrana...
How To Make Pomegranate Wine
The lowly pomegranate, native to Europe and Asia, was introduced to America as a landscaping curiosity rather than a fruit tree. Once just a curiosity in Eastern gardens, it is both a good ornamental shrub or tree and a delightful taste treat. It also makes an excellent medium wine. Punica granatum, grows to 15 feet in height. A deciduous tree, it sports orange-to-red flowers in the spring and the leaves turn a bright yellow in the fall. In between, dozens of red, thick-skinned fruit grow, typically 3-4 inches in diameter but I've seen them as large as 10 inches. These are packed with hundreds of juicy seeds layered between a white, pithy membrane. New leaves are bronze colored, narrow and glossy, while mature leaves are a deep glossy green. They tolerate any soil and are quite drought tolerant as well, although drought will retard the size of the fruit. They produce best in full sun and tolerate our heat without a problem. The variety "Wonderful" is quite popular in Texas and a good producer. "Albescens" is a white-flowering variety...
