1: The pomegranate ,a Persian native is one of the oldest fruits know to man! Pomegranates were actually brought to China about 100 B.C by Han dynasty representative, Jang Quin who also introduced many other types of nuts and fruits like the walnut .It has also been an important part in the Middle East diet. Pomegranates now days are used in every day life for different uses as in hair or medicine .

4: The good: This food is very low in Saturated fat,Cholesterol and Sodium.It is also a good source of Dietary Fiber and folate, and a very good source of Vitamin C and Vitamin K. The bad: A large amount of the calories comes from sugar .

5: How to prepare a pomegranate .. Cut off the crown (top) of the pomegranate with a sharp knife. Cut far enough down on the fruit to reveal some of the white inside. Score the skin from top to bottom, making four sections. Do not cut too far into the pomegranate because you do not want to cut through the seeds. Place the fruit in a large bowl of cold water and pull the four sections apart. With the pieces under water, pick out the seeds and discard the white pithy part and the skin. Strain the pomegranate seeds from the water. An average pomegranate will have 800 to 850 seeds, so you can share your treat with friends. Store pomegranate seeds in the refrigerator. Pomegranates typically are shipped ripe and ready to eat, so the seeds can be placed in plastic bags and frozen.
