Many vitamins
 

The round, leathery fruit is full of edible seeds nestled in tiny juice sacs.Brimming with vitamins A, C, E and iron, the pomegranate has been cultivated since pre-historic times. Thought to be native to Persia, the fruit is now grown everywhere from Spain to California.
It features richly in mythology, as a symbol of birth, eternal life, and death, owing to its abundance of seeds and ability to 'bleed'.
The deep red skin of the pomegranate was thought to link it to the blood of the earth, a taboo colour. Hence the fruit's association with forbidden desire.
"Iranians believe that Eve was tempted with a pomegranate in the Garden of Eden," said Margaret Shaida, culinary historian and author of The Legendary Cuisine of Persia.
"King Cyrus, who created the Persian Empire, was reputed to have wished for a number of good generals equal to the seeds of a pomegranate.
"Later again, the Prophet Mohammed is said to have urged his followers to eat the fruit in the belief that it purges the system of envy and hatred."
