Pomegranate (Punica granatum), is a fruit originating from Iran and now cultivated in many countries around the Mediterranean Sea. It used to be cooked as juice though this role is now way past. We can find it sold for consumption as a fruit by now, and indeed, it’s really fresh and amazingly accomodate life at the warmest part of the day. But wait, I didn’t track back to the few papers about domestication yet, that I was already swamped into an incredibly huge amount of litterature dealing with its potential other economical uses as pharmaceutical. You won’t believe it!
