A native of the Middle East and the Himalayas, the Pomegranate is a round, sweet, fruit about the size of an apple that grows on top of small trees. The pomegranate is part of the "super fruit" category because it contains an abundance of nutrients that may be beneficial to your health.

Pomegranates are high in polyphenols, which have been shown to be superior antioxidants. Antioxidants are important in the diet for improved disease prevention, brain function and maintaining a healthy, youthful body and appearance.

Pomegranates are in season now and readily available.
