Pomegranate were probably among the first fruits to be cultivated in the Middle East, about 5,000 or 6,000 years ago.
Its highly resistant peel, which makes the fruit long-lasting, made pomegranate one of the staple foods for travellers and caravaneers very early in history.
It is actually a large berry with seeds individually surrounded by a red pulp.
