Pomegranate

The fresh, sweet and sour taste is striking

Pomegranate - Product picture

The pomegranate is one of the more famous exotics in European shops. The fruits can be recognised by their bright red colour and the characteristic crown on top. Pomegranates differ in size depending on the variety; under the EAT ME label you will find the fruit in several sizes.

The husk of the round pomegranate is tough and shiny. A pomegranate is a special fruit to eat, and not only because of its fresh, sweet and sour taste. The juicy interior consists of small seeds covered in red, transparent flesh, called sarcotestas. The membrane that holds the sarcotestas together is not edible, just like the skin.

Storage advice

  • Transport and storage: Transport pomegranates under the same conditions as they should be stored: refrigerated, at a temperature between 6 and 8˚C.
  • Shop: The regular fresh produce shelf is the perfect spot for pomegranates.

Variety

Wonderful

Wonderful is the most sought-after pomegranate variety: sweet in taste and red inside and out. This variety is also the most stable in quality, colour and taste. Its shelf life is remarkably good.

Our pomegranates are grown in:

Peru, South Africa, Egypt, India, Israel, Spain and Greece

Growing and harvesting

At the grower's

It takes 7 to 8 years before pomegranate shrubs are ready for harvesting. The shrubs continue to bear fruit for 25 years. The pomegranate fruit indicates when it is time to be removed from the tree: the husk changes colour. The grower also checks the Brix level and acidity to make sure.

Once harvested, the pomegranates go to the packing station to be rinsed, dried, sorted for size and weight and packed. The entire process is strictly monitored to ensure that only the finest and tastiest pomegranates make it to the shops under Nature's Pride's EAT ME label. The peeled seeds of the pomegranate can also be ordered.

Packaging options

  • Packed per 2 pieces, per package of 10 x 2 pieces
  • Loose per 3.5 kg package

The peeled seeds of the pomegranate can also be ordered in a variety of packaging options.

They make for a beautiful display in your cold store: pomegranates in EAT ME packaging. Of course, using your private label is also possible.

Recipes & preparation tips

After cutting open the pomegranate, the edible seeds can be carefully removed from the membrane. There is no shortage of creative recipes with pomegranate: from a salad with pomegranate, mango and arugula to hasselback sweet potatoes. The sweet and sour taste also comes into its own in juices. The cheerful red seeds work well as a garnish in desserts and cakes.
