The fruit is a false berry, subglobose in shape, shiny red, yellowish green or whitish, crowned with a persistent calyx, and has a hard rind. Internally, the fruit has few to many locules containing many seeds. The testa of the seed is filled with a whitish or reddish pulp (aril) and an acid juice.
The seeds may vary in size and hardness. Fruits with hard seeds possess poor eating quality and, therefore, cultivars producing soft seeded fruits are preferred. Pomegranates are also valued for their therapeutic properties.
Pomegranates are shipped by Airfreight and Seafreight in corrugated Boxes of 1 Dozen.
