The origin of “Pomegranate”
Have you ever wondered why they’re called “pomegranates”? It’s such an interesting sounding word…
Pomegranate’s meaning originates from Latin. The roots are “pōmum” and “grānātum”, which mean “apple” and “seeded” respectively. Put together, you get “seeded apple”, pretty fitting once you crack one open! Of course, our pomegranate juice tastes much different than apple juice. But the visual resemblance is there!
