In the past, the seeds of pomegranate were used to make ink and its skin to make dye.
Pomegranate is a refreshing fruit filled with small ruby-coloured seeds, called arils, that have a sweet yet tangy taste.
Cultivated for 5,000–6,000 years, it is native to the Middle East. Thanks to its thick skin and very juicy flesh, it soon became a staple for travellers and caravan drivers. The Moors introduced it to Spain, where it gave its name to the city of Granada (the same word in Spanish).
