The Punica Granatum or Pomegranate originates in Persia and is nowadays mostly grown around the Mediterranean Sea but also in Latin America and Asia. The fruit of the pomegranate has a deep red color and is about 8 to 12 cm in diameter. The Punica Granatum owes its name to these fruits that are filled with 200 to 800 small round grains, its seeds. The Latin for grain is granum. Grenadine (syrup) is also made from the fruit. The skin of the fruit is not edible but the flesh is deliciously sweet. Especially the leaf of this beautiful tree has an ornamental value for the garden. The Punica has small green leaves that have a red or yellow glow depending on the season. In winter, the pomegranate drops its leaves, leaving the characteristic trunk. Very early in the spring, the tree will sprout again and get beautiful red flowers, which then grow into the large round fruits. The name of the Punica Granatum appears many times in history and there are also several regions named after this plant. A good example is the Spanish city of Granada and the Caribbean island of Grenada. The hand grenade is also named after this tree because the fruits of the Punica Granatum fall and burst apart as soon as they are ripe.
