Originally from Asia Minor (Persia and Afghanistan), pomegranate (Latin name “Punica granatum”) and its fruits were brought in Europe by Phoenician merchants. Italian word derives from “mela” (apple), for its shape and colour, and “grana” (grain), for the consistency of its internal seeds, very similar to corn. It is one of the main subjects in many stories and legends, and it was a sacred plant to Juno and Venus in ancient Greece.
