Pomegranate - Punica granatum
Widely cultivated in the Middle East, Mediterranean, India and California, the fruits can vary in colour from a buttery yellow to an astonishingly vivid scarlet. The Pomegranate is a symbol of fertility, and the many edible seeds are a jewel like pink. The showy flowers range from orange to red, and create a colourful display, seen flourishing in strong sunshine. Traditionally, the Pomegranate is believed to be The Tree of Knowledge.
