LoreThe single genus of the family Punciaceae was classified by Linnaeus who Latinized the ancient name, Malum puncium, which translates to "apple of Carthage" which was its early common name. Pomegranate fruit came to symbolize fertility due to its abundance of seeds. A culinary staple in Spanish and Middle Eastern cuisine, the pomegranate has emerged as a popular source of Vitamins C and B5, potassium and antioxidant polyphenols.
