BioTropic introduces organic pomegranates from Söke in Turkey

The pomegranate is a very old crop plant, which was even cultivated in ancient Egyptian gardens. Originally native to the area between Iran and India, the pomegranate has been grown and appreciated in the Mediterranean regions for a long time. In the ancient world, the fruit was known as a symbol of fertility because of its many seed kernels and in biblical paradise it is said to have been the apple from the tree of knowledge. Pomegranates are one of the more nutritious types of fruit. They contain many antioxidants, potassium and B-vitamins.
