NBT Tip: Selecting a Pomegranate

It’s officially pomegranate season and my oh my, they’re bright, juicy and DELICIOUS! Plus they have loads of health benefits like digestion improvement, disease protection and cancer prevention among others.

  • To select a good pomegranate, you have to hold it and feel it as opposed to relying just on looks.
  • A round pomegranate is unripe so first try to select one that’s not round but rather one with some angles.
  • Feel the weight of the fruit as the heavier it is, the more juice it will contain.
  • Select a big one as opposed to a smaller one. 
  • Make sure the crown of the fruit is slightly closed. When the petals lean inwards it means the fruit is ripe.
  • Make sure the outer skin is firm and tight. If you can easily scratch the peel, toss it back and choose another.
