The pomegranate is a juicy and delicious fruit that can be about 12 cm in size, and is brimming with polyphenols, vitamin C and potassium. The plant is in particular cultivated around the Mediterranean Sea, and grows as a shrubby tree to a maximum of 6 meters in height. In temperate climates the species can be grown as a container plant in a sunny sheltered stand, with a minimum temperature of -5 degrees Celcius. Older plants can resist temperatures up to -12 degrees Celcius, and could be planted in the open ground. With severe frost it is recommended to protect the plant with isolating materials. Because of the numerous seeds pomegranates are a symbol for fertility, and are often mentioned in old writings from Egypt and Greece.
