Our pomegranates are not treated. As a result, the leathery peel dries naturally.
The valuable content remains unchanged and the hard part of the peel keeps the fruit even better fresh. A great tip for an easier handling in every kitchen is, that you could wrap the fruits in a damp cloth for a few hours.
If you keep your pomegranates cool and dry, they are well storable for a fair amount of time.

Advice - if you need larger amounts of seeds, try following: Quarter the fruit horizontally, then cut off the stalk, afterward break the pomegranate apart. We recommend you to use a bowl filled with some water for that. The seeds will fall down in it. The white pellicles and the seed pods will float on the water and are now easy to separate apart.
The water also has the advantage of avoiding juice splashing, which might occur, since some seed might burst out randomly when they are released from their housing.
The juice tends to cause stubborn stains on clothing and tablecloths, which are most likely difficult to remove. If a stain happens to you, we recommend you to wash the spoiled fabric piece first. The important part: hang it into the sun and let it dry afterward.
The pomegranate is a pseudo berry fruit that grows on trees,
which are about 6 ( ≙ 19ft and 8.22 inches ) meters high, but can reach sometimes the 8-meter mark ( ≙ 26ft and 2.96 inches). Our trees do not reach this maximum size as they receive their trim every 1-2 years for a better fruit quality.
The fruits have an approximately 5mm thick, smooth-leathery peel and are crowned by hardened sepals. In the jelly-like pulp, there are usually 3 lower and 6 upper skinned rows. Encased into those you'll find the about 7mm (≙ 0.28 inches) long and 1mm (≙ 0.04 inches) to 2mm (≙ 0.08) wide pointed seed cores. Each one is wrapped in a soft-fleshy, glazed, pink, juicy, sweet-aromatic-tasting seed coat. The pomegranate received its name not just by a random pic, it comes from the word granatus and stands for the meaning of being corny and describes the richness of seeds.
These seed cores make up the main ingredient of the fruit.
The seed coats can be cut into small pieces and set to dry.
Hence this process is completed, they can be used as a tea infusion.
Please do this only moderately, because they got a high content of tannic acid.
