Pomegranates are sometimes referred to as the Chinese apple or “jewel of the winter” in North America. Pomegranates are in season during early winter. You can freeze Pomegranate Seeds so you can enjoy them after their season has come and gone.

The primary source of Pomegranate’s benefits come from its antioxidant content, particularly ellagitannin compounds like punicalagins and punicalins, which account for about half of the Pomegranate’s antioxidant ability. It’s also an excellent source of the antioxidant vitamin C, with one Pomegranate providing about 40 percent of the daily requirement for this vitamin.
