Pomegranate (melograno in Italian) means “apple with many seeds.” The rustic fruit appears in mid-October in shades ranging from a pale, reddish yellow to a deep, crimson red. The seeds packed inside, called arils, are sweet and tart juice sacs that can be eaten fresh or add flavor and texture to recipes. Color and external blemishes are no indication of quality. The best rule of thumb? The heavier the fruit, the juicier it will be.
