A symbol of prosperity and fertility

Granada Fruit

Above is Pomegranate or locally known as the Granada fruit, a popular plant during Christmas. The plant is valued for its fruits, medicinal properties and as an ornamental or garden plant. In Asian countries, it is used as a material for bonsai.

The plant’s medicinal properties are sourced from a lot of its parts. For instance, the rind of its fruit, as well as its bark, are used as a traditional remedy against diarrhea, dysentery and intestinal parasites.  The fruit is a good source of vitamin C, vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), potassium and polyphenols, such as tannins, flavonoids, and a good source of dietary fiber.

Since the fruit contains so many seeds, the Pomegranate symbolizes  prosperity and fertility. Thus it plays a pivotal role in some cultures during Christmas and the New Year.
