  • Description:
    Malum Punicum was designated by the Romans as pomegranate, typical plant of the countries of temperate climate, which grew mainly in North Africa near Carthage.
    However the plant is of very ancient origin; It is already mentioned in the Old Testament among the plants of the Promised Land.
    The Phoenicians considered the pomegranate fruit almost as divine, so much that many figures of Egyptian and pre-Hellenic origin represented goddesses with this fruit.
    Egyptian tombs, dated 2,500 years before Christ, still testify the importance they had.
    In southern Spain the pomegranate was so present that even a city was named after it: Granada. In this city as well as around the world the pomegranate is considered a symbol of prosperity and wealth. In addition to the medicinal numbness of the pomegranate bark, another curious application as food is known: it was the forerunner of the so-called "grenadine" (pomegranate syrup), prepared with pomegranate juice and syrup enriched with karkadeh (hibiscus).
