When you cut open a pomegranate you will be amazed at the number of ruby-colored seeds inside.
Many are doubtful about eating the pomegranate seeds whole, since most just extract the juice. However, most of the fiber and antioxidants actually come from the pomegranate seeds.
It really comes down to personal preference… but eating pomegranate seeds is completely safe and allows you to enjoy the full benefits of the pomegranate fruit. Many just chew on all the seeds to get all the juice and then spit the seeds out.
If you don’t like the pomegranate seeds then you can make pomegranate juice… or there’s another nice method I use a lot. Take the pomegranate fruit, intact, and roll it over a hard surface just enough to release the juice from the seeds inside but not breaking the fruit’s skin. Then make a small hole and with a straw drink the juice!
Pomegranate seeds are easily separated from the white membrane that surrounds them by putting it all in a bowl of cold water, then carefully separating the pomegranate seeds. You’ll notice the white membrane floats to the top.
If you’re interested in buying pomegranate seeds to grow a pomegranate plant, be sure you have plenty of space for planting. Pomegranates grow on large trees and require time and patience. Smaller pomegranate trees that can be grown in small gardens. Make sure you buy the correct pomegranate seeds.
