How to size up a pomegranate

Pomegranates, about the size of an orange, have leathery, reddish-pink skin. Inside, bitter membrane separates little sacs filled with hundreds of seeds. A translucent red pulp that has a slightly sweet and tart taste surrounds these seeds—those juicy, ruby-red arils are what you’re after. Select fruit that is heavy for its size with bright, fresh colour and blemish-free skin.

You can refrigerate whole pomegranates for up to 2 months, or store them in a cool, dark place for up to a month.
