Where are pomegranates grown and harvested?

Pomegranates are grown all over the world — from California to southern Europe, the Mediterranean, North India, and the Middle East. Red Crown pomegranates are harvested in our own orchards in Azerbaijan, the birthplace of founder Anar Mehdiyev.

How do you choose a pomegranate at the grocery store?

Pomegranates should have thin, tough, unbroken skin that ranges in color from pink to deep red. When you’re choosing a pomegranate, focus on the weight rather than the color — the heavier the pomegranate, the more juice it contains.

What are the health benefits of pomegranates?

Pomegranates are packed with antioxidants. Each cup (250 ml) of Red Crown Pomegranate Juice contains 1103 mg of polyphenols, which is at least three times more than blueberry juice, cranberry juice, green tea, and red wine. Pomegranates are also an excellent source of iron and vitamins. Learn more about our juice.

How do you eat pomegranates?

There is one definitive way to eat pomegranates. Check out our step-by-step guide here.

It’s best to eat the seeds (called arils) right away, but they will last two weeks in a sealed container in the refrigerator or for many months frozen. Unopened pomegranates can last up to one month on the counter or two months in the refrigerator.

How often should you drink pomegranate juice?

Due to the incredible health benefits of the fruit, we recommend drinking pomegranate juice every day or working it into your other recipes.

How long does pomegranate juice last?

We recommend storing your Red Crown Pomegranate Juice in the fridge and consuming it within five days of opening it.
