Hebrew - pomegranate, pomegranate tree, pomegranates
POMEGRANATE

Grained apple, the Punica Granatum of Linnaeus; called also Malum Granatum, in French pomme granate, whence its English name. The tree grows wild in Persia and Syria, as generally in the south of Europe and north of Africa. It is low, with a straight stem, reddish bark, many and spreading branches, dark green lancet-formed leaves, and large and beautiful crimson blossoms. The fruit is of the size of an orange, of a tawny brown, with a thick astringent coat, containing an abundance of seeds, each enveloped in a distinct, very juicy, pink coat, whose flavor, in a wild state, is a pure and very strong acid; but in the cultivated plant, sweet and highly agreeable. The ripe pulp was eaten by itself or with a sprinkling of sugar; or its juice was made into a sherbet. The value of the fruit and the beauty of the flower made the pomegranate welcome in gardens, Song of Solomon 4:13 6:7,11 8:2 Joel 1:12. It was abundant in Palestine, Numbers 13:23 Deuteronomy 8:8. Artificial pomegranates were used as ornaments on the robe of the high priest, Exodus 28:33, and also as an architectural ornament, 1 Kings 7:18.
