pome·gran·ate

 

/'päm(?)?gran?t/

noun

 

1. an orange-sized fruit with a tough reddish outer skin and sweet red gelatinous flesh containing many seeds.

2. the tree that bears the pomegranate, which is native to North Africa and western Asia and has long been cultivated.

 

This feel-good fruit is a good source of fiber and contains Vitamins A, C, and E; iron, and other antioxidants. Thanks to its growing popularity, you can typically find the seeds separated from the fruit and ready for consumption at most grocery stores.

1. a sweet soft red fruit with a seed-studded surface.

2. the low-growing plant that produces the strawberry, having white flowers, lobed leaves, and runners, and found throughout north temperate regions.

 

No matter if you purchase them fresh or frozen, strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C – helping to boost your immunity! Strawberries also offer a good source of manganese and potassium.
