Our Greek pomegranates are of the Ermioni variety, which are unusually light coloured, unevenly shaped and sometimes have brown stripes. Their seeds have an intense colour and are especially juicy and flavourful.
Pomegranates will keep for about four weeks in the refrigerator or cellar. The fruit may shrivel slightly, but the thick skin keeps the inside juicy and fresh. Check your pomegranates for bruises and minor damage as soon as you receive them. Eat these ones first. Dry, grey-green mould in the calyx is normal and harmless. If you find mould anywhere else on the fruits, remove them from the crate immediately. You can also freeze the seeds: It is best to lay them out flat on a plate/tray and then put them frozen into a container so that the seeds stay loose.
