Pomegranate is native to Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran and the Himalayas in northern India. Scientifically known as Punica granatum, this fruit comes from a deciduous shrub growing growing to 5–8 m tall. The fruit has been cultivated in other parts of the world including Algeria, Azerbajian, Turkey and South East Asia, East Indies and tropical Africa and has been introduced into Latin America and California by Spanish settlers in 1769.
