A fruit-bearing deciduous shrub or small tree growing to 5-8 m tall. The pomegranate is widely cultivated throughout Iran, India and the drier parts of Southeast Asia, Malaya, the East Indies and tropical Africa.

One pomegranate delivers 40% of an adult's daily vitamin C requirement. It is also a rich source of folic acid and of antioxidants.

Pomegranate has high content of polyphenols. The most of the polyphenols in pomegranate are hydrolysable tannins, particularly punicalagins, which have been shown to be the antioxidant responsible for the free-radical savenging ability of pomegranate extract.
