For fruit lovers and health enthusiasts, October is an exciting time of year because it marks the beginning of fresh pomegranate season. A refreshing addition to your fruit bowl and a great snack to enjoy after a workout, POM Wonderful ® pomegranates can be purchased whole or, if you're looking for a nutritious snack on-the-go, they are available in ready-to-eat packages called POM POMS™ Fresh Arils.

Available in the produce section of all major Canadian retailers, POM Wonderful offers a full range of delicious products for pomegranate fans from the fresh fruit to POM POMS™ Fresh Arils, to 100% Pomegranate Juice from concentrate, POM Super Tea ™ and more.

"Pomegranates and their arils offer a unique alternative to cranberries in holiday cooking, baking and even decorating," says Dahlia Reinkopf, senior director of marketing, POM Wonderful. "With the start of the growing season upon us, there's no better time for Canadians to make use of and enjoy this tasty fruit."

The versatility of the pomegranate is an added bonus that makes it so special. POM Wonderful ® pomegranates offer a sweet burst of flavour which enhances popular dishes and drinks alike. With National Pomegranate Month in November, consider adding the fruit to popular seasonal favourites like POM-brined turkey with POM cranberry sauce or with pumpkin in the POM Pumpkin Risotto.
