TORONTO, Oct. 8, 2014 /CNW/ - 'Tis the season for... pomegranates?! POM Wonderful, the largest producer of Wonderful variety pomegranates in North America, is celebrating the return of pomegranate season. This month fresh Wonderful variety pomegranates and POM POMS™ Fresh Arils will be back in season and in Canadian produce aisles.
The festive fruit is great as a snack or even as a unique substitute for another sweet treat, the cranberry, this holiday season. For ten years, POM Wonderful has worked with local chefs and nutrition experts to celebrate the versatility and nutritional benefits of the fruit in dishes and beverages alike.
