The pomegranate shrub or small tree grows to about 20 to 33 ft high. With multiple spiny branches the tree has been known to live many years. Pomegranate trees come in both fruit filled and fruitless varieties.
Each pomegranate will have between 200 to 1400 seeds. Each seed is surrounded with pulp. Fruit ranges in color from white to deep red or purple.
These seeds go nicely into the oatmeal pomegranate muffins I found here
These muffins have a delicious topping. If you like this then be generous when sprinkling muffin tops. This will ensure that the entire muffin top will be covered when the muffin expands as it bakes.
While the POM pomegranate juice is a requested ingredient if you do not have it dont worry it does not impact in the taste of the muffin.
The recipe calls for more sugar than most but if you don't like overly sweet muffins then go for 3/4 cup of sugar. If you like it sweeter use a full cup of sugar. This is a personal preference
