Punica granatum is the scientific name of the historical fruit pomegranate. From the beginning of mankind, it has been a very important fruit or object not only for its taste but its symbolism and significance in different religions. In Islam, it is considered that the fruit is from heaven and traditionally Middle Easterns think of it as a symbol of fertility where the groom splits one pomegranate open while the newly wedded couple enters their new home. While talking about Christianity, it has several sacred meanings starting from the resurrection and everlasting life to symbolizing the passion of Christ. The belief of Judaism refers to the red fruit on the bride's cheeks behind her veil as two halves of the pomegranate.
