Yellow or red in color, this sweet-sour fruit is filled with many seeds each surrounded by what looks like fleshy droplets of juice. To use, score the outside of the fruit, break apart by sections and hold the fruit under running water with a bowl to catch the seeds as they run off. The seeds will sink while the fruit’s rind, membrane and other debris will float to the top where they can be easily discarded. Seeds can be eaten with a spoon or made into juice or jelly.

Calories in Fruit

One-half cup of pomegranate seeds has 72 calories, plus they’re a good source of vitamin C and dietary fiber.
