'Salamander blood, Harry! . . . not pomegranate juice!' -- Hermione Granger (OP17)



Latin pōmum "apple" and grānātum "seeded"


For the Greeks, the pomegranate is the symbol of abundance and good luck, connected historically to the goddess of the harvest, Demeter. The ancient Hebrews saw it as the fruit of the Promised Land, or even the "forbidden fruit" of the Garden of Eden. In Armenia, pomegranate seeds are still scattered to represent future generations of children. Found on the Coat of Arms of the Spanish province of Granada, the French call it "apple of Granada" or  pomme-grenade. Both the name and shape of the fruit led to the common name for the explosive hand grenade. source: Wikipedia
