The pomegranate (family Punicaceae) originates from the area around the Mediterranean. The cultivation of pomegranate has expanded further since then, mainly to the Middle East, because new varieties are hardy, resistant to salty conditions and tolerated more drought. Known pomegranate varieties are Wonderful (California and Israel), Mollar and Tendral (Spain), Schahvar and Robab (Iran), Hicaznar and Beynar (Turkey), Zehri and Gabsi (Tunisia).
(CA) Controlled atmosphere / (ULO) Ultra low oxygen storage pomegranatesPomegranates remain fresh considerably longer by storing them in cold stores equipped with Controlled Atmosphere conditioning. The optimal storage conditions for pomegranates are 3% O2 + 6% CO2. Storage in 2% O2 reduces the risk of low-temperature decay when stored at 5 °C or below. Pomegranates can be stored up to 6 months under CA!
