The likelihood of a pomegranate purchase increased three percentage points from Fresh Trends 2012.

The presence of children plays an obvious role in pomegranate purchases. Consumers with kids at home were twice as likely to buy the red fruit as those without kids.

I have trouble finding nice ones. They are costly and are usually going bad. Mostly you can not even find any at all!

I am not sure where you live, but I am from Southern California and POM Fresh Pomegranates by Wonderful Brands can be found at local supermarkets all over the country. Ralphs, Vons are my local stores and the Pomegranates are large, juicy, beautiful, and FRESH! Ralph's had been selling them 2 for $4.00 and they are BIG! I work for POM Wonderful - Wonderful Brands and I visit the markets, and merchandise their Pomegranates. And they are beautiful! If you visit our website: http://www.pomwonderful.com/ there is a coupon for $.50 off. I hope you find 'em and enjoy them.
