The pomegranate ia an ancient fruit filled with deliciousness and symbolism. Almost universally, it is a symbol of abundance, fertility, sensuality and good deeds because of the multitude of seeds packed inside its husk. Today, pomegranates are prized for their antioxidant and potent nutritional value, just as they were in ancient Egypt when the seeds were believed to heal intestinal disorders.
The Punctilious Mr. P's 'Pomegranate' place card set honors this ancient fruit by showing off its deep ruby red color and voluptuous form.
In Judaica, the pomegranates were known in Ancient Israel as the fruits which the scouts brought to Moses to demonstrate the fertility of the "promised land". Some Jewish scholars believe the pomegranate was the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden. It is traditional to eat pomegranates on Rosh Hashana because, with its numerous seeds, it symbolizes fruitfulness.
