Origin of the pomegranate
The pomegranate fruit grows naturally in the Mediterranean area. Its origin is from the Middle East, where its numerous health benefits were already popular. Spain is Europe's largest producer of pomegranates, this production is mainly concentrated in Alicante, Valencia and Murcia, where the production of organic pomegranates is increasing to meet the growing demand of European countries, the importance of surface and economic production of pomegranate in Spain is very remarkable, as it is one of the main pomegranate producing countries in the world, whose fruits go to the domestic market, most of which is exported to Europe.
Currently, the pomegranate tree surface area in Spain exceeds 2,500 ha, with a production of around 22,300 mt (2010). This production is mainly concentrated in the province of Alicante (90 %).
The pomegranate tree is an alternative fruit tree for areas, especially where poor soil conditions or poor irrigation water quality prevent the profitable exploitation of other fruit trees, as it is a tree that has suffered a lot and withstands bad weather conditions, drought, heat, the tree survives but bears little or very small fruit. However, if the pomegranate tree is cultivated in better conditions with a lot of care, the results obtained are spectacular in our climate, which is ideal for this type of crop.
