3000–2000 BC: Based on excavations of the Early Bronze Age, it is believed that the pomegranate was one of the first cultivated fruits. Most scholars support the belief that the pomegranate was native to Iran and Azerbajan, then cultivated over the whole Mediterranean region of Asia, Africa and Europe, migrating as far east as China where it has been cultivated since the pre-Christian era.

Over 4,000 years ago, the pomegranate became one of the first cultivated fruits. Since then, the pomegranate has traveled the globe and impacted major civilizations throughout history.
The pomegranate was chosen by Middle Eastern civilizations for nutrition and sustenance during long-distance journeys. It was so prized for its hearty skin and juicy interior, the pomegranate achieved symbolic status.
