Which are the fruits

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009
Botanically, all fruits have seeds, so some of our vegetables, like tomatoes, are technically fruits. You can find an explanation as to why we call them vegetables here, in our Frequently Asked Questions.

My husband and I make homemade wine. We were given a container of pure pomegranate concentrated juice. I cannot find a recipe that shows anything but X amount of pomegranates. Could you please tell me how many pomegranates are equivalent to 1 litre of this concentrated juice???? Or even 1 cup of juice equals how many pomegranates???Thanks so much.

I’m afraid that I could find only 1 reference to making juice from pomegranates, which suggests that the average fruit will yield 4-6oz, or ½ to ¾ cup of juice. Like all fruits, some are juicier than others.  Read More
