Pomegranate, a juicy delicious fruit, has lots of curative effects. It is well-coloured and its grains are well-arranged beneath the skin. In the Iranian culture, this endemic fruit is considered sacred and believed to be a gift from Heaven. The best of this fruit grows in the southeast of Shiraz in Darya strait of Gav Koshak region. The green gardens are whimsically-decorated with red blinking pomegranates.
