Pomegranates (Split from Mutton/lamb; Goat/kid thread

Where do you get the idea that pomegranates were "virtually unknown in the U.S. ten years ago"? Pomegranates have been widely available -- at least in California -- for as long as I can remember (over 40 years). What's trendy is pomegranate juice ... probably because it's this year's (or maybe last year's, because Goji seems to be coming on strong) "it's high in antioxidants so lets make whole product lines out of it and promote them like crazy" fruit, following path blazed by cranberries, blueberries, etc.

Heck, pomegranates are in Greek mythology, which firmly roots them in Western culture for thousands of years.
