Pomegranates, or granadas as locals call them are spread all across central Mexico. The fruit is available throughout the year, but it's better and cheaper when in season from late summer to early fall.
To eat the fruit one should divide it into smaller slices, trying not to cut into the juicy fruit-covered seeds. Pomegranate seeds are also used in chiles en nogata, a popular dish originating from Puebla. The dish itself is pepper filled with meat and fruit, then topped with walnut, parsley sauce, and finally covered with red pomegranate seeds.
