== == Pomegranates are ripe when the skin is a crimson color, and the fruit should feel heavy and the skin should be shiny. You should avoid fruit with cracks and splits in the skin.
A pomegranate is ripe when the skin is bright red, and you are able to scratch it with your fingernail. not applying too much pressure!
