It was love at first site. And then it was love and first bite.
A Pomegranate tastes incredible and it is a one of a kind fruit. Apples, oranges, bananas, and grapes come in all shapes and sizes. But a pomegranate is unique. With 613 seeds, a number of great significance in Judaism and a special product of Israel. It is no wonder, Avrohom Banda, selected this fruit as the name of his store in Brooklyn.
