How Long Do Pomegranates Last
Pomegranate seeds, juice, and whole fruits are healthy snacks. They’re also good for juicing and making your own pomegranate recipes. You can store pomegranates for at least two weeks in the refrigerator if you know how to handle them properly.
Pomegranate juice will last between 5 and 10 days in the fridge if the bottle is unopened.
Pomegranate juice will last between 5 and 10 days in the refrigerator if the bottle is unopened. After opening, it will keep for another two weeks before spoiling.
To prevent spoilage, store pomegranate juice in a tightly closed container at temperatures between 35 and 45 degrees Fahrenheit (1.6 to 7.2 degrees Celsius). Do not freeze pomegranate juice as it will become watery and lose its flavor when thawed.
Discard pomegranate juice if it develops an off odor or appearance, grows mold or shows signs of fermentation such as bubbles or bulges rising from inside the bottle. You can safely eat spoiled fruit; however, you should throw out any moldy pieces before cooking them because toxins may be produced by molds that could make you sick if ingested
A whole pomegranate can last for 2 to 3 months if you store it in a cool, dark place after it’s ripe.
- Store whole pomegranates in a cool, dry place.
- Store the fruit in a sealed container or plastic bag to keep out moisture and other debris that could have an adverse impact on its quality.
- Keep your pomegranate in a dark place; sunlight can fade it over time and cause the skin to shrivel up and become tough, so if you’re going to keep it out of storage for any length of time before consuming it, store it where light won’t touch it at all—like inside a cabinet or closet shelf with no windows nearby (but don’t forget about them!).
The seeds of a pomegranate will last for about two weeks in a sealed container in the fridge.
In addition to the fruit’s flesh, pomegranate seeds are edible. They are not toxic and can be eaten raw or cooked. Pomegranate seeds have a sharp, tart flavor and crunchy texture. They can be used in salads, desserts and drinks.
You can eat them fresh or make your own juice.
Pomegranate juice is a good source of vitamins and antioxidants. You can use a juicer to make fresh pomegranate juice, or you can blend the fruit in a blender with some water, ice, and sugar (or honey) for a more refreshing drink. When it comes to cocktails, pomegranate is ideal for adding flavor without any extra sugar because it has such a strong flavor on its own. To make your own cocktail that includes pomegranates in your glass as well as in the recipe itself, simply stir together equal parts vodka or gin with equal parts pomegranate juice and add some lemonade or club soda if desired.
For those who aren’t ready to mix drinks yet but still want something sweet after dinner—or even before bed!—a smoothie may be just what you need. Simply toss together half peeled strawberries (or raspberries), one banana cut into pieces, half cup blueberries (or blackberries), ¼ cup milk of choice (we recommend cashew milk here since it’s easy on digestion), 1 tablespoon chia seeds soaked overnight beforehand in 4 tablespoons water until thickened slightly but not gel-like at all like pudding would be after being refrigerated overnight then blended all together until smooth!
You can eat pomegranates fresh, or you can make your own juice. You can also use them in salads and desserts.
