I only recently learned that Pomegranate, such a gorgeous fruit, has given its name to the military grenade.[8]  It comes from French term grenade for pomegranate  – as soldiers commented on the similar shape of early grenades and the name entered common usage. The name pomegranate derives from medieval Latin pōmum “apple” and grānātum “seeded”.

I shall stick to using it in salads, puddings and such like, rather than lobbing it around my garden!
