I just seeded a pomegranate, and instead of red / deep pink seeds, the seeds are pale pink / white. What does this mean? Are they ok to eat?

A quick Google search for "white pomegranate" seems to show that the color depends on the specific pomegranate cultivar. –  nico Sep 16 '12 at 14:56

Some pomegranate varieties produce pink or white seeds so yours sounds perfectly normal. I have had white seeds and they are as delicious as the red ones. Go for it.

Apparently it's a different variety of pomegranate. They are good, but taste sweeter than the deep red seeds, which have a great tart flavor.

I don't think I'd call pale pink/white the normal color for pomegranates: google.com/search?q=pomegranate&tbm=isch but yes, all the other answers do say that there are varieties like this. –  Jefromi Nov 10 '13 at 3:30
