I recently purchased a whole case of pomegranates, and it's getting hard to stand after doing 10 in a day, so can I safely freeze them whole to preserve the quality of the fruit?

    I wouldn’t - but that’s just a gut feeling. What are you doing with them?

  • I plan to use them like other berries I freeze.

    Soft fruits and vegetables don't withstand freezing very well, unless you plan to somehow cook them afterwards, or incorporate them as part of other dish Nov 8, 2020 at 0:15
  • You could have tried freezing one overnight to check.

You cannot freeze them whole; the large fruit pod will turn into a disgusting mush when you thaw it.

You can, however, freeze the pips quite well, and they are the part you eat anyway.

    I have no idea whether it's healthful or not, but it certainly doesn't taste good.

  • You might wanna consider actually cutting one of these pomegranates open before you go further with this? It sounds like You've never eaten one before.

  • I've eaten several, and have 3 that still weren't cleaned yet which I'll treat as a treat over the next 2 weeks.
