רימון וונדרפול
שם מדעי Punica granatum
הרימון הוא עץ תרבותי נשיר ממשפחת הרימוניים, שמוצאו באזור הים הכספי באיראן של ימינו, משם הופץ לכל ארצות אגן הים התיכון. הפרי מכיל מאות גרעינים עסיסיים, ולו סגולות רפואיות רבות. הרימון נמנה עם שבעת המינים, ומסמל בתרבויות שונות שפע ופריון, יופי וחוכמה. נפוץ השימוש בצורתו לעיטור מבנים, ומטבעות. בחורף משיר הרימון את עליו ובאביב שב ומלבלב. בחודשים מאי-יוני פורח הרימון. פרחיו האדומים וצורתם כגביע מתוכו מתפתח פרי הרימון, שמבשיל בין ספטמבר לדצמבר.
הפרי משמש כאחת הברכות בסעודת ראש השנה העברי.
הרימון בוית כנראה באלף השלישי לפנה"ס באזור ההרים שמדרום לים הכספי, המקום היחיד שבו הוא עדיין גדל בר. משם הובא לאזור החוף המזרחי של הים התיכון לפני כ-5,0000 שנה, לרימון זנים שונים שפותחו במהלך השנים. הזן הזה נקרא ראש פרד, ופירותיו וורדים ומתוקים.

The text on the sign is almost identical to the one in another pomegranate variety (Mule head), not only that, the last line that refers to the particular variety of pomegranate, also refers to the variety of Mule head, and not the current variety Click for sign's details

Pomegranate (Wonderful)
Scientific name Punica granatum
The pomegranate is a deciduous cultural tree from the Punicaceae family, found in the Caspian Sea region of modern-day Iran, from where it was distributed to all Mediterranean countries. The fruit contains hundreds of juicy seeds, albeit many medicinal properties. The pomegranate is one of the "seven species" *, and symbolizes in different cultures abundance and fertility, beauty and wisdom. It is commonly used in its form to decorate buildings, and coins. In winter the pomegranate leaves fall off and in spring the pomegranate blooms again. In May-June the pomegranate blooms. Its red flowers and the shape of a cup from which the pomegranate fruit develops, which ripens between September and December.
The fruit is used as one of the blessings at the Hebrew Rosh Hashanah meal.
The pomegranate was probably domesticated in the third millennium BC in the mountainous region south of the Caspian Sea, the only place where it still grows wild. From there it was brought to the east coast of the Mediterranean about 5,0000 years ago. Pomegranate has different varieties that have been developed over the years. This variety is called mule head, and its fruits are pink and sweet.

* "Seven species" - 7 types of plants mentioned in the Book of Deuteronomy, and which describe the agricultural abundance of the Land of Israel
