Pomegranate (Punica granatum), with its deep red rind and ruby-colored flesh, is known as anar in India and granado in Spain. It grows wild in India, Italy, North Africa and China. The rind of the fruit is used for the deepest yellow color, although the tree bark contains more tannin. The rinds are a waste product of the pulverized seeds which are used as a spice in India.
Pomegranate is an aromatic dye that yields an especially nice green-yellow color. The age of the fruit affects the color of the dye: the less ripe the fruit, the greener the yellow. Pomegranate extract has a high tannin content which when combined with iron gives a yummy deep moss green.
