Pomegranates decorated the clothing of the high priest and the capitals of the Temple columns. Exodus 28:33; 1 Kings 7:18.
The pomegranate tree was cultivated extensively during biblical times, and places such as Rimmôn and Gath-Rimmôn undoubtedly owe their name to the abundance of these trees (Hebrew: rimmôn) in their region. - Joshua 15:32; 19:45
