The pomegranate is the symbol of Armenia and represents fertility, abundance and marriage. One ancient custom widely accepted in ancient Armenia was performed at weddings. A bride was given a pomegranate fruit, which she threw against a wall, breaking it into pieces. Scattered pomegranate seeds ensured the bride future children. In Artsakh it was accepted to put fruits next to the bridal couple during the first night of marriage. The pomegranate was among those fruits, and was said to also ensure happiness. It is believed the couple enjoyed a pomegranate wine as well.The symbol of the pomegranate is connected with insemination. It protected a woman from infertility and protected a man's virile strength. Currently, pomegranate juice is popular with Armenians in food and heritage.

Iran and ancient Persia

Pomegranate was the symbol of fertility in ancient Persian culture.[citation needed] In Persian mythologyIsfandiyar eats a pomegranate and becomes invincible. In the Greco-Persian WarsHerodotus mentions golden pomegranates adorning the spears of warriors in thephalanx. Even in today's Iran, pomegranate may imply love and fertility.

Introduced to China during the Tang Dynasty (618-907 CE), the pomegranate (Chinese石榴pinyinshíliu) in olden times was considered an emblem of fertility and numerous progeny. This symbolism is a pun on the Chinese character 子 () which, as well as meaning seed also means offspring thus a fruit containing so many seeds is a sign of fecundity. Pictures of the ripe fruit with the seeds bursting forth were often hung in homes to bestow fertility and bless the dwelling with numerous offspring, an important facet of traditional Chinese culture.
