Forum Thread: How to Open a Pomegranate - the Easiest Way to Deseed Faster & Eat a Pomegranate

There are lots of different ways of cutting open a pomegranate, from cutting vertically, cutting horizontally, to even submerging in water. This wikiHow will show you a few of these ways so that you can get to the tasty seeds inside. Not all of these methods may work for you, so pick one that suits you the best!

Points to remember

Roll the fruit first to loosen the seeds.
Score around the middle and tear it open into halves.

Hold each half over a bowl, seeds facing down and tap the skin with a wooden spoon, squeezing a little to release the seeds.

Alternatively, score 4 lines from top to bottom to quarter the pomegranate.
Submerge the pomegranate in a bowl of water and and pull apart the quarters, releasing the seeds with your hands.
The pith will float and the seeds will sink. Remove the pith and discard, then drain the seeds.
