Pomegranate, the tree born of the drops of a god’s blood

According to Greek mythology, the first pomegranate was born from the drops of Dionysus’ blood, the god of wine. It is said that the god, who was still a child, was kidnapped by the Titans at the behest of the goddess Hera, who sought revenge for the continued infidelity of her husband, Zeus.
Dionysus was boiled in a cauldron and the first pomegranate tree was born from his blood strewn on the earth.
