For Armenians the pomegranate is one of the most recognizable symbols of the country. In Armenian mythology it symbolizes fertility and good fortune. It was a guardian against the evil eye. At wedding in western Armenia, a bride would throw a pomegranate and it into pieces. Its scattered seeds ensured that the bride would bear children.
In Van, Armenian women who wanted to have a son would eat bread made fro dough mixed with pomegranate seeds. Its importance is attested in historical Armenian manuscripts and stone carvings where it was used as a popular ornament. Until the very day pomegranate is a commonly used theme in Armenian art and culture including cuisine. During wedding in Yerevan a small dried pomegranate called taratosik is given by a bride to unmarried guest as a blessing.
