Lift off the cap. The entire top part of the fruit will come undone. Be gentle.

Follow the lines. Cut from top to the centre at the bottom. Don't cut through..just enough to perforate the skin and not burst the fruit.

Gently start opening the segments. Pull apart without squeezing. The fruit should now open very easily.

The pomegranate will look like a beautiful red star….Then remove the yellow skin.
