Unopened pomegranates can last up to one month on the counter or two months in the refrigerator. Fresh arils can last two weeks in a sealed plastic container in the refrigerator and frozen arils can last for many months in the freezer.
To freeze pomegranate arils, spread them in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Place in a freezer for two hours or until frozen. Transfer frozen arils to a resealable plastic bag or container. Frozen arils can be enjoyed well after the season has ended. (Photo by Krista Simmons)
