Rimon - רִמּוֹן

Pronunciation: Ri·mon

Literal translation: Pomegranate



The rimon is in season now here in Israel, which is perfect because it is one of the Rosh HaShana symbolic foods that is traditionally eaten during the holiday.

Yet, you might want to be careful while using the word in a sentence, because in Hebrew, rimon also means grenade. You don't want to ask for a grenade in the Shuk, you might just get one.
