Was health providing pomegranate the fruit in Paradise lost?

Many believe that the Garden of Eden was lost because Adam and Eve ate an apple against the wishes of God. But it could very well have been a pomegranate that was the fruit of temptation. These fruits are red/reddish and about the size of an apple (at least many of the hundreds of verities). Along with olives, dates, figs and grapes, pomegranate was among the first agricultural produces of man. Undoubtedly, it is an ancient fruit.
