Gentleness, praotes, (prah-ot-ace); Strong’s #4236, even-tempered, tranquil, balanced in spirit. [The person who possesses this quality, pardons injuries, corrects faults, and rules his own spirit well] Has passions under control.
But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, long-suffering, love, perseverance. ... - 2 Timothy 3:10
But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness.

~Pearls of Wisdom
I had someone tell me another attibute of pomegranates and that is that they have many seeds.
Pomegranates are used in the Bible as a symbol of love, partly, I'm sure, because of their sweet, delicious flavor.
Let us rise early and go to the vineyards; Let us see whether the vine has budded And its blossoms have opened, And whether the pomegranates have bloomed. There I will give you my love. (Song of Solomon 7:12)
In the following instruction....
.....I have heard it said that the bells represent the manifestations of the Spirit and the pomegranates the fruit of the Spirit, particularly love - if the priest did not have the "pomegranates" he would be loudly clanging (1 Corinthians 13:2), wouldn't he?You shall make on its hem pomegranates of blue and purple and scarlet material, all around on its hem, and bells of gold between them all around: a golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell and a pomegranate, all around on the hem of the robe. (from Exodus 33)
Another interesting thing could be the root word for pomegranate in the Hebrew - it means to be exalted or lifted up.
