The number of seeds in a single fruit of Pomegranate is not fixed. It varies depending upon the size and variety of fruit.

The amount of seeds depends on the size of the fruit. Small size contain as low as 200 and as big as 700 seeds in it. Some bigger size fruit contains around 500 -1000 seeds.

The size decides the amount of seeds that it contains. So each fruit will have the different seeds in it. Some of the artificially breed flavor of the fruit has bigger size with seed contains less in number.
