I produce many offspring, although all are hidden from view.

Unless we wrestle, you tug, I break, and then you will see a few.

At first sight they seem strangely clear, although very deep red.

In Turkey I've seen people throw my friends to the ground,

Although I understand, it is always meant as good-will.

But also, I have a dark side

That some people do know

With one of my stones you will never leave.

No matter how hard you believe.

What am I?

Is the answer a

Pomegranate?

because

It seems to fit the "You'll Never Leave Part..." like in the Persephone myth.

Wait this puzzle is kind of weird though

EDIT #1:

I produce many offspring, although all are hidden from view.

Offspring are the pomegranate seeds. There are a lot of them.

Unless we wrestle, you tug, I break, and then you will see a few.

Uh...when you rip off the fruit from the tree?

EDIT #2: At first sight they seem strangely clear, although very deep red.

I don't know why they seem clear...they are supposed to be very red.

In Turkey I've seen people throw my friends to the ground, // Although I understand, it is always meant as good-will.

Finally got this one yay :D

When Turkish people want to make a New Year wish, they smash a pomegranate on the floor of their front door exactly at midnight for good luck for the year. Thanks @Lafexlos for this part :D
