POMEGRANATES   

   ANGEL RED

Considered a gourmet pomegranate, Angel Red has a beautiful ruby color inside and out. Its soft seeds make it palatable to eat and allows for yields of larger quantities of juice for drinking fresh, cooking, jellies and wine. The shrub bears heavily and the fruit ripen earlier than most others – early September. Zones 8-10.

1 Yr. Shrub      $25.00  SOLD OUT

 


GRENADA

Deep red blooms yield large dark red fruit in late summer- early fall. Ruby red flesh is less tart than most and is wonderful for fresh eating, juice, jelly and wine. The shrub is a regular bearer, tolerant of many soils, and hardy to 5° F. Zones 8-10.

1 Yr. Shrub      $25.00  SOLD OUT

 


"Let us go early to the vineyards to see if the vines have budded, if their blossoms have opened, and if the pomegranates are in bloom— there I will give you my love."

Song of Solomon 7:12 (NIV)

 


Planting Information

 

The pomegranate fruit has been enjoyed for many centuries by the Chinese, Indians, Persians, Greeks, Mediterranean Europeans and Egyptians, making warriors invincible and offering a long and healthy life.  High in disease-fighting antioxidants, Vitamin C, potassium and niacin, pomegranate juice has been used to treat inflammation, sore throats, and rheumatism.  The seeds with the juicy translucent scarlet red pulp are edible parts of the fruit. The flavor is delicate, sweet, and tangy.

 

These hardy plants can grow into a 15-20 ft tree if allowed, but most owners keep their plants down to a 6-8 ft bushy shrub for easier access. Their high drought tolerance allows for less water needed once established, though water at least weekly for better fruit production. All varieties are self-pollinating. Plant in full sun. Zones 8-10.
