POMEGRANATE TREE Punica granatum

PomegranateThe Pomegranate tree is an ornamental shrub producing fruit with a hard, leathery deep red or yellow rind. When opened the fruit exposes shimmering translucent kernels. The juicy flesh is tart-sweet and surrounds nutlike seeds that are edible and add a bit of a crunch to the overall texture.   Pomegranates store extremely well in a cool dry place and continue to sweeten off the tree. The plant itself is very hardy and highly ornamental, it has large showy flowers and is suitable for use as a feature plant, for hedges and Pomegranite Elcitecontainer growing, it also makes an attractive and interesting bonsai specimen.
A shrub or small tree to about 4 m, the pomegranate is multi stemmed, spiny and extremely long lived. Plants are usually pruned to form a short but well defined trunk allowing 4 or 5 shoots to develop into a multi branched form.  Pomegranate is not fussy about soil condition, in its native environment in Northern India and Iran it is found growing in rocky gravel.

Pomegranate fruit

Pomegranate - Azerbaijani

The flavour of the arils of this variety is something else. Gulosha azerbaijani produces medium to large sized, slightly elongated fruit with a pinkish hue, but the internal arils surrounding the seed are deep red, large and very juicy.

Pomegranate Elche

Pomegranate - Elche

One of the most highly valued pomegranates in the world, thanks to its extraordinary flavour and high antioxidant, vitamin and mineral content. Elche comes from the Spanish city of the same name. Elche Pomegranates have to be picked at just the right time: Not too early because, once picked, pomegranates halt the ripening process immediately, and also not too late because they are then at risk of bursting.

Rosevaya just about ready to pick

Pomegranate - Rosavaya

A winner on flavour, even if not the most elegant fruit. Galusha Rosavaya fruit tends to be slightly elongated, pink and angular - but the arils are large and the flavour is exceptional.

Pomegranante

Slow to get established in heavy soils. Responds well to pruning and regular high nitrogen feedings after flowering and fruiting are finished. Hand pollination of flowers helps cropping. Keep moist and in grow in full sun. | David White - Newcastle, NSW 04-Feb-2006

Pomegranate - Galusha Rosavaya

Beautiful looking (pink blush) and tasting, very sweet even the pale coloured seeds. A couple of fruit got fruit fly in 2007. Better in every way than Wonderful, which has yellow not red, fruit in this climate, and deep red, but quite tart seeds. | Steve Walkden-brown - Armidale, NSW 10-Jun-2007

Goulosha Azerbeijani is in my opinion the best variety I have come across. Big, very dark red fruit, dark red arils,very juicy and sweet. | Barbara Jakuszewski - West Swan, WA 28-Dec-2007
