Customer Comments on Pomegranate - Elcite
Pomegranate - Elcite
Many pomegranates are thornless. This one is emphatically not. Soft side-branches in summer turn to sharp tapering 10 cm thorns in winter while deciduous, then soften again in Spring. Don't plant this variety anywhere where you brush past! | Mark O'connor - Canberra , ACT 29-Nov-2013
