Can't find 'WHITE' Pomegranate tree/seeds in Australia !!! ? You are my last hope&amp;#8207;

    105 responses

ozee starts with ...
Hi

I am looking for seeds or plant of White Pomegranate like the one in the link/pics below. I cant find it anywhere and people havent even heard of it !!!

Well people who have never tasted this are missing out on the fruit that used to be in the frickin hanging gardens of babylon !! and is the sweetest of all pomegranate.

Its the best thing i have ever tasted.

http://www.tytyga.com/product/Babylonian+White+Pomegranate+Tree

I also found this variety called "Fleishman", this looks close enough and is mentioned in many websites.
http://www.papayatreenursery.com/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=527

A seller of white pomengranate in US told me its Punica Grenada Alba but i dont think that sounds right. What would be the cultivar/botanical name for the fleishman variety ?

Thanks and Regards
Ozee JR

You'd most likely have to get cuttings anyway as seeds don't usually grow anything much like the parent plants.

Hey JR - I just checked the import data base for australian quarantine. Pomegranate seed is fine to bring into the country so long as it is cleaned of pulp and isn't over 100g in quantity. You may get some interesting seedlings from the white pomegranate parent if you plant enough of them. Maybe the USA growers will let you buy some seed.
Check the AQIS search engine
www.aqis.gov.au
and type in Punica for the plant search. Good luck.

try
www.aqis.gov.au/icon32/asp/ex_querycontent.asp


and under commodity type in punica
then all countries and end use seeds for sowing option.
You'll have to make sure they are cleaned of pulp before they are shipped.

ozee,in my copy of Cornucopia(a monumental work of immense value)he mentions several paler varieties ,some of which he says are quite tart,which if someone had eaten one might be why some people think you are mistaken about a white pomegranate being sweet BUT he goes on to talk about a particular variety called WHITE which in his words is VERY SWEET and JUICY.He talks of Greenglobe and Fleshman too.Where were you when you tasted these fruits?not Australia I suppose.Anyway we will hunt it down sooner or later.The author of Cornucopia is Stephen Facciola published by Kampong. I got mine from Green Harvest in QLD.

Ozee, yes I have a lead, but I have to ask this person if it is ok to give his name to somebody else.I am sure it will be.He was sending me a pomegranate that he said was so sweet he did not like it himself. It is a pale one.Anyway I was on my way out the door to Melb and we did not quite finish the arrangements but fear not you will get your pomegranate !Cheers Jantina P.S. email me on jantinarohde@activ.net.au and I will email you back when I get home and have cleared it with the bloke involved.

ozee,did you ever get your white pomegranate? It has just come to my notice that the other person who was keen to get one was knocked back by the same man who sold me one and said I could give his details to you.Things went so haywire with our computer and life was so busy at the time, I've gone through all old email stuff I can find but there is nothing from you.If you read this and you still want one I can send/ bring you a cutting of mine.Perhaps we will have more luck if you post your email address for me to email you this time.Sorry to have been slack and not followed this up earlier.

Hi Peter, no it's not a white as such, it's a pale one that he said was so sweet he didn't like it.The plant he sent me is about 2ft tall. If he still won't come to the party you can have a cutting of mine. What's the other pomegranate you were getting like?

Saly, $5000 is rather daunting and then you still have to get them through quarantine ! The bloke who sold it to me does not want his name put on the site ( think he is worried about getting swamped with requests) but said he is happy for me to give contact details to individuals. He did not have THE white pomegranate but a very pale one called Jennings that he said was extremely sweet. Email me jantinarohde@activ8.net.au and I will send you his contact details.

macleaymac, since the tree looks to be getting the chop can you put some cuttings in (not the best time I know). By the postings here it would appear to be a fairly rare tree and it would be a shame to lose it entirely. Have you tasted the fruit from it?

Ok I have taken some fruit.Three ripe ones and full of seeds.I'll plant 50 and see how they go.Also planted 12 cuttings in my shade house. Now it's wait and see time. We can plant anytime of the year. Bottom temps are a very brief 8c.Mostly 15c to 20+ in the dry season.

Hello Jantina,
I myself was looking for white pomegranate tree and surprisingly run into one nursery called TyTy Nursery. They have this particular one and are selling it for $25.00 for about 3 to 4 feet tall. They only thing is that shipping is as much as the tree price. Go check it out. It's quite expensive.

Thanks queenelli, I checked out the site and it was really interesting. Alas they want a minimum order of $5,000 ,then about another $2,000 for shipping and then there is still Oz quarantine to deal with ,so not really an option for me but thanks for trying. Lots of luck getting and growing one yourself.

Hi all pleased to say that of six cuttings I planted, I had a 50% strike. Possibly one more, I'm not sure if it will make it.Seems they strike very easily in our sandy soil.
I will take 50 more and see how we go.There is not too much doubt in my mind that this is a white pomeg. Certainly the fruit looked like those in all the pictures.

Hi all, wanting to buy two pomegranates and am a bit confused about the best tasting pomegranates to buy. We've heard the russian varieties are the best, yet this white pomegranate that is so sweet sounds really interesting. Has anyone tasted the white one. Someone mentioned "Horses Tooth" is sweet and doesn't have many seeds. Has anyone tried it. Confused about it all. If anyone can give their own taste experience, it would be great, and where we can purchase it. The local nursery here in Kilsyth, Melbourne has Elche - don't know much about it.

Tickle it says...
I know no one has posted here for some time but I just stumbled across this site today. I too am looking for a white or golden pomegranate. I had a friend in Ca. who bought one about 15 years ago. He searched hi and low and finally found one in Southern CA. He said that that particular tree was the one they must have been talking about in the Bible as it was as sweet as honey. We havent been in touch for years so I cant ask him anything. I actually need two trees. One for a friends birthday and one for myself. Does anybody have a cutting or a new found site I might be directed to please let me know. Thank you so much!!

You should also try Parr's Nursery in NSW, they have a selection of eight or nine varieties which are very hard to get elsewhere - reasonably priced and good delivery charges

Hi Rev,

I've just ordered some ornamental and fruit trees from Diggers a few weeks ago, they should be arriving soon. I am not sure about the size but a staff from Diggers explained that their trees are one or two years old so they are strong enough to withstand/adapt to the new environment quickly. Having said this, to be on the safe side I might have to get hold of some tree guards just in case they are too small to survive through the Winter months.

Will let you know when I receive my order. Fingers crossed.

Regarding the white pomegranate, not sure if it is the same variety but I see on Diggers they have White Flowering pomegranate which is categorised under tree/shrub/ornamentals.

Hi Cam
yes please do post about what you get

as an aside
if you want white pomegranate then get a friend in the USA to send you seed.

basically take a nice ripe fruit, even post harvest aged, eat the fruit, spit the seeds
wash the remainig pulp
and when dry pack in a new bag labelled
'Punica granatum'
post its with a customs declaration stating seeds on the outside

ive found pomegranates germinate easily from seed
and allegedly breed fairly true
itd be worth a punt

Hi Rev,

Just letting you know that I received half of my order the other day. And you're right the plants are very very small indeed. I am still waiting on my persimmon (Fuyu) plant from them and I really don't know what to expect.

Charles cant spell says...
Well given Quarantine costs and postage costs, my shipment of Diggers plants was as expected. Small but ok. Basically it was $70 instead of $250 so I cant complain. Babaco is looking a bit sick but it was a long ride, Seedling Pecan is way past root bound, I.e. its tap toor came out hte bottem of the pot a year ago and is now a lump.

But on the whole I would say I got fair value, I got Spanish and Chinese Licorice, both small but alive and now I dont have to stress about germinating the seeds and waiting 2 years, Babaco, Japanese Raisin, Yacon, Black Taro, English Gooseberry, Chinese Quince, Pecan at $10-15 a plant including postage. YOu guys might be spoilt over east but that is good value in WA.

Hi Folks,
I happened to see that a few of you mentioned TyTy Nursery (in Tyty, Georgia, USA) as a possibility for obtaining plants or seeds for white pomegranates. I have experience with that nursery, which isn't too far from us here in Orlando (relatively speaking considering the distance from TyTy to Oz). I recommend that you proceed with caution in dealing with TyTy and check out the reviews about this nursery on www.gardenweb.com and www.davesgarden.com (or just google "tyty reviews") before you commit to buying. After not such happy experiences with persimmon and quince trees from TyTy, we decided to order white and haku botan pomegranates from BayFlora ( www.bayflora.com) in the San Francisco area all the way on the other side of our country rather than from TyTy right next door in south Georgia. BayFlora's got a great reputation and 100% satisfactory ratings last time I checked; they're nice, knowledgeable folks as well, and they're much closer to your country than Georgia if you're going to have something shipped from up here. I have no ties to BayFlora other than that I've ordered from them myself and greatly appreciated Maureen's assistance and advice.
Regards,
Tom

Hey charles
you might as well ditch a pecan seedling with a bad taproot
Thats the beauty of Pecans! such a tough tree if it gets a good start. And so long lived that you want it to

If you want quality Pecan seedlinsg then go to the supermarket and hand pick out the most choice whole nuts - you usually find a few colours - some types mottled others a solid chestnut

soak them a couple days in water and then either direct seed to protected sites (cloche), or put in moist coco peat.
when ive done this almost EVERY nut germinated!

Nobody should every have to pay that much for a seedling Pecan!

Thanks for the lead John!
maybe i can convince them to sell me seeds

Charles, don't worry too much about the pecan roots. Several years ago a guy dug up two Crepe myrtles from my garden and gave me two pecans in exchange.

They were so badly root bound I thought they wouldn't survive, but after a savage root pruning and replanting they went on to grow successfully.

I would get nuts from them but the parrots get there first!

Pomegranates are a Mediterranean smallish tree/shrub. They like cold winters (down to -10C) and and prefer hot, dry summers. As a result pomegranates thrive most in full sun. They arent very tall growers usually reaching less than 5 metres and are therefore suited to growing in pots too!

Hi, we followed Rev's instructions to bring in white pomegranate seeds from overseas. Unfortunately Customs did not allow these seeds to enter Australia. They stated that only commercial seeds are allowed to enter Australia. We tried.

Hey
Re: commercial seeds. That's Bs.
For starters it's AQIS that is the relevant authority for seed imports - An important distinction.
You should have received a seizure notice, so within 30 days you can appeal thir decision. There is nothing in the rules that says seed must be commercial. Just over zealous greenhorn newbies, I often have to deal with their uninformed opinion! Give head office a call talk to senior staff - explain the situation- check the seed fits requirements 1. permitted 2. Clean of pulp and free of dirt, insects etc. 3. in new clean packaging 4. Labelled clearly with genus and species. That is your requirements, if it fits that bill then There is no justification to confiscate your property. Persist and you will win. If you run into a recalcitrant officer then appeal to Canberra office. Often you diplomatic persistence will be enough to overturn a decision

Thanks for this info. Unfortunately it is too late for us. They have confiscated the seeds and that was on the 4th November. We followed each step stated in your post, actually it was your post that encouraged me to collect the seed. Now I doubt if we will be back in Italy/Sicily/Malta again to collect the seed. We only hope that another reader will benefit from your words. By the way we did not receive a siezure notice. Thanks Rev

It's bizzare that they weren't allowed into the country as they are on the permitted list of AQIS species. I may have some seed of white pomegranates coming from the US at some stage. If I receive enough to share will be happy to do so.

Hi Phil

You can bring seeds into Australia but they have to be commercially packed seeds. If you ever have them spare we would be grateful. Cross the fingers. Thanks

Hi, I just went to buy a pomegranate to a man who usually sells rare trees, and he offered me a white one, is the you said. He is a very experienced man so I believe him, he brought the cuttings from middle easter some time ago. He said the plant and flower is exactly the same except the pulp is not red and it's sweeter.

I know what you are talking about, they are extremely sweet and I have been looking for them for ages. My dad went to India and when he return from his business trip to Bangladesh, he brought bag full of those pomegranate that had white seeds like small crystal clear glass balls. I only had opportunity to have them once in my life and still longing.My dad told me that they were very rare and they are grown mostly in north part of India and some parts of Pakistan.
