Pomegranates ripening in Spring this one has a bit to go yet

Fruit Trees > Temperate Fruit Trees > Pomegranate Tree
The 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 container 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.

Dwarf Pomegranate - Parfianka

$39.00 ($34.95-$39.00 choose a size)

This Pomegranate has it all: naturally dwarfing, beautiful red fruit, small edible seeds, and is consistently rated the most flavorful pomegranate in tasting trials. Great for juicing or fresh eating, producing heavy crops at a young age. Can grow up to 3m, but can easily be kept at 2m with pruning. Early season Pomegranate.

Pomegranate - Rosavaya

$31.95 ($19.90-$79.00 choose a size)

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.

Pomegranate - Azerbaijani

$31.95 ($31.95-$99.00 choose a size)

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 - Ben Hur

$40.95 ($40.95-$79.00 choose a size)

An outstanding new variety of Pomegranate that was developed especially for the home garden. It produces very large fruit to 1.5kg. The fruit is very sweet and juicy. The variety is very adaptable and will grow in regions ranging from temperate to tropical. Unauthorised commercial propagation of this variety is an infringement under the PBR

Pomegranate - Elche

$19.75 ($19.75-$79.00 choose a size)

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.

Pomegranate - Elcite

$24.90

Large yellow skinned variety of Spanish origin, soft seeds. Not as attractive as the Wonderful but has a pleasant sweet flavour. The red juice surrounding the seed is highly prized for its antioxidant properties.

Pomegranate - Iran

$27.00

An Iranian selection of pomegranate that is a favourite with the local community. The fruits are large, with thick, colourful skin and deep red vesicles. They are sweet, juicy and less prone to problems with fruit fly.

Pomegranate - Vietnam seedling

$14.90

Seed imported from a Vietnam cultivar. Fruit large, yellow skin, pinkish flesh very sweet juicy pulp. Not necessarily true to type, but interesting to see how they fruit here.

Pomegranate - Wonderful

$34.95 ($19.75-$54.00 choose a size)

Pomegranates must be pruned for many reasons related to the health, production and general well-being of the plant.

Pomegranate Tree

I planted 3 years ago on west face hill of almost all clay. I forgot about it even during the drought of last summer which killed a lot of native and non-native plants. With a good spring and summer this tough little plant produced Good fruit this year.

Pomegranate Tree

I've got two growing next to a reflective colourbond fence in full afternoon sun. Everything I planted in those spots fried from the heat but the Pomegranates love it. I never spray and get huge crops.

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.

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.
