Pomegranate - Sweet
Pomegranates are ultra-healthy, delicious, in high demand — and expensive. Why not grow your own?
A Sweet Pomegranate tree will give you lovely orange-red flowers in spring and loads of heavenly rich-tart pink fruits in early fall, all without taking up much space at all.
The ‘Sweet’ pomegranate is a rounded, arching deciduous shrub or small tree and is self-fruitful, long-lived and very productive.
Pomegranates should be planted in the sunniest, warmest part of the yard or orchard for the best fruit. It does best in well-drained ordinary soil, but also thrives in calcareous or acidic loam, gravelly soil or even a large pot.
Use the luscious fruit to make juice, grenadine syrup, ice cream, yogurt or mix with cherries for amazing preserves.
Pomegranate juice has more than double the antioxidants of grape juice and green tea and is said to reduce atherosclerosis.
This is an eye-catching ornamental that will contribute to your good health!
