Just as its name implies, Sweet Pomegranate is sweeter than some of the more commonly-grown varieties on the market today, and it matches that superior taste with exceptional beauty.
Brilliant orange/red flowers appear in late spring, followed by large, rosy-hued globes of delicious fruit. Sweet Pomegranate’s flesh is a delightful pink, studded with scarlet fruit. Each tiny, soft-seeded morsel exudes a sweet flavor with a slightly acidic edge.
Sweet Pomegranate is packed full of potassium, vitamin C, iron, calcium, fiber and high in antioxidants. It has a history of use in a variety of culinary dishes, as well as a long legacy of health and healing properties.
