Add a dwarf superfood fruit tree to your landscape this season! The Parfianka Pomegranate (Punica granatum 'Parkianka') is native to western Asia but is fast becoming one of the most popular fruits in the U.S. due to its enormous health benefits. It is an eye-catching, long-lived tropical plant that is sure to draw interest from family and neighbors.

Glossy, lance-shaped leaves round out the lush appearance of this tropical ornamental, spotlighting it as a stand-out in any yard. In the spring, Parfianka Pomegranate will enchant you with its delicate, trumpet-shaped red blossoms that will continue into the long summer months, providing welcome allure for butterflies. Parfianka is also a Hummingbird magnet with its showy red flowers.

In the fall, this Pomegranate variety will amaze you with the appearance of orange-sized, red fruits ready for harvest. Unlike Pomegranates you buy in the store, homegrown fruit has high levels of flavor and nutrition! Whether you eat the juicy avils and seeds fresh, sprinkle on salads, or squeeze into juice, the Pomegranate is filled with natural vitamins and antioxidants and further health benefits too numerous to mention.

Planting and Application:

This deciduous tree can be grown as a large shrub and features angular branches with upright growth for a full, robust appearance. Shrub form plants are excellent screening or a backdrop to your mixed border. You'll enjoy privacy and a double-duty edible privacy fence, property definition, or hedgerow!

Or you may choose to trim the lower branches up to develop it into more of a tree-form specimen. Plants trimmed up make an excellent focal point in any garden! Especially once they are dripping in orange-sized red fruit! You can even keep them pruned smaller yet to grow them in containers! This means Nothern gardeners can enjoy one as a porch or patio tree all summer, then bring them into a protected greenhouse or sunroom for the winters!

While self-fertile, all fruiting shrubs and trees do better with a pollinator buddy! Pick another Parifianka, or any other Pomegranate nearby to boost pollination chances and yield. Then kick back and watch those superfruits develop by the armload!

Modern Healthy and Delicious Fruit with Ancient Past

Recorded history first documents the Pomegranate in use in the area known as the lower Tigris and Euphrates Valley around 2200 B.C., although archaeological records date them back much further. Pomegranates most likely came by way of the mountains of Iran and Iraq.

The Pomegranate's wide range of adaptability, great taste, and high food value gave it a place of great appreciation in the ancient diet, and this spread throughout the Middle East. The Spanish brought Pomegranate with them into Mexico, where it found its way North into territory that would become the United States in the 1500s via the Spanish Missions.

Modern improvements in Pomegranate have been ongoing. For many years, Dr. Gregory Levin was the leading researcher over the great Pomegranate collection at the Garrygala Agricultural Station in Turkmenistan.

In the late 1990s, the turmoil along the Iran/Turkmenistan border reached a peak. During this time, Dr Levin was forced to leave the Research Station and brought many of the most important selections to Israel where they would be then sent to the USDA Germplasm Repository at the Wolfskill Experimental Orchards in Winters, California.

Several of Dr. Liven's varieties have been selected as outstanding, and Parfiankia has proven to be a superior selection. Considered by many the most balanced in acid/sugar, sweetness, and overall flavor of all pomegranate varieties, the Parfiankia has dominated fruit tastings for many years.

After years of exile from his work in pomegranate discovery and introduction, Dr. Levin's efforts have been carried on by the likes of Joe Wehrheim and Jeff Moersfelder of UC Davis. Jeff manages the Pomegranate program at Wolfskill and conducts regular fruit tastings and tours. He also distributes the important varieties of the collection, of which Parfiankia remains in the highest demand. This story is not over, due to the number of great selections that remain to be introduced.
