Superbly-Sweet Pomegranate Variety
Sweet Pomegranate is a deciduous shrub (or small tree), that bears delicious, healthy fruit. Plant one in a sunny spot near a window where you can witness its lovely display. Sweet Pomegranate is a bit smaller than some other varieties, so you could even place one of these in a container for your patio.
Your Sweet Pomegranate possess’ a remarkable array of features and benefits. You haven’t lived until you’ve tasted a Sweet Pomegranate. 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. Your Sweet Pomegranate fruit will even ripen earlier than other varieties, offering you an amazing harvest already in early September.
Sweet Pomegranate will grow up to 12 feet in height. It’s self-fertile and quite hardy overall. Sweet Pomegranate has fair salt, disease and pest resistance and will even thrive in some shade.
Pomegranate is Latin for “seeded apple”, and although these exceptional fruits resemble apples, their fruit can be far costlier (so growing your own can be quite a savings). Unlike many other fruits you can grow, Sweet Pomegranate packs a lot of flavor into a little package, and has extraordinary health benefits as well. It is certainly a remarkable tree with unique charm--and a must-have for your home this year!
