Description

Punica granatum 'Wonderful'

Punica granatum 'Wonderful'

The Wonderful Pomegranate is quite well known and for many years was the only pomegranate offered to the home gardener. Extremely large almost grapefruit sized fruit make it a first choice for commercial growers as well. It has bright red skin and deep red juicy arils that have soft edible seeds. A deep red skin and tangy flavor have made it a first choice for juicing and fresh eating. It can also be used ornamentally as its flowers are almost as bold as the fruit! Ripens in the fall just in time for the holiday season. The tree loves a hot climate and is drought tolerant once established. Wonderful pomegranate gets quite large, up to 18 feet tall and 12-to-15-foot spread; for this reason, it should be planted where it gets plenty of room or pruned aggressively to control size. Pomegranates are a great source of antioxidants.
