Pomegranate
Pomegranate

  • Price: $15.00

Pomegranates are drought-tolerant, and can be grown in dry areas. In wet areas, they can be prone to root decay from fungal diseases. They are tolerant of moderate frost, down to about ?10°C. The edible fruit is a berry 5-12 cm in diameter with a rounded hexagonal shape, and has thick reddish skin. Each seed has a surrounding water-laden pulp the edible aril ranging in color from white to deep red or purple. The seeds are embedded in a white, spongy, astringent pulp.

Comments Warnings : The pomegranate has been mentioned in many ancient texts, notably the Book of Exodus, the Homeric Hymns and the Quran. It is grown as much for its ornamental appeal as for its fruit.
