Description

The Hardiest Pomegranate Yet | Late Fall Harvest

One of the hardiest, most impressive, and simply delicious ornamental edibles, Punica Favorite™ Pomegranate is a very compact shrub that sets brilliant blooms and delectable fruit for a late fall harvest. Needing very little attention, Punica Favorite™ Pomegranate earns its name with each new season.

The small, very sweet fruit begins setting just a season or two after you plant this shrub—no more waiting season after season for those first fruits. Punica Favorite™ Pomegranate is light red and utterly delicious.

Just as terrific as the fruit are the blooms on this compact shrub. They begin in early summer, a vivid shade of orangy-red, and continue all season. Even if you never harvested a fruit from Punica Favorite™ Pomegranate, it would be worthy of a place in your garden for the ornamental value of its blooms.

Punica Favorite™ Pomegranate thrives under just about any conditions, from windy, moist coastal settings to the still, dry, hot desert. Site it in a sheltered southern or eastern location (a walled patio is ideal). Fruit will set in all locations, but will only ripen and become edible in warm climates. Expect Punica Favorite™ Pomegranate to reach just 4 to 6 feet high and wide after 10 years' growth. Needs well-drained soil.

This is a non-GMO item and is grown with sustainable and ecologically sound growing practices.

Pomegranate bushes

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I love these things. I bought two over 5 years ago and they are big favorites. My bushes are closer to 10 feet tall. When the fruit starts growing you will have to get to them before all the squirrels and birds that come in, but there are usually enough for everyone. We even transplanted one of the bushes 2 years ago and while it took it @6months to recover, its back to the same height as the other.
