About:

Pomegranates provide something for everybody! They are an extremely hardy and highly ornamental tree that bears delicious tasting fruit with a huge variety of uses. They are incredibly easy to grow and every March to May, after showing their beautiful bright red flowers, produce tennis-ball size fruit that each display a tiny crown at their centre. Pomegranate fruit is fantastic in a myriad of recipes, ranging from salads through to cocktails, with their sweet flavour also making them perfect for desserts.

Growing:

A hardy plant that tolerates hot and dry areas as well as frost, Pomegranates grow to around
5m in height. It does best when planted in full sun and prefers a long, hot summer. The fruit has a fuller, more rounded taste when grown in high temperatures, and they are quite resistant to pests and diseases.
