Properties and uses:
First of all, the Pomegranate tree is a beautiful ornamental tree. It will bring a beautiful touch to your garden, with its bushy bearing and its gnarled trunk, and with the magnificent tiny red flowers that bloom in May.
In the warmest regions, the fruits are ripe in August, as the pomegranate needs the summer sun to mature and become sweet and edible.
Whether with its leaves, flowers or fruits, the Pomegranate tree will distinguish itself by its exotic nature and elegance.

Several cultivars exist:
- Pomegranate 'Wonderful': large red fruits to taste or juice, few seeds.
- Pomegranate 'Mollar de Elche': native to Spain, very mild and sweet flavor, few seeds.

Plant now: the shortest way to your plate is through your garden!
