The vibrant, tasty Fruiting Pomegranate collection contains one of each plant in an 8cm pot.
Punica granatum 'Acco' - Red Fleshed Pomegranate (10-15cm tall)
From the Pomegranate variety of Israeli origin. The ‘Acco’ produces round fruits of a medium-large caliber, very colourful both externally and internally. The fruit ripens early which means around September time in the UK. The grains are of a pleasant ruby red and have a sweet flavour. The numerous red flowers are of a semi-compact habit, their ultimate height being 1.5-2m, however the shrub can be trimmed heavily. Any established plants will flower freely on any good soil. It prefers a hot position, for example against a south facing wall but will flower in a good protected sunny position. This plant is easy to grow and is well suitable for the patio too. The fruits ripen better if planted against a south facing wall or if kept in a conservatory from mid-August until harvest (except the South coast of England). It overwinters well outdoors, being hardy to -15C.
Punica granatum parfianka - Parfianka Pomegranate (30-40cm tall)
The Punica granatum parfianka has angular branches and ornamental, glossy leaves. The fruits produced have a sweet taste with a hint of acidity. From Spring to Summer, showy, red trumpet-shaped flowers bloom. It has a very good cold tolerance.
Punica granatum 'Black Dwarf' - Black Dwarf Pomegranate (10-12cm tall)
Punica granatum 'Black Dwarf' is another rare, ornamental pomegranate cultivar but with darker, sometimes purple leaves (good Autumn coloration) and red flowers. The flowers are followed by dark, violet coloured (almost black from a distance) fruits which are edible just like the red form. Any established plant will flower freely on any good soil. It prefers a hot position, for example against a south facing wall but will flower in a good protected sunny position. However, it does not require as much heat as the other fruiting varieties as very few fruits will develop from the flowers on this variety. There will be some differences among seedlings, but all the good, darker leaved ones are selected. Therefore, the fruits will most probably be of the darker colour too.
