Pomegranate ‘Wonderful’

Grow Your Own Fresh Fruit!

‘Wonderful’ is an excellent source of vitamin C, antioxidants, and fiber.  This sweet and tangy fruit is comprised of large compartments filled with soft seeds, delicious for juicing or eating fresh.  Pomegranates are often used in Spanish and Middle Eastern dishes.  With its gorgeous orange-red blossoms in the spring and golden yellow foliage in the fall, ‘Wonderful’ offers seasonal interest, as well.  This pomegranate is a beautiful addition to the landscape with its colorful fruit and waxy flowers.    ‘Wonderful’ is drought resistant, adaptable, and attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.  This pomegranate also grows well in containers, making it the perfect addition to your patio garden!

After frost has passed, plant your pomegranate in a location with full sun, protection from the wind, and well-drained soil.  If your pomegranate is in a container in cooler climates (USDA Zone 7 or lower), be sure to move it into the garage or indoors during the winter months.

Planting Instructions: May be planted in any well-drained soil. 1. Dig a hole the same depth as the root system and two to three times as wide. 2. Set the plant crown (where the top meets the roots) in the hole, just above the original soil surface. 3. Cover with soil to the original soil surface. Water thoroughly.
