The Pomegranate (Punica granatum) is an ancient fruit, native to Iran and widely grown throughout the Middle East and Mediterranean countries. Whilst they are mostly associated with warmer climates, some varieties of pomegranate are hardy down to -20, so they can be grown successfully in the UK. However, they require a long, hot summer for the fruits to ripen, so have a much greater chance of fruiting if grown in a greenhouse or poly tunnel. Pomegranates should be planted in a sunny, sheltered spot in well drained neutral/alkaline soil. Alternatively they can be grown in containers. Pomegranates are supplied in pots and unless otherwise stated in the product description are available for despatch throughout the year.

The exact origins are unclear but it was developed in the early 1920's by Rudolph Boysen a horticulturist from California. The short shelf life of the berries led to a decline in commercial production but it is still widely grown in New Zealand and remains popular with fruit enthusiasts in the UK. It produces heavy crops of purplish-black berries that taste like wild blackberries, only sweeter. The plants are strong and vigorous in their growing habit, hardy and drought resistant.
