Angel Red® Pomegranate

Punica granatum 'Smith' PP #16,578

SKU

Simply the best pomegranate on the market! Large, showy, bright, orange-red blooms on upright, fount-like branches produce large, vivid red fruit that ripens late summer to fall. Less pulp and higher juice content than others, with seeds soft enough to be eaten fresh. Deciduous.
