This is an excellent choice for a courtyard specimen. Grow in fruit orchard or kitchen gardens. Good fruit producer in very hot gardens with difficult soils.

Foliage Color Dark Green
Companion Plants Lavender (Lavandula); Sweet Bay (Laurus); Rosemary (Rosmarinus); Olive (Olea); Meyer Lemon (Citrus)
CARE
Care Provide average, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during the first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. When established, reduce frequency after fruit ripens, and increase during bloom period; tolerates moderate drought. Fertilize before new growth appears in spring. Prune annually, to shape.
HISTORY
Lore The single genus of the family Punciaceae was classified by Linnaeus who Latinized the ancient name, Malum puncium, which translates to "apple of Carthage" which was its early common name. Pomegranate fruit came to symbolize fertility due to its abundance of seeds. A culinary staple in Spanish and Middle Eastern cuisine, the pomegranate has emerged as a popular source of Vitamins C and B5, potassium and antioxidant polyphenols.
