The Desertnyi pomegranate features an orange rind beautifully contrasted by dark red arils. The mature fruit has a firm texture and flavor that hints of orange juice. The seeds are very soft. 

Desertnyi is a selection from the Turkmenistan collection of world-famous wild Pomegranates. It was thankfully rescued during the fall of the Soviet Union by the persistence of hybridist Dr. Gregory Levin.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Pomegranate is fairly easy to take care of. If desired, pomegranates can be pruned to a tree shape. Add compost at initial planting, and dress with 1/2 inch of compost annually. Pomegranates will survive drought, but will flourish with regular deep watering.
