Pomegranates: Parfianka and Wonderful

In addition to the pear tree, we are also planting pomegranates. The idea was to plant from either seeds or cuttings. Since that method would take too long to fruit, I decided it wasn’t worth it. So I went with a young tree.

No, not 1 tree – but 2 trees. The Parifanka and Wonderful variety.

In a taste test of over 1000 pomegranates, the Parifanka is a true winner. And the Wonderful pomegranate has a much larger fruit and usually made into juice.

Since they are in containers, I have yet to plant them. And since they are going to become big shrubs, we have to plan accordingly to fit our mini orchard. Hopefully by the end of April it will find a suitable location.

“Facts of note: Pomegranates are not grafted onto any rootstock, so in areas where it gets cold enough to freeze the tops of the plants back sometimes, they still come back and produce the same fruit.” – Peaceful Valley Nursery, CA

Note: Pomegranate trees were purchased from Lowe’s Nursery. Parfianka $15 and Wonderful $23.  All fruit trees sold in California are not taxed. I am noting the prices of these trees for future references.
