Desertnyi Pomegranate 


A special selection from the Turkmenistan collection of world famous Pomegranate hybridist Gregory Levin. Desertnyi translates to English as “dessert” and it is a real dessert treat. With a light orange-colored rind and dark red arils (the seeds and surrounding pulp) this contrasted look is like very few other varieties. The flavor is an excellent sweet/tart balance with lots of citrus overtone. As Desertnyi matures, an almost orange juice-like flavor is evident. It has a great, firm texture with very soft edible seed. Upright growing plant with great fruit set. Maintain at any height with summer pruning. Good for fresh eating or Juice. Self-fruitful.
