The Mollar de Elche Pomegranate – botanical name, Punica granatum cultivar “MOLLAR DE ELCHE” – produces large sized fruit blushed with pinkish red skin, and dark pink arils with small soft seeds. Very juicy and low in acid, which makes it very sweet.
The fruit ripens from from April (depending on weather conditions).
Pomegranates do very well in Mediterranean type environments. They are sensitive to wind. Tolerant of moderate frost only. Older, well-established plants will tolerate heavy frost for short periods of time. They have shallow, spreading roots making for great small garden trees.
