    Descriptif de la plante

    Le mot de Rayon de Serre

    Everyone knows the Punica granatum, if only for its delicious fruit, the pomegranate, which has lent its name to both a city in Spain and a famous syrup, grenadine.

    But be careful, you'll have to be very considerate of our Pomegranate tree if you want to admire its superb bright red blossoms or taste its equally red fruit, because it considers itself a holy plant! Indeed, it is mentioned in the Old Testament, and some even wonder whether the tree of Paradise, instead of an apple tree, might not be a Pomegranate...
    As for its fruit, it would be nothing less than a source of eternal youth, fertility, beauty and love... But if you know how to handle it, with tact and respect, then it will gladly offer you its succulent seeds, one for each day that God creates, for its pomegranates would contain 365 of them!

    This Punica granatum 'Eversweet' cultivar is seedless and very sweet.

    So don't hesitate, plant a cutting from the botanical garden Orchard of Flavours l!!

    Miguel tells us more

    - A very early cultivar of Punica granatum from Lebanon. In Mediterranean areas with long, hot summers, it can produce two to three harvests a year. Harvesting begins in midsummer and continues until late autumn. The harvesting period is therefore exceptionally long.
    - Fruits are very soft and sweet, even when small and immature (green fruit). Fruits with red skin.
    - - This is a seedless Pomegranate: small, soft seeds.

    Tips from the Orchard of Flavours botanical garden::
    - If you prefer to keep your Punica granatum as a bush, leave it alone ! If you prefer the shrub form, prune the lower branches as it grows.
    - Although the pomegranate adapts to many types of soil, you'll get vigorous growth with an annual application of well-composted manure between November and February.
    - Once well established (after 3 years), pomegranates are fairly drought-resistant. However, if you want an abundant, tasty harvest, the trees need to be watered during the summer. In the middle of a heatwave, our 3-year-old trees receive 6 liters a day.
    - Our garden has 17 cultivars of Punica granatum, which will soon be included in the Rayon de Serre collection. This varietal diversity means a very long harvest season (from July to November in southern Portugal) and a wide range of fruit tastes and colors.
    - The Punica granatum is a frost resistant exotic fruit tree, since it can withstand temperatures down to -12°C. However, long, warm summers are necessary for fruiting.

    Growing tips

    Repotting

    Repotting

    When you receive your plant, repot it in a pot slightly larger than the bucket, which must be well pierced. Avoid pot covers which prevent residual water from draining away and encourage fungal diseases. Choose a fine potting soil, ideally with added perlite or sand to lighten the substrate (do not use garden soil or acidic soil such as heather). Then plan two repottings per year (spring and autumn), gradually increasing the size of the pot and adapting it to the size of the root network (the roots must have room, but not too much as the plant must be able to dry out its substrate between waterings). This avoids having to add fertilizer, which always risks burning the fragile roots of the plants and making the plant wither as soon as the fertilizer is stopped.

    Watering

    Watering

    Moderate watering: watering should be copious (the whole root ball should be wet), but wait until the substrate has dried deeply before watering again (you can stick your finger in the soil: as long as you feel moisture, do not water). Your plant will recover better from a lack of water than from an excess of water. Always water at the base of the plant, and do not mist it, because stagnant water in the armpit of the leaves favors cryptogamic diseases. If your atmosphere is too dry, put bowls of water nearby (above radiators for example), so that evaporation humidifies the air.

    For an indoor planting

    For an indoor planting

    Unless you want to try a bonsai culture (yay!), this plant is not recommended as an indoor plant, but is meant to be planted outdoors (see next section).

    For an outdoor planting

    For an outdoor planting

    If your climate allows it, you will be able to plant your plant in full ground, a full sun is recommended. We advise you however to cultivate it in pot the first year and to make it spend the first winter in the heat, in order to strengthen it well. Plant it between the end of the risk of frost (generally at the beginning of May) and the end of August, in a soil which must be light and draining; do not hesitate to add sand and fine potting soil if necessary. Be careful with the minimum temperatures indicated: they are given for a mature plant, and you have to take into account the wind which accentuates the cold felt, as well as the water retention capacity of your soil, which can rot the roots if it is not sufficiently draining. So take a little safety margin!

    Pruning

    Pruning

    This plant is very easy to prune, which will make it branch out.

    Fertilizer

    Fertilizer

    Our plants are grown naturally, without chemical fertilizers, so we advise you to repot them regularly (twice a year) rather than adding fertilizer.

    In case of pest attack

    In case of pest attack

    If your plants are under attack by aphids or other pests, the best way to control them is by hand. Change their soil, remove as many undesirables as possible by hand and then shower your plants with a strong stream of water to eliminate any eggs that may be present. Spray them (insist on the underside of the leaves) with liquid black soap diluted in water. Repeat the operation several times at a few days interval. Take them outside in good weather, rain, sun and wind will kill most of the aggressors!
