Discover a fruit from the old world.
The variety of pomegranate we produce is the Wonderful, prized for its all-round qualities of high sugar content balanced with acidity; this is a very robust tree with a steady, high yield. The fruit is medium large, round in shape with a fully open and balanced calyx.
SIt is distinguishable from other varieties by its deep red colour, both inside and outside. The arils (grains) inside have a pleasant, bittersweet taste and the seeds themselves are not overly woody, which makes them ideal for juice and other derivatives, as well as for eating fresh.
Another distinguishing feature of this variety is its thick skin which enables it to be stored more easily and for longer periods. This not only increases its shelf life but also allows a more constant and regulated output to the market.
The thick skin also increases its resistance to impact and attacks from harmful pests. The Wonderful pomegranate has an extensive market for both home consumption and for use in industrial processing. The fruit matures in the first ten days of October and like all pomegranates the Wonderful performs best in the Mediterranean area, in full sunlight and in deep, loose soil. Activities within the Kore consortium have also demonstrated that it adapts well to many other types of soil, even poor and heavy soils.
The pomegranate: flavoursome and healthy, with a thousand qualities.
