The single genus of the family Punciaceae was classified by Linnaeus who Latinized the ancient name, Malum puncium, which translates to "apple of Carthage" which was its early common name. Pomegranate fruit came to symbolize fertility due to its abundance of seeds. A culinary staple in Spanish and Middle Eastern cuisine, the pomegranate has emerged as a popular source of Vitamins C and B5, potassium and antioxidant polyphenols.
Pomegranate is exceptional for Mediterranean style gardens, low-water and even xeriscape settings, though the fruit is of highest quality with supplemental water during flowering and fruiting season. This is an excellent choice for a courtyard specimen. Grow in fruit orchard or kitchen gardens. Good fruit producer in very hot gardens with difficult soils.
