We’ve combined our Wonderful
pomegranates with our boysenberries to make this incredible jelly. It’s a tangy
pomegranate flavor mixed with sweet faintly tart boysenberries. Not only delicious on toast, yogurt and
cheese cake but scrumptious as a filling in baked goods.
Pomegranates may be the oldest propagated fruit dating back to ancient times. It is native to the area from Iran to northern India and was introduced into California in 1769 by Spanish settlers. Pomegranates grow in a semi-arid mild Mediterranean climate, so Lake Mathews is a perfect location to grow them. In fact fruiting is impaired in a humid environment.
We grow the
Wonderful variety which is known for its large red, juicy, sweet and tangy
fruit. Pomegranates are known for their health
benefits and are packed with antioxidants.
Our Wonderful pomegranates are one of the first trees to bud out in
early spring and one of the last to harvest in October. Wonderful pomegranates growing in our orchard.
