Utah Sweet Pomegranate History

Written by 

Utah Sweet Pomegranate


Floyd Wright from Utah sent cuttings via UPS to us February 17, 2000 and we put in our greenhouse and into the orchard in 2001. We then grew the bushes for a few years to review the fruit. We began production in 2004. The sales are steadily increasing. I believe a better selection than Sweet Pomegranate. The fruit has an attractive gold color.

Utah Sweet had gold skin with pink cheeks, very sweet, good flavor pink arils. The arils (seeds) are noticeable softer than those of Wonderful and non-staining juice. The plant has attractive pink-orange flowers, sets a good crop and does better than others in colder areas.
