Proven Winners ‘Peppy Le Pom’ Pomegranate
Appreciated and cultivated since ancient times, pomegranates are a true link to the past. Peppy Le Pom pomegranate is a new take on the classic, with a cute little dwarf habit that not only greatly expands how it can be used in the garden – it also expands where it can be grown, as its petite size is perfect for growing in a pot in colder climates. Just bring it indoors when the temperatures dip to continue to enjoy the show. Peppy Le Pom spends summer covered in the orangest blooms you’ve ever seen, each dangling from the stems like an ornament. These develop into tiny little pomegranate fruits, which, while technically edible, have only a few small, sour seeds inside, so they’re really best appreciated on the plant.
