The pomegranate is one of the oldest fruits as well as richest in history and folklore. Its juice is tangy, sweet and refreshing and as the beneficial properties of the pomegranate are becoming more known, their demand enjoys a constant rise.

Pomegranate is a warm-weather crop suited to tropical or sub-temperate regions of the world such as Cyprus. Although the plant is hardier than oranges or any other citrus crops, it is not tolerant of temperatures below 20 degrees F.

Pomegranates do have a seasonal growth pattern and a dormant period during a mild winter. In full blossom their colour is orangey-red and it is a reminder that summer is on its way!
