Desertnyi Pomegranate

Punica granatum

Another choice variety from Dr. Gregory Levin. A soft seeded variety from the Turkmenistan collection. The juice of Desertnyi imparts an orange flavor unique to pomegranates. The terra cotta colored rind contrast with the dark red arils(the seeds and surrounding pulp). Desertnyi translates to english as "dessert". The flavor is a balance of sweetness and acidity.
