Desertnyi Is a special selection from the Turkmenistan collection of world famous Pomegranate hybridist Gregory Levin. Desertnyi translates to English as "dessert" and it is a real dessert treat. The flavor is an excellent sweet/tart balance with lots of citrus overtone. As Desertnyi matures, an almost orange-juice-like flavor is evident. It has a great, firm texture with very soft edible seed. 100-200 hours Self fruitful.



Fruit color for this variety is deep garnet-red. Medium sized seeds, juice is balanced with just the right amount of tart to sweet.





A super sweet pomegranate. Shiny pink fruits, juicy pulp and relatively soft-seeded.
