Be Prepared to Eat Some Pomegranate.

Ask the Expert: Identify blooming bush please?

This bush was planted by the home builder about 4 years ago, this year it was covered in these white/red flowers. Can you tell me what it is?

Thanks Michelle

  1. Michelle,

    I believe the shrub you have is a pomegranate (punica granatum). The fruit will mature about 5 to7 months after the flowering. It takes about 3 years for a pomegranate to mature and begin making fruit.

    If you have eaten a pomegranate before I highly recommend it. It has anti-oxidant qualities, but more than that they taste good. My first experiences with pomegranates were as a child living in Las Vegas. Our neighbor had a pomegranate. When the branches hung out over the fence we would pick the fruit and eat it. Everything inside his yard was his and everything outside of his yard was fair game for all the neighborhood children.

  2. Kekucia,

    I stand corrected. After looking at the pictures, it does look like a Feijoa. I found these pictures of pomegranates. The depending on the varieties some of the leaves of both plants can look similar.
