Gainey Sweet Pomegranate – Local Heirloom!
We have Ray Gainey to thank for the introduction of this heirloom variety. Ray has been the caretaker of this family heirloom that has grown on his family farm in Cairo Georgia for generations. If you like sweet pomegranates, try Gainey Sweet. Fruit is red blushed skinned with beautiful light pink arils. Squeezed out, the juice is wonderful over ice, for a natural home made snow cone. Fruit ripens middle to late September. Zones 8B-10. Grow in containers in northern climates.
