Larkin Pomegranate – Local Heirloom!
An old homestead variety given to us by Dianne Weinstein that’s stood the test of time. The original pomegranate tree was planted in Gulf County near Wewahitchka, FL by her great-grandparents Carrie and Joe Glass. When the tree was in danger of being lost, Dianne’s Dad, Mr. Larkin Bowen (Pete), dug up a shoot and brought it to Marianna Florida. The tree flourished and produced beautiful, red-skinned pomegranate, with white seeds. Larkin pomegranates are very juicy, tangy sweet!! Fruits reliably in humid climates and is very cold hardy. Ripens late August through September. Zones 8B-10. Grow in containers in northern climates.
