Does anyone have a picture of a fruiting Wonderful Pomegrana

ashleybakesApril 2, 2012

I bought what was tagged a "Wonderful" fruiting pomegranate from a nursery, and it is absolutely thriving (for four years now) in my yard, but it has never set any fruit. The flowers are bright red, very thick, ruffly, and carnation-like. I wonder if I have an ornamental variety instead, or if that is what wonderful blooms look like. Googling brings up conflicting photos (some look like mine, some look compltely different)

Whenever I am wondering about the ID of my plants, I use Google images.

I did that already-I tried google images for Wonderful Pomegranate flower, and get many results, however, they look different. Some are a double flower, and some are a less-full flower. I'm wondering if anyone has a double-flowering wonderful that actually produces fruit? There is mention of one that looks similar to mine that also doesn't set fruit-but I wonder what a true, fruiting, wonderful bloom looks like.

LE Cooke includes flower photos for some of its fruit trees, and it looks like Wonderful is one of them

But the ornamentals do fruit as well, just not to the amount, size, and taste of ones grown for fruit.

Google "pomegranate yahoo group" to see a forum dedicated to poms. You can't post yahoo group links here...
