‘Desertnyi’ is part of an exclusive Turkmanistan collection from renowned pomegranate hybridizer Gregory Levin. The outer skin is an unusual orange coloration with deep-red arils. Translated, Desertnyi means dessert and true to its name, it is a dessert treat with a distinctive balance of sweet-tart flavors and citrus overtones. For a non-staining, very sweet juice, try ‘Eversweet’ a red-skinned pomegranate that grows 8-10 feet. Grow pomegranate plants successfully in USDA Zones 7-10.
