Description: The pomegranate tree is a shrub or small tree. It belongs to the Punicaceae family. Slow-growing, it can have several trunks, which twist over the years and the bark peels off in flakes. The leaves are deciduous, with bright green leaves that turn golden yellow in autumn and with a full margin. It bears single, deep red flowers that produce pomegranates, fruits whose rind contains numerous compartments that contain the seeds, wrapped in a sweet and juicy coating.
