  1. The pomegranate, Punica granatum is the only genus of the Punicaceae family and consists of two types: the common pomegranate, which is grown everywhere as a tree or as a shrub and a very small variety with small flowers and fruits, which are only kept for decoration. The elongated, uncut leaves periodically fall off. The fiery red blossoms appear in late spring and fall out in late summer. The fruits are red, the size of an apple.
