Punica 'Eight Ball' is a 1997 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction. It is the tallest of two dwarf pomegranate seedlings we selected in 1986 from a batch that survived our -9 degrees F winter of 1983/1984, with minimal damage. Punica 'Eight Ball' was selected for its large 2.5" diameter fruit, hardiness, and nearly black fruit (resembling an eight ball). Our oldest specimen is now 8' tall. Punica 'Eight Ball' is great for the edible garden as long as you are one of those folks who think pomegranates taste good! Deer, however, don't think much of pomegranates, so that's a good thing.
