PLANT

The Aryan Pomegranate (Punica Granatum) is a plant of the Punicaceae family, of Asian origin, and present since antiquity in the Caucasus, and throughout the Mediterranean region. Currently, pomegranate cultivation is widespread in Mexico, the USA, Arizona and California. In Italy, it is also and above all cultivated for ornamental purposes.

FRUIT

The fruit, commonly called pomegranate and scientifically balausta, is an almost unique berry that has developed together with the floral calyx. The presence of the calyx can also be seen in the ripe fruit: in fact, in a position opposite the petiole there is a sort of raised crown, a sign of the remnants of the calyx.
The leathery exocarp, rather solid and massive, conceals a large number of seeds, estimated at around 600. The translucent, shiny seeds are covered by a juicy pulp whose colour can vary from white to blood red; in botany, pomegranate seeds are called arils. It should be remembered that the smell, taste, shape and colour of the pomegranate fruit are strongly species-dependent.
The Ariana variety is medium to large-fruited with a deep red colour.
The seeds/arils are dark red in colour and very soft.

PROPERTIES

Astringent properties: The bark, flowers and exocarp of the pomegranate contain a large amount of tannins (estimated at around 28%, including gallic and ellagic acid), the properties of which are useful in cases of vaginal and intestinal bleeding;
Antidiarrhoeal properties: the powder obtained from the dried rinds of pomegranates is rich in tannins and, used as a decoction, is suitable for combating diarrhoea;
Vermifuge and anthelmintic properties: in pomegranate bark, pellettier (alkaloid molecule) has been observed to act with a paralysing effect, specifically against tapeworms;
Ability to preserve lipid oxidation: oil from pomegranate seeds and juice have good antioxidant properties;
Gastro-protective properties: medicinal virtue only demonstrated in the animal model; pomegranate extract appears to exert these properties particularly against ethanol damage.
Gum-refreshing properties: the infusion prepared from pomegranate flower petals is very useful for refreshing the oral cavity, gums in particular;
Diuretic properties: the seeds boast diuretic virtues, albeit very mild;
Aromatic properties: rendered from the peel of pomegranates. The aroma and intense fragrance emanating from the fruit peel are exploited for the preparation of excellent liqueurs and aperitifs;
Antioxidant properties: due to the presence of numerous polyphenols and vitamin C;
Potential antithrombotic, anti-allergic, vaso-protective and gastro-protective properties, virtues hypothetically rendered by flavonoids.

POSITION

The pomegranate is a plant that is resistant to the arid summer and winter temperatures typical of the Mediterranean; in such conditions it is extraordinarily resistant to all kinds of diseases. In an unsuitable, excessively humid or rainy environment, it is prone to root rot in summer. In a well-drained environment it easily withstands -15 °C. There are no special soil requirements, although obviously for significant fruit production an adequate depth and moderate fertilisation is necessary.

I managed to buy varieties I had been looking for for a long time and the order was processed sooner than I expected. A small note for the future: perhaps on the boxes containing the plants it would be useful to indicate in which direction they are to be kept, otherwise you run the risk of having your plants delivered and finding them upside down.

Perfect packaging

I had a little difficulty initially with the payment with the prepaid card. I found the packaging really perfect. The only thing was the decidedly young seedling for the price paid. I would also have paid more for an older one. Thanks anyway for everything.

This is the second time I have bought from Venditapiccolifrutti (the first on Amazon, the second directly from the company), always online. The plants arrived carefully packed and arrived in perfect condition. They were healthy and of the size stated on the site (even larger). Shipping (to Milan) was fast, about a week.

Ordering from the site is easy. When I received the tracking of the shipment I realised I had made a mistake in my address. I called the seller and he sorted everything out in no time, my contact person was very friendly and helpful. The pots were well packaged and the plants arrived undamaged. The plants arrived fresh with slightly moist soil.

A visit to piccolifrutti.it

Good morning. I approached the gentlemen at venditapiccolifrutti.it because of their proven experience in the horticultural field. They were very kind. The delivery took place at home even though the owners were not obliged to do so. I therefore thank Andrea, by the way my old schoolmate, and his son Valentino for the quality of the plants, the service rendered and the information given to me.
