Does anyone have a picture of a fruiting Wonderful Pomegrana

I bought what was tagged a "Wonderful" fruiting pomegranate from a nursery, and it is absolutely thriving (for four years now) in my yard, but it has never set any fruit. The flowers are bright red, very thick, ruffly, and carnation-like. I wonder if I have an ornamental variety instead, or if that is what wonderful blooms look like. Googling brings up conflicting photos (some look like mine, some look compltely different)

I did that already-I tried google images for Wonderful Pomegranate flower, and get many results, however, they look different. Some are a double flower, and some are a less-full flower. I'm wondering if anyone has a double-flowering wonderful that actually produces fruit? There is mention of one that looks similar to mine that also doesn't set fruit-but I wonder what a true, fruiting, wonderful bloom looks like.

LE Cooke includes flower photos for some of its fruit trees, and it looks like Wonderful is one of them

Thank you, that is exactly what I was looking for. My flower looks nothing like that, I must have gotten a mistagged ornamental variety. :(

But the ornamentals do fruit as well, just not to the amount, size, and taste of ones grown for fruit.


Google "pomegranate yahoo group" to see a forum dedicated to poms. You can't post yahoo group links here...
