Anyone ever tasted an Angel Red pomegranate? I just bought one here in San Antonio, TX and I read on-line that it is a new variety that is considered a gourmet variety. I already have a pomegranate tree that I posted in a different post that was supposed to be a Parfianka pomegranate and it turned out to be a sweet pomegranate variety, I wonder how these all differ from each other.

Angel Red tastes very similar to the Pom Wonderful variant that is sold in stores. The plant is very vigorous, probably more vigorous than Wonderful, and ripens about a month earlier than Wonderful. I grow a number of pomegranates at my home in Phoenix.

So what variety has the most unique flavor of pomegranates?

Depends on your palate. Parfianka, Sin Pepe, Desertnyi all have distinct, but very good flavors. Utah Sweet is kinda bland.

What about the sweet variety? I was sent one by mistake and I hope it tastes delicious. When I was buying the Angel Red the garden store also sold another variety called Austin, the pick showed a giant but butt ugly pomegranate.

I wonder if I made a mistake purchasing the Angel Red, some people say it takes a couple of years to produce fruit, this sweet I planted in February produced two fruits and it was only about two feet tall when I planted it.

Our Angel Red is still small, planted from bareroot this year. But pretty and a few flowers
