The Q&A Archives: What is a Plumgranny

Question: What is the correct name for a plumgranny, and where can I find the seeds to buy them?

Answer: "Plum Granny" is an old, colloquial name for pomegranates. Like apples, peaches and most other types of fruits, pomegranates are normally purchased as grafted plants of a desirable variety. 'Wonderful' is one of the most common varieties, but several others exist in the trade.
