Where do pomegranates grow in South Africa?

Currently, most of the country’s pomegranate farming is concentrated in the Western Cape. The province produces about 80% of the total pomegranate output,

with other regions in the country, which include Limpopo, the Northern Cape, the Free State, and the Eastern Cape, producing the rest.

What is the health benefit of a pomegranate?

Pomegranates are low in calories and fat but high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Benefits include 

antioxidants, heart health, urinary health, exercise endurance, and more. Pomegranates are round, red fruits. They feature a white inner flesh that’s packed with crunchy, juicy edible seeds called arils.

Is pomegranate farming profitable in South Africa?

Break-even is reached from the fourth to the fifth year of production, depending on the production environment and farming efficiency,

with profits conservatively ranging between R120 000/ha and R200 000/ha once the trees are in full production.
