The Parflanka Pomegranate is a large-sized Pomegranate. It is a sweet-tart, almost wine-like-tasting, variety with a bright red skin color. The Parflanka Pomegranate was rated by the California Fruit Growers taste tests as one of the best Pomegranates.

Purchasing

An Parfianka Pomegranate should have an attractive deep colored skin without sunburn, growth cracks, cuts, bruises, and decay. The Parfianka Pomegranate should be heavy for its size, since that means it contains the most juice.

Storage

Once purchased, Parfianka Pomegranates should be refrigerated. They can last 3 to 4 weeks refrigerated. The whole fruit should not be frozen but once the Pomegranate is De-seeded, the seeds can be frozen in a sealed plastic bag. The seeds should last for 6 weeks in the freezer.

Culinary Uses

The Parflanka Pomegranate is a good producer and can be eaten fresh. It also makes very good quality juice.

Portion Size

Allow 5-10 Parfianka Pomegranate seeds per person.
