The Pomegranate Story
The pomegranate is a fruit-bearing deciduous shrub that grows between 5 and 10m tall. The pomegranate originated in the region extending from Iran to northern India, and has been cultivated since ancient times throughout the Mediterranean region.
South African pomegranates are highly regarded for their good eating quality.
Star South procures all its pomegranates in the Western Cape province. We have a very close relationship with our growers and they share our philosophy of quality over quantity.
We start with the Acco variety in February, and in mid-March we switch over to the Wonderful variety. Apart from selling our pomegranates locally to retailers, we also ship to Europe, the UK, Middle East, Africa and SEA until week 26.
