Who is Pomona: a Wood Nymph

Updated on:


Written by: Morningbird & MS Team

Pomona is a wood nymph, one of the Numia or place spirits, and the Roman Goddess of orchard fruit. Her name comes from the Latin word for fruit, the French word for apple is pomme (derived from the Latin).

Pomona loved to spend all of her time in her orchard, tending fruit trees. She was beautiful and charming and many wished to be her husband, including Silvanus, Picus and Vertumnus but she spurned all of their advances until Vertumnus came to her disguised as an old woman and talked himself up.

Pomona and Vertumnus share a feast day on August 13th. Many modern Pagans celebrate the Feast of Pomona at Samhain or the Autumnal equinox.
