Pomona - Goddess of Fruit Trees and Fruit

Pomona was the goddess of fruit trees, garden, and orchards which she watches over and cares for. She was said to be a wood nymph who scorned the love of Silvanus and Picus. She married Vertumnus, who tricked her into talking to him by disguising himself as an old woman. She and Vertumnus shared a festival held on August 13. Her priest was called flamen Pomonalis and a sacred grove, called the Pomonal, was located at Ostia.
