Looks: Fantastically huge fruits up to three times the size of Wonderful with pale pink skin.

Personality: Purple sweet-tart juice, similar to Wonderful.

Facts of note: Pomegranates are not grafted onto any rootstock, so in areas where it gets cold enough to freeze the tops of the plants back sometimes, they still come back and produce the same fruit.

Hummingbirds LOVE the pomegranate flowers.

Long-lived tree, does well in any soil with inland or coastal climates.

Pollination: Self-pollinated.

Glossy–leaved, ornamental and long-lived tree with showy orange–red blossoms in late spring. Pomegranates are native to Iran and India and have been cultivated in the arid regions of the world since antiquity. They love desert climates with hot summers and cold winters they have been known to grow as far north as Utah and Washington D.C. but they rarely fruit in these latitudes. When planting, cut back the top half of the tree and cut side limbs back to 3”–6” to prevent desiccation and stress. A pomegranate can reach 20'-30' in maturity, but is more commonly seen at 12'-16'. Suitable to espalier and for containers. Pomegranates do not like to be planted as bare–roots and are difficult to establish, so we sell these No. 1 size trees (2’ to 3’) in pots to enhance their survival rate. Trees are 1 year old, and should begin to fruit the same year you plant them.



Please Note: Although most of our bare-root trees arrive to our warehouse in imid-December, there are a few varieties -- Almond, Mulberry, Walnut, Persimmon, and Jujube -- that will not arrive until mid-January. If you order any of those varieties along with varieties that arrive in mid-December, your order will be delayed for shipment until mid-January unless you ask us to split your shipments and agree to pay any additional shipping charges resulting from two separate shipments.



Check out our Fruit Tree Harvest Chart to plan for successive harvests.
