PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION

When placing your orders for potted tree/plants, please be aware that AS SOON as the potted trees/plants are available to ship (Dec. for trees, Jan. for plants), we will begin shipping IMMEDIATELY - no matter where you are located !!!

There are several factors why we must ship immediately:

  • We can only ship potted tree/plants items when they are dormant. With us being located in CA, trees/plants can come out of dormancy well before the rest of the nation is ready to plant.
  • We receive our potted tree/plants in successive deliveries. We need to move them out quickly, as our space is limited.
  • It is very challenging, if not impossible, to keep track of who gets what when dealing with ten's of thousands of trees/plants and 200 varieties over 3 months, hence we must adhere to our policy.

ATTENTION "POLAR VORTEX" AFFECTED CUSTOMERS

When your order arrives, you should remove it from the outside elements before nightfall. If you will not be present at the destination when the order will be delivered, you should either ship the order to another location or make sure someone will be there to take care of your order.

While your order is hardy enough to withstand freezing temperatures in its box, you definitely should not leave it outside in sub-zero temperatures for days on end.

AS IMPORTANTLY, you then need to open the box, remove the potted tree/plants from their shipping box, store them in a basement, cellar or garage, and keep them moist until you are able to plant them in the ground in Spring.


  • Zones: 7-10
  • Chill hours: 150
  • Harvest: September 5 - October 10
  • 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.
