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.

Responds well to being grown as an espalier and in containers. Unsplit fruit stores for up to 2 months. Pomegranates are nice ornamentals with showy orange red spring blossoms. Bears at an early age and is productive. Widely adapted and can tolerate cool summer 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.
