Description

Note: Trees are leafing out and/or may be in bloom. They need to find a home and therefore, we have marked down the price.

  • Zones: 7-10
  • Chill hours: 100
  • Harvest: September 8 - October 12
  • Looks: Somewhat greenish with a red blush and pink juiced.
  • Personality: Much sweeter than many other cultivars.
  • 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. 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 in 2-3 years.

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

Please Note: Although most of our bare-root trees arrive to our warehouse in mid-December, there are a few varieties 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. If you'd like us to split your shipments, please contact us at (800) 784-1722 or orderdesk@groworganic.com. Additional shipping charges will apply.

Guarantee

Limited Guarantee for Dormant Trees & Plants (When Planted in the Ground by April 1st)

Claim Deadline is June 1st (with the exception of persimmon trees, which have a deadline of June 15th)! Claims placed after June 1st (or June 15th for persimmon trees) will be denied.

What We Guarantee
Our only guarantee is that your dormant tree/plant will arrive in good, viable condition and will leaf out by May 15th (historically 98% of our trees do). This guarantee is only available to customers who purchased their tree/plant directly from us, and who planted their tree/plant in the ground by April 1st (or temporarily in a pot if the ground in their zone was still frozen solid).

What We Cannot Guarantee
We cannot guarantee that your tree/plant remains alive & healthy, or bears fruit, as there are too many variables beyond our control in order to do so (i.e. soil preparation, planting, fertilization, weed & pest control, adequate irrigation and/or drainage, chill hours, compatible hardiness for your zone, proper choice of pollinator, etc).

How to Request a Credit
If your tree/plant does not leaf out by May 15th, please perform a scratch test by checking for green under the bark, a few inches over the graft. If the scratch test reveals a brown cambium, that means your tree/plant is dead or dying. Watch our video titled Bare Root (Dormant) Warranty on how to perform this simple test. If the scratch test revealed that your plant is dead or dying, pull it from the ground and take pictures of the entire tree/plant, including the roots. Submit your claim & pictures by using the Return an Item tool on our Customer Service page (or email us at helpdesk@groworganic.com) no later than June 1st (or June 15th for persimmon trees). We will review your claim and issue you a credit (not a refund) for the purchase price of your tree/plant (excluding shipping).*

(*) We reserve the right to not issue credit for items already replaced. We also reserve the right to require photographic evidence that the tree/plant was not killed by root rot, rodent or mechanical damage.

Reviews

Can't wait for these to bear fruit

I am really enthused about getting some healthy things in my yard. I've heard several places this "Sweet" pomegranate is one of the best flavors there are. I love the color of the skin because it's not as similar to the other kinds, and the plant came healthy and green. I think I have a good chance at being successful because the tree/shrub came at such a good quality.

Pleasantly pleased

This product arrived promptly and with instructions. I was pleased it came with bamboo staking poles and I planted it in a patio container. Upon arrival, there were very small buds, but in the 3 weeks since planting, it is now fully leafed and beautiful.

Sweet Pomegranate Tree

Shipping was very fast and the pomegranate tree was packaged well. I was able to plant the tree the day after it arrived in one of the smart pots we ordered. Within a week it started to leaf out, we are very happy with the tree and look forward to eat pomegranate's when its mature enough to bare fruit.

So far, so good

Item arrived well packaged, with many leaf buds already forming. Has since filled out with leaves and seems to be healthy and thriving. Reserving the 5th star of my review until it blooms/fruits.

Sweet Pomegranate is AWESOME!

I planted a Sweet Pomegranate with an Eversweet Pomegranate (in the same hole) The trees fruited heavily this year, after we had an abundance of rain last year. The trees are about two years old. The fruit from my Sweet Pomegranate tree is incredibly sweet, without the tartness that one encounters with Wonderful or Eversweet. The arils of Sweet are soft and pink. It's a beautiful little fruit and is wonderful as a salad with arugula, pear slices and chopped pecans or walnuts, simply dressed with oil and vinegar. I heartily recommend Sweet Pomegranate tree.
