Cultivation Tips:

To successfully cultivate the 'Eversweet' pomegranate tree and enjoy its sweet rewards, consider the following tips:

  1. Sunlight: Ensure that your pomegranate tree receives plenty of sunlight. Full sun exposure is ideal for optimal fruit production, so choose a location with at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight per day.

  2. Well-Drained Soil: Pomegranates thrive in well-drained, loamy soil. Good drainage is essential to prevent waterlogged roots, which can lead to root rot.

  3. Pruning: Prune your 'Eversweet' pomegranate tree to maintain its shape, remove dead or diseased branches, and encourage fruit production. Pruning can be done in late winter or early spring before new growth begins.

  4. Watering: While pomegranates are drought-tolerant once established, young trees benefit from regular watering to establish strong roots. Once established, water sparingly to avoid overwatering.

  5. Fertilization: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the spring to provide essential nutrients for growth and fruit development. Follow the recommended application rates on the fertilizer label.

The 'Eversweet' pomegranate not only delights the taste buds but also offers a wealth of potential health benefits. These are not medical claims, please see a health specialist for more detail. These include:

  1. Antioxidant Power: Pomegranates are rich in antioxidants, particularly polyphenols like anthocyanins and tannins. These compounds help combat oxidative stress and inflammation in the body.

  2. Heart Health: Regular consumption of pomegranate arils or juice may support heart health by reducing cholesterol levels, lowering blood pressure, and improving overall cardiovascular function.

  3. Cancer Prevention: Some studies suggest that the antioxidants in pomegranates may help inhibit the growth of certain cancer cells, making them a potential ally in cancer prevention.

  4. Anti-Inflammatory: Pomegranates have anti-inflammatory properties, which can help alleviate symptoms of inflammatory conditions like arthritis.

  5. Digestive Aid: Pomegranate juice may aid digestion and alleviate symptoms of digestive disorders, thanks to its fiber content and potential anti-inflammatory effects.

About Pomegranates: 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.

Guarantee

We guarantee the perishable items we sell to be in good, viable condition when we sell them. Perishable items include, but are not limited to, garlic bulbs, flower bulbs, seed potatoes, onion sets & transplants, potted or bare root trees, vegetable crowns, etc. If your perishable item arrives in substandard condition, take photographs and please contact us within 3 days of the purchase date (or delivery date) and we will provide you with a refund of the purchase price (excluding shipping costs), or a replacement. Accordingly, we urge you to open any boxes marked as ""Perishable"" immediately upon receiving them and inspect the shipment thoroughly (do not crack open heads of garlic, we do not accept claims on cracked garlic).

Eversweet pomegranate

Plant arrived looking great with healthy roots and leaves, about a foot tall. Planted it out in January and now here we are in November, less than a year later and it has already turned into a nice small bush about three feet tall! Pleasantly surprised at the quality and health of the tree. Thank you!

Traveled all the way from the west coast to east coast, and still arrived like it just came out the ground. Much bigger and bushier than expected! Look forward to possible fruit next year.
