The Q&A Archives: How to grow pomegranates

Question: Would like to know all information you may have on the old fashioned fruit called pomegranates. Haven't seen any in years and are they hard to grow, in what climate, how long to produce, how big the plant and do you sell them?

Answer: Pomegranates, one of my favorite odd fruits, are bush shrubs to 20 feet tall in the right climate. They survive where winters do not drop below 15 degrees F, and are at their best where summers are warm and dry. They are adapatable to most any soil but prefer heavy loams. They're also happy, for a time, in containers. There are a few edible varieties such as 'Wonderful' and 'Utah Sweet' as well as a few ornamental varieties with extra dwarf habits and/or beautiful flowers (but no fruit worth eating). Plants produce from a young age on. Yes, they are very easy to grow (in the right climate) but no, we do not carry them.
