The Q&A Archives: will the dwarf pomegranate bear fruit?

Question: We bought a dwarf pomegranate at home depot and the flowers are beautiful but will it produce fruit?

Answer: The flowers on a dwarf pomegranate are beautiful, indeed. And, they will turn into little pomegranates. Although you could eat them, they are so small and there are so few seeds that it's hardly worth the effort. I leave mine on the plant and they split open when they're overripe - the birds find them delightful.

Best wishes with your new little shrub!
