POMEGRANATE

If you love Pomegranates but don’t like the scarcity or high price, these are the varieties for you. These pomegranates are huge! Very popular for making pomegranate juice, too! Especially for gardeners in the cooler zones. These are a real rarity that you will treasure in your garden for many years to come. Flowers (red) later so you don’t have to worry about late freezes. Thrive in zones 6-11 where you can plant your Poms in pots/containers and bring indoors for the winter. One of the biggest harvests on any Pomegranate Tree (Salavatski). A large mature tree can produce up to 50-100 fruit, (container grown, results will vary). So with very little space you get plenty of fruit to eat, share, and juice. Bigger fruit means less work. Russian Reds and Wonderful are large… about the size of a Grapefruit. So you get a lot more arils for the same effort. No-Fuss Trees that stands up to high humidity. Fungus is the arch enemy of any pomegranate. This is the closest you can come to Plant It… Forget It… Pick It. A remarkably tough tree that also resists insects, disease, drought and fruit splitting. Prefers full sun but can tolerate partial shade. Adapts to almost any soil, even poor ones as long as they drain well.
