Planting & Care

1. Planting: Pomegranates need full sun, 6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily, although they are quite adaptable to different soil types providing there is good drainage.

Once you’ve selected your location, dig a hole twice the size of the rootball and just as deep. Position the tree into the hole, backfill the soil, and then water the planting area well before spreading a 2 to 3-inch layer of mulch to help conserve moisture.

If you’re planting in a container, select a pot that’s about twice the width of your tree’s shipped container and ensure it has drainage holes. Use organic soil, place your tree in its pot, and water to settle the roots.

2. Watering: Pomegranates have a good tolerance to drought conditions but will perform best in somewhat moist soil. Typically, you should only water your tree once every 7 to 8 days but in the warmer seasons, you may need to provide a little more. If you’re not sure when to water, check the soil about 2 to 3 inches down – if it’s dry, it’s time to water.

3. Pruning: Prune after the first full year of growth (and before the second growing season begins). Dead, undesirable or weak branches should be removed to direct nutrients to the proper areas of the tree. By shortening larger branches, you can encourage more flowering. Remove dead/damaged limbs from the potted pomegranate in late winter – suckers near the base can be removed at any time.

4. Fertilizing: During the second year of growth, apply 2 ounces of nitrogen in the spring and then an additional ounce each following year. When the tree is about five years old, apply 6 to 8 ounces of nitrogen in the late winter before leaves begin to emerge.

Russian Pomegranate Salavatski

Punica granatum

Dr. Chris Inhulsen, Montezuma, Ga., tested Russian pomegranates and found they survived winters where the popular “Wonderful” variety killed to the ground. The plants were reported to take -6 degrees F once, and at Montezuma, GA., 8 degrees F. Salavatski was his first choice for hardy, dependable, high quality fruit. The fruits as large as the store-bought “Wonderful” variety, and are orange-red in skin and red arils. Like “Wonderful” it is a hard seeded variety. According to Dr. Levin, the originator of the variety, the hard seeded varieties can withstand colder temperatures by a few degrees than the soft seeded varieties. We can thank Dr. Levin for the many pomegranate varieties.He has given us a new fruit for our area that is beautiful and easy to grow. At our nursery in Virginia, Salavatski has fruited yearly without winter damage to the plant. Space 8′ to 10′ circle. It’s best to plant out of the winter winds. More protection and less in the open helps especially with younger plants. Salavatski has ripened in Lancaster, PA(Zone 6) planted on the south side of a home. Zones 7-10.

Demand for pomegranates

Pomegranates are deciduous in cool climates and semi deciduous in warmer climates like the sub tropics. They are very hardy plants and can grow in a wide range of soils but prefer a pH of 5.5 to 7. They grow well if watered occasionally in summer and provided with organic fertilizer. They will tolerate drought conditions once established and can grow to a height of about 4 meters . A light pruning in winter to remove any dead wood is recommended. They are attractive small trees with glossy leaves and large showy red flowers.

Less than 2% of pomegranate production occurs in the southern hemisphere and Australia imports most of its pomegranate products . It is for this reason that the market demand for pomegranate products in this country is high. The economic potential for pomegranate products including juice can be found on the Agrifutures website.

Pomegranate Trees

Pomegranate trees are relatively fast growing fruit trees that produce a sought after fruit. Pomegranates have been under cultivation since ancient times. Pomegranates have been grown in India, Persia, Spain, and Germany, just to name a few countries. The tree was introduced to California by Spanish settlers in 1769. The pomegranate tree is attractive in the landscape and is long-lived. The flowers are showy and decorative.
Pomegranate fruits are quite unique. The fruit has a round, spherical shape and it is filled with dozens of small ruby-colored seeds. This fruit produces the delicious pomegranate citrus flavored juice that is universally acclaimed. Pomegranates are used for juice, jellies, pomegranate wine, and salad dressings. The pomegranate has a long storage life. It is best maintained at a temperature of 32° to 41° F. and can be kept for a period of 7 months within this temperature range and at 80 to 85% relative humidity without shrinking or spoiling. The fruits improve in storage, becoming juicier and more flavorful.
Pomegranate fruit is low in saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium. It contains high amounts of vitamin C, calcium and iron. It produces dietary fiber and folate. Pomegranate fruit contains antioxidants which are purported to help protect blood lipids from oxidation. Click the photos to learn more, or call our plant experts at (888) 864-7663.
