The Russian 26 Pomegranate trees make a great choice for southern planters looking for a fruit tree that can withstand the region's heat and humidity. It is also good for northern planters, since it flowers later you don't have to worry about the late freezes. The tree ripens in the fall, producing large, bright red fruit about the size of a grapefruit, that can be eaten fresh or used for juices. The tree is vase shaped and prefers well drained soil. It requires moderate watering and is hardy in Zones 7-10. It requires between 100-200 chill hours. Bears fruit between 2-5 years. A mature tree can produce 90-100 lbs of fruit under optimal conditions. At maturity, it can reach a height between 8-10 feet and a width between 8-10 feet. USDA ZONES: Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9, Zone 10.

Most Plant Me Green trees can be shipped and planted any time of year, unless the variety is specified as only seasonal delivery (such as bare root trees). Our shipping schedule is Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. This is to ensure our trees do not stay in a box longer than necessary and arrive to you as healthy as possible. If a package needs to arrive prior to a specific date, or at a more convenient time for you, please notate that upon placement of your order. On some occasions, severe weather and other unusual issues can delay shipping and delivery of your Plant Me Green package. Holiday shipping schedules are set by the carriers.
First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need. Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system. Once the tree is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material. Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets. When finished, water thoroughly. To insure your plants a successful growth rate and productive life, plant your seedlings per the instructions included in your PlantMeGreen package.
Pomegranate trees need sun and heat to thrive. They should also be planted in well-drained soil. After planting, water regularly until established. Prune to a balanced form, removing suckers. Prune annually in order to encourage higher yields.

Pomegranate Trees

I received 4 in quick fashion; they all look healthy, and the packaging was nicely done!

Very happy

The plant was very well packaged and arrived healthy. It acclimated in the shade for a few days and has done well in full sun since then.

Great shipping, healthy plant.

Purchased a Russian pomegranate tree. The plant was in excellent condition and packages very carefully. Vigorous root ball and lots of new growth have proven to result in early and quick accommodations once planted.

Something wrong with 2 tree persimmon, them died just 2 days

The tree pomegranate stil live well, but 2 persimmon trees is died , I don’t know what happened, can I return both trees?

We are glad to hear the pomegranates are doing great! We are also very appreciative that you reached out to customer service as well with a picture of the persimmons. From the picture you sent as well as the time that has passed between you receiving the tree and the tree going into decline, the plant is most likely in transplant shock. A change in environment (e.g. temperature shifts, sunlight exposure, watering, or shifting containers/container to ground, etc.) or disturbance to the roots is the most common causes for transplant shock. Persimmons are very sensitive to change in their environment and go into transplant shock more than any other tree. It will need some extra TLC but should recover and leaf out again in a few week’s time. We will keep in touch via our customer service email! -PMG

I ordered My Russian Pomegranate tree an apon arrival i couldn't believe how mature and bit it was. I got mine in the winter while dormant. It has taken off and it doing amazingly well. I love my plant thanks. I highly recommend plants from these guys. Everything I order and receive is always health and more mature then I see in the photos. This company is my number 1 spot to order over Gurney, Michigan Bulb.
