It requires moderate watering and is hardy in Zones 7-10. It requires between 100-200 chill hours. Bears fruit between 2-5 years.

How to Plant
STEP 2) 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.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. 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.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
My pomegranate came well packaged with a note (manual) regarding its travel condition/experience and care. My pomegranate is now planted in my yard. I took the initiative to prune it back once it was in the ground for a few weeks. It is thriving.
All is well.
i receive trees in a very good condition. plant them in the same day.
both trees were packaged very well. planted both same day and trees seem to have taken right away look healthy and green.
I received this tree in wonderful shape. Leaves are green and a little Pom bud was growing! Great height for a starter tree too. It was very much alive and shipping took hardly any time! I will definitely be making more purchases to this shop. Thank you.
The tree is about 2 feet tall. Not knowing much about pomegranates I was a little surprised it was kind of bush like, but it's very healthy and will be a great addition to my yard.
