Highly ornamental shrub to small tree with attractive foliage, flowers and fruit.

The pomegranate is very adaptable tree and will grow in regions ranging from temperate to tropical. It is deciduous tree  that is generally best maintained at around 2- 3m high but can reach up to 3-5m if it is left unpruned. Like most fruit trees it prefers a well draining soil with a sunny aspect.   The attractive trees are frost hardy and make a very ornamental garden specimen. They are suited for growing in large pots and in general will start to fruit once the trees get about 1 metre tall.

Our pomegranate  trees are are 8-12 months old, 40-60cm tall are sun hardened and ready to plant into a larger pot or directly into the ground.

Pomegranates can be used for both fruit and juice. The health food industry is interested in the juice for the high levels of anti-oxidants contained in each fruit. Each fruit can produce as much as 50% of its weight in juice.

We only send trees early in the week to try and  ensure they arrive at their destination before the weekend.
Please note: due to quarantine restrictions plants cannot be sent to Northern Territory, Tasmania  or Western Australia.
