When planted right, and in the right spot Pomegranates are very easy to grow.
Though pomegranates will tolerate most any type of average garden soil, as with most other fruit trees, Pomegranate grow best in a deep, loam soil rich in organic matter. Constantly soggy or wet soil can be problematic. So make sure to plant in a well-drained site. Brief periods of flooding won't cause problems provided the soil is well-draining. If you live in an area that can experience long rainy periods it's best to plant Pomegranate on raised beds or mounds. The soil pH tolerance for Pomegranate is wide as well. They will grow in moderately acid to moderately alkaline soils that range from 4.5 to 8.2 on the pH scale, so pH usually isn't a concern.
The best and most pomegranate fruits will be produced when plants are growing in full sun. However, pomegranate plants that receive a little shade during the hottest part of summer days will still produce good crops.
Note: We suggest providing some protection in the form of a thick layer of mulch or wrapping plants with a protective cover during abnormally cold periods of winter, when temperatures drop below 10 degrees F. Planting your Red Sweet Pomegranate on the south or east side of a structure will provide protection against west and north winter winds.
NOTE: Our Red Sweet Pomegranate seedlings will start producing fruit within 2 years and reach maximum production in 3 to 4 years.
