Product Description

Our Dwarf Pomegranate Tree is ideal for growing tropical fruit… no matter where you live. Glossy, bright green foliage covers the showy, dense shrub that grows to a manageable 2-4' tall. This miniature pomegranate tree produces bright coral-red, funnel-shaped blooms emerge during the warm weeks of summer, followed closely by bright orange fruit that are filled with plump, delicious arils. It can be planted directly into the garden in warmer climates, but makes a very attractive patio plant or indoor ornamental in all hardiness zones. Move your dwarf pomegranate indoors for winter; position plant away from direct heat sources. Let dry out completely between watering. Prune lightly in late fall; blooms on new growth. Punica granatum 'nana'

Additional Product Info

Where is the best place to plant a dwarf pomegranate tree?

The best place to plant a miniature pomegranate tree is in a warm, sunny spot in zones 8-10. Find out which zone you're in using our Zone Finder tool. However, the small size of these pomegranate trees make them ideal for growing in containers. We suggest a 20 gallon container for these miniature orchard trees. Plant your dwarf pomegranate in potting soil, using a well-draining, sandy mixture. Then, give it a location on a sunny porch or patio, and let it enjoy its time outside.

What kind of winter care do dwarf pomegranate trees need?

Dwarf pomegranates are not particularly cold-hardy, and should be overwintered indoors in zones below Zone 8. Move your trees inside before the first frost date, and don't allow them to freeze. These trees prefer temperatures above 40 degrees Fahrenheit year-round. However, despite the no-freeze rule, you do want to allow these trees to go dormant. Provide light watering only for the winter months, watering very lightly every week or two.

If you're gardening in a warm zone, your pomegranate will need very little winter care. Just allow the plant to go dormant naturally, and mulch around the base if you expect a chilly winter.

What kind of watering method is best for miniature pomegranate trees

During the warm months, watering the dwarf pomegranate tree twice a week is best. Make sure to water at the root, not the leaves, and to water in the morning when the heat is lowest. Keep in mind that plants grown in containers tend to dry out more quickly than plants grown in-ground. Allow your pomegranate's soil to dry completely before re-watering.

How long does it take for dwarf pomegranate trees to produce fruit?

Dwarf pomegranate trees tend to bear fruit several seasons after germination. Our three inch pomegranate plants are two to three years old, and therefore will fruit after two or three seasons in your landscape. Keep in mind that this miniature pomegranate tree produces miniature pomegranates-the fruit will be juicy, sweet, and about two inches in diameter. This tree is also self-pollinating, so you don't need to have two in order to enjoy its fruit.

Once your tree bears fruit, harvest the fruit before it fully ripens to avoid losing any of your crop. Pomegranates will ripen in cold storage.
