The heights we list are after we prune your tree.
Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back and to produce fruit.
We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.
Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.
Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you results the first full season.
Get your new plants off to the right start by using DIEHARD™ Transplant.
This soil amendment contains 16 strains of mycorrhizal fungi, biostimulants, beneficial bacteria and Horta-Sorb® water management gel.
Simply sprinkle the product into the planting hole adjacent to the root ball when planting.
The organisms will start to work right away supplying the roots with much need nutrition.
The specially formulated Horta-Sorb® will reduce transplant stress and aid in water retention.

Wonderful is, by far, the most widely planted pomegranate in the US. It thrives almost anywhere in zones 7-10. Adapts to a variety of soils. Resists drought, heat and pests. You can easily grow your pomegranates without chemicals to make your super fruit even healthier.
Abundant Producer. An established yard tree can produce 100 pomegranates or more each season. Plenty to store and share. With the high price of Pomegranates, you can save hundreds each year. You will be amazed at how much sweeter your tree-ripened fruit will taste. Wonderful seeds are highly nutritious and are soft enough to be easily chewed and eaten.
Enjoy Your Pomegranates for 7 months a year. They ripen at different rates, over a long harvest season. Plus they store better than any fruit we know of. Just keep them in a cool dark place, or refrigerate them. Wonderfuls resist bruising and discoloration.
Grow in any size yard. Your tree quickly reaches 8 to 12 feet and loves to be pruned. Most people leave them in their natural, bushy form, while others trim off lower branches to make them more tree like. Their roots are well behaved... so you can even plant them next to your home or a fence. Pomegranate trees can live 100 years or more and produce into an old age
Northern growers can pot their Wonderful in a container. The fruit does not like temperatures below 12 F. Just move it in your garage or indoors during the coldest part of winter.
The Wonderful is self pollinating, meaning that you only need one to produce fruit. Still, each tree will produce even more with a second pollinator.
This is a fun tree that's always doing something. In the spring you get incredible Flaming, Orange, Red Blooms that last all the way into summer. They attract hummingbirds and light up your landscape. Throughout the summer, the large, bright red fruit overtakes your tree. Then in the fall, your fruit is ready to enjoy and your leaves turn a brilliant yellow.
We grow your tree to fruit the 1st year, NOT 5-10 years. Seed grown trees won't fruit until they mature. So they can grow to be 12 feet tall and still not fruit. We don't grow from seed. Instead, we grow from cuttings taken from a mature Mother Tree... proven to make exceptionally delicious fruit. This thousand year old process is natural and non GMO. It's used by commercial Pomegranate growers to ensure the best tasting fruit and faster fruit production. This process takes us a lot more time and work, which is why many nurseries don't do it. However, the difference for you is huge.
With other trees, you could wait up to 10 years to discover they make bad fruit. There is a lot of genetic diversity in pomegranate seeds. Sweet fruit is the exception. Fortunately, you don't have to play genetic roulette. Your tree is guaranteed to make great tasting fruit, exactly like it's parent.
Your tree has been continually pruned through it's life, not just when we send it out. So you get more branches. More branching mean more fruit. Both immediately and over the long life of your tree. This also puts more pomegranates at a safe, easy picking height.

Place your Wonderful Pomegranate Tree in an area that receives at least six hours of sunlight a day. Wonderful Pomegranate trees can tolerate shade but prefer full sun. If potted and kept indoors place your Wonderful Pomegranate Tree by a large sunny window. Wonder Pomegranate Trees will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. During the growing season give your tree a deep watering every two weeks. In the winter water your tree once a month. Only give your Wonderful Pomegranate Tree extra water during prolonged dry spells. Fertilize your Wonderful Pomegranate Tree in the early spring and early fall. When spring hits red orange blooms will emerge on your tree that turn into pomegranates soon after. Your Wonderful Pomegranate Tree will also provide you with beautiful vibrant yellow leaves in the Fall. It takes about six months for pomegranates to grow and mature. In the fall around September your Pomegranates will be ready to be harvested when their skin fully turns bright red color, and they make a metallic sound when tapped.
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Wonderful Pomegranate.
First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.
Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.
Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.
Next, separate the roots of your Wonderful Pomegranate gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.
Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.
To make it just right, use a level.
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.
Water your Wonderful Pomegranate again after the transplant is complete.
To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
