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.

Start enjoying the beauty, health benefits and unique flavor of this amazing fruit. Order today while supplies are still available

It's Easy to Plant your Wonderful Pomegranate

Specific Directions for Wonderful Pomegranate

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.

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

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.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

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.

Antcipating years of growth and fruit production
We received our healthy pomegranate tree and immediately planted it as instructed. So far, it has grown about 10 inches and it appears healthy and on track. We are excited to see if
it produces buds and fruit in the coming years. if so, we may
purchase another one.

The plants have arrived in good condition.
But rate of growth is extremely slow.
Not a single new leaf nor a new twig grew.
It is now going into first winter with us.
Let's hope it survives.
Should I I cover and wrap it up or should I leave it open?
Hope it lives to be a healthy tree as advertised online.
Thank you

This is the only 4 star tree I've received from FGT (the rest were 5's). The tree is well branched - sorta - lots of branches but none face one way, nothing growing to one side. Really I'm not complaining because there are a lot of branches and that's where the fruit is coming from, I didn't buy it as an ornamental - and - when I ordered it showed as only 1 in stock - - - FGT has spoiled me. I'm definitely looking forward to the wonderful fruit to come

I planted my 1 foot Wonderful in July, 2010. It grew to about 5' in 18 months. I pruned it back to 4' so it would make a bush instead of a tree. It is now January, 2012 and already sprouting new leaves. With such fast growth, I hope to have flowers this summer. I live in zone 9

Can this be shipped to Converse Texas I got a message that there is a restriction on this Pomegranite Tree?
Pamela on Jun 9, 2014
Best Answer: It's really a shame Texas won't allow to ship here. I live in Texas and have a Wonderful, as does a neighbor down our street - and they grow BEAUTIFULLY! I got my plant from a local nursery and it actually bloomed the first year and I got one little fruit!!! Now that it is a substantial 8-10 foot tree... and still growing..I got a lot of fruit last year. Our neighbor down the street has a 20 foot tree and they had a TON of fruit last year. This is a fast grower, in my experience. And the fruit - it's DELICIOUS!

This is the first tree planting kit (and tree) I have ordered that did not come with a new/bigger container. The container that came with this tree in it is very small. Is this container going to be sufficient? Should I replant it in a bigger container? I am in Zone 6; therefore, it must be a potted tree for me.

how big is the fruit and how long before it is established to produce abundant fruit?
A shopper on Sep 1, 2014
Best Answer: I purchased a 5 ft tree which is potted because I live in a cold zone and must bring it indoors during the winter. It produced a normal sized pomegranate (4 in diameter) the year I ordered it. However, if you are able to plant it outdoors I am sure you will have a higher production of fruit. It also produces lots of beautiful red blooms! I think you will be very happy with this tree. :)

I am looking to plant a pomegranate tree in a container. Will this plant do? I would like it no highter than 7 feet tall
A shopper on Jun 26, 2014
Best Answer: It will grow fine in a container, but use as large a container as possible, otherwise you will have to water it very frequently. You can prune/trim the growth when it becomes too big for your space. Whether or not it will produce fruit - that remains to be seen.

What is a planting kit?
Gladys G on Jun 25, 2014
Best Answer:

Looks like a soil fungus beneficial to pomegranate, a tree guard to protect trunk form winter nibblers, and some fertilizer specific to pomegranate. Did not see this option last year when ordered; probably would not have ordered it anyways. Carol

when to plant pomegranate?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2014
Best Answer: The best time to plant most things is fall, when the weather is cooler and doesn't stress the plant like spring or summer plantings. In fall and winter, plants focus on growing a sting root system, putting them in a stronger position to handle the demands of the next growing season.

I live in Cincinnati, Can I plant the wonderful pomegranate tree now (October)? Does it need a lot of sun?
Kui P on Oct 7, 2014
Best Answer: Hi, I live in Colorado which is zone 5 and Cincinnati, OH is zone 6. These zones are too cold to plant a pomegranate or any other citrus tree outside, however I have a 6 ft pomegranate that I have in a large pot so that it can spend the winter indoors. Pomegranate trees do need a lot of light so I would make sure that you also purchase several full spectrum grow lights (I use Verilux 18 watt CFLs which produce 75 watts of full spectrum light and fit in a standard sized socket). They also need to be fertilized regularly with a fruit and citrus fertilizer like Jobe's Fruit and Citrus Fertilizer. I hope this helps! :)

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
