90-100 lbs of Pomegranates & Thrives almost Everywhere!

Russian Red is the best Pomegranate for the North, but also most of the South! Organic fruit orchards from Florida all the way up to Pennsylvania are amazed at how tough and trouble-free this tree is.

You get reliable fruit harvests in good years and bad. There are several Poms that will grow in Northern climates. Problem is... most are early bloomers. They can set fruit, only to be wiped out by sporadic late freezes. Many Southern states are prone to this as well.

Russian Red flowers later so you don't have to worry about late freezes. Thrives in zones 6-11. But will also produce in mild zone 6 areas that are protected from harsh winds. Far Northern states (zones 3-5) can plant their Poms in pots and bring indoors for the winter.

One of the Biggest harvests of any Pomegranate Tree. A mature tree can produce up to 90-100 lbs under good conditions (your results may vary). So with very little space you get plenty of fruit to eat, share, and juice.

Enjoy the health benefits of your Pomegranates all year long. Eat fresh fruit over 4 months in the fall and freeze the juice for the remainder of the year. Plant a hedge row, of Russian Reds, every 8 ft along your property border, so you'll never run out. At $3.00 a pound for organic pomegranates, you could trim them into a highly lucrative privacy fence.

One of the best tasting Pomegranates. Many people mistake Russian Red fruit for the Wonderful variety found in grocery stores. If you're a Pom Connoisseur you'll find Russian Red to be slightly sweeter.

Bigger fruit means less work. Russian Reds are large... about the size of a Grapefruit. So you get a lot more arils for the same effort. Up until now, the 'easy to grow' varieties have tended to have small fruit and not much of it.

A No-Fuss Tree that stands up to High Humidity. Fungus is the arch enemy of pomegranates. Unusually heavy weeks of rain in spring or late summer can cause problems for many poms. This can happen in most areas of the country and happens almost every year in the South-Eastern states. Russian Red is highly tolerant of humidity.

This is the closest you can come to Plant It... Forget It... Pick It. A remarkably tough tree that also resists insects, disease, drought and fruit splitting. Prefers full sun but can tolerate partial shade. Adapts to almost any soil, even poor ones as long as they drain well (avoid consistently soggy areas).

You need only one Russian Red to produce fruit, but you'll greatly increase production with a second. This is a must if you're going to get close to 90-100 lbs per tree per year. You can cross pollinate with additional Russian Reds or Wonderfuls.

Order Now before we sell out for the season. This tree is growing in popularity with organic orchards who buy in large numbers. We recommend that you place your order before we sell out for the season.





Cold Hardy Russian Red Pomegranate Pollination

Cold Hardy Russian Red Pomegranate are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Cold Hardy Russian Red Pomegranate will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Nice Plants
They arrived well packed and looking healthy. We planted them immediately and one started putting on new leaves in just a couple of days. Since they were planted about a week ago we will need to give them time to judge their growth rate and if they are hardy enough to tolerate the cold North Georgia winters

Beautiful tree
We live in Western North Carolina, on the very top of a mountain where our winters are often brutal. If our tree makes it, I'll happily order several more. Our Pomegranate tree arrived a couple of days ago, and it was well-packed and hydrated. It looked very healthy, and there were many leaves on the tree as well. I was quite surprised at the size of the tree, since it was larger than I thought it would be. It also had small red flowers on it. I can't wait to see how it does. I can't judge the growth rate or hardiness just yet, but will keep you informed.

So far this tree is doing very well. It has even produced a couple of blooms. Even during transportation it remained intact, also due to the fact that you take all kinds of pains to pack the plants adequately. Thank you for your wonderful service.

Cold Hardy Russian Red Pomegranate
I bought this tree and was shipped together with a Lemon tree. It arrived fast, well secured and packaged. It had the right ordered size with very healthy and vibrant leaves. I've already planted it in ground and hope it will continue to grow, bare fruits, and survive our growing zone 6 weather. This is my 3rd tree ordered from this reputable nursery and I surely recommend it to all. I'm so far 100% satisfied.

Pleasantly surprised!
Recently received my Cold Hardy Russian Pomegranate in the mail. I was pleased with the size and how pretty this tree is. So far, so good. I am excited to see if it will have fruit on it this year. I ordered a 5-in-1 pear tree, a 5-in-1 apple tree and an apricot tree last year and this year they are so much fuller and had so many blossoms. It takes about a year for a tree to get established, and I am certain that a year from now my wonderful pomegranate will be even more beautiful.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Cold Hardy Russian Red Pomegranate


Cold Hardy Russian Red Pomegranate Planting Diretions

The cold hardy Russian red pomegranate (Punica granatum) is a touch of the tropics to the colder areas where none would normally grow. Best suited for USDA growing zones 6-11 it can tolerate cold snaps as low as zero degrees once established! Reaching a dwarf mature height/width of 8-10 feet, this full sun loving, moderately drought tolerant, fast growing tree can produce fruit in its first year with proper care! The Russian red is also quite humidity tolerant which is good as pomegranates tend to be affected by fungus in overly humid growing conditions. Once the tree has reached its mature stature, it can grow anywhere from 90-100 lbs of fruit each year! The Russian pomegranate will produce on its own but for an extra boost in fruit yield, we recommend adding another nearby or utilizing a Wonderful pomegranate for additional pollination.

Choosing a location: Pomegranates need full sun and loamy soil to perform best although they are quite adaptable to different soil types providing there is good drainage. Try to allow a good 20 feet of space from other trees and structures for the tree to grow unless you plan on keeping it a shorter height through pruning. They do not care for areas susceptible to heavy winds.

Planting directions (in ground):
1) Make your hole twice the size of the root ball and just as deep. If there is a large amount of clay in the native soil, try to amend with sand and perlite to improve the drainage.
2) Carefully remove the tree from its pot and gently comb the sides of the root ball with your hands to free up the roots a bit.
3) Position the tree into the hole and keep it straight as you begin to back fill the hole. Tamp down with your hands to prevent air pockets from forming around the root system.
4) Water the planting area well (but do not over saturate the soil) and then spread a 2-3 inch layer of mulch to help conserve moisture.

Planting directions (potted):
1) Select a pot that will be large enough to grow the tree and be sure it has multiple holes in the bottom. Proper drainage is essential for your pomegranate’s survival.
2) Place the tree into the container and begin to fill in around the roots. Your soil should be loose, loamy and rich in organic material. Do not cover the trunk of the tree with soil.
3) Water your tree and tamp down on the soil eliminating any air pockets that may have developed while potting the tree.
4) Place your tree in a location indoors where it will receive full sun which in turn will give you the best fruiting results.

Watering: Pomegranates have a good tolerance to drought conditions but will perform best in a somewhat moist soil, but overly saturated soil will lead to serious issues. Flower/fruit drop and root rot are the results of the tree receiving an excessive amount of moisture. Typically you should only water your tree once every 7-8 days but in the warmer seasons you may need to provide a little more. Provide 2-3 gallons of water per session but be careful not to water too much in a single setting if you haven’t kept up with the normal 7-8 day regimen, it may shock the tree. It’s better to provide small amounts of water more frequently. A weekly deep watering of the potted pomegranate tree will be sufficient. You may need to provide a little more in the hotter season.

Pruning: Avoid doing any trimming of the tree in its first year of growth. When ready to prune be sure to do so after the threat of any frosts/freezes have passed and before the tree is about to start growing. Dead, undesirable or weak branches should be removed to direct nutrients to the proper areas of the tree. By shortening larger branches you can encourage more flowering. Remove dead/damaged limbs from the potted pomegranate in late winter. “Suckers” can be removed at anytime.

Fertilizing: Do not fertilize your tree for the first year of growth. In the second year, if your pomegranate is performing poorly then fertilizer may be needed to supplement the right nutrients to the tree. Apply 2 ounces of nitrogen in the spring and then an additional ounce each following year. When the tree is about five years old, apply 6-8 ounces of nitrogen in the late winter before leaves begin to emerge. Take care not to over fertilize or it will stunt your bloom production with the excessive nitrogen.

Fertilize your potted pomegranate tree regularly during the growing season. Using a half strength liquid 8-8-8 formula, feed the tree once every two weeks during the growing season. Be sure to follow the instructions on the label for the correct application. Potted trees tend to become zinc deficient which can be identified by a yellowing of the leaves. Spraying the foliage with a diluted zinc solution can fix this issue. Compost or manure can also be beneficial but take care not to use anything with an excessive amount of nitrogen. Although this will encourage a good foliage, it will deter flower production.

How far apart should you plant Russian Pomegranate from each other?
Saima S on Apr 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello. I grew up in California. There we had many pomegranates. They r very drought tolerant, I believe that they actually prefer dryer soil over moist that way the pomegranates are a lot sweeter. As far as how far to plant them apart, I would say at the most 10 feet But they would be OK if planted evening to 3 feet apart they don't mind if you don't have much room in your yard then I would say probably 6 feet apart should be perfect. You can also control which directions The branches will grow by trimming the ones you don't need. Pomegranate or not he tree so there will be many branches coming out from many different directions. I like to cut those little branches off and make my pomegranate look like a tree have one main storm coming from the ground and two or three coming from that. Now I live in Portland Oregon I bought a Russian hardened party pomegranates hopefully it survives here and bears fruit I know it likes extreme heat and dry conditions so I am worried that there won't be enough time for the pomegranate to ripen before winter rain hits. Hope you have much success with your pomegranates It's a fun tree to grow.
I see that these do well in the cold, how do they do in the heat? I live in Northern Nevada and our temps can range from 3 degrees in the winter to 103 degrees in the summer.

Are these organic? The title and description doesn't seem to specifically state so.
Lvmama on Apr 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: To comply with USDA phytosanitary regulations, we are required to apply a mild chemical treatment to all trees shipped over state lines. This treatment is required to prevent the spread of potentially devastating pathogens from one state to another and is mandatory for all growers. Once your trees arrive, you can use all natural and organic growing techniques to grow organic fruit.
I am in Zone 6, I planted two trees earlier this summer. Is there something I need to do with them for the winter?
Fred M on Aug 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm in Zone 7 and just made sure to put a lot of leaf mulch on top of it. This plant emerges slowly in the spring so don't give up hope if you don't see anything for a long time. I'm thinking of mulching even more this winter to protect the main stem more in hopes of not having it die completely back - to facilitate possible blooms/fruits next year.
How deep is the root system on the Pomegranate tree and can they be panted in a clay soil? (I live in Northern Utah near the Great Salt Lake where the soil is alkaline and clay.)
Jared B on Sep 5, 2016

I hope this helps you.
