90-100 lbs of Pomegranates, Nearly Anywhere

Pomegranates for the North and most of the South. With the Russian Red, you'll get delicious pomegranates nearly anywhere in the country. Plus, it's hassle-free, especially since it blooms later and avoids late freezes.

The Russian Red Pomegranate provides reliable fruit harvests in both good and bad years. And though it thrives in growing zones 6 through 9, it will also produce in mild zone 6 areas that are protected from harsh winds. And far North states (growing zones 3 through 5) can plant their Poms in pots to bring indoors for the winter.

Plus, the Russian Red boasts one of the biggest harvests of any Pomegranate Tree. A mature tree can produce up to 90 to 100 pounds of fruit under good conditions. So, with very little space, you get plenty of fruit to eat, share, and juice.

And the health benefits of your Russian Red can be enjoyed year-round. Eat fresh fruit for more than 4 months in the fall, and freeze the juice for the remainder of the year. Their amazing antioxidants are the gift that keeps on giving.

Plant a hedge row of Russian Reds every 8 feet along your property border - it pulls double duty as an eye-catching privacy fence and your own at-home orchard. With organic pomegranates at $3.00 per pound, you'll have a highly lucrative landscape!

Best of all, the Russian Red produces one of the best-tasting pomegranates. Slightly sweeter taste meets larger fruit for a spin on nature's candy. And Russian Reds are large, almost the size of a grapefruit.

Even better? The no-fuss Russian Red stands up to humidity. Unlike other Pom varieties, it's highly tolerant and therefore resists funguses that plague other cultivars. Basically, you can plant it, forget it and pick it. It's a remarkably tough tree that also resists insects, disease, drought and fruit splitting.

Furthermore, the Russian Red prefers full sun but can tolerate partial shade. Versatility and ease? Check. Also, it adapts to almost any soil type, even poor ones, as long as they're well-drained.

And you need only one Russian Red to produce fruit, but you'll greatly increase production with a second. In fact, it's a must if you want 90 to 100 pounds of pomegranates per tree each year. We recommend cross-pollination with additional Russian Reds or Wonderfuls.

This tree is growing in popularity with organic orchards, which buy Russian Reds in large numbers. We recommend that you place your order before we sell out for the season: home-grown, delectable pomegranates are just a click away with the Russian Red!

 





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.

Impressive packaging, gives the plants a fighting chance.
I ordered two of the Russian pomegranates. Due to mandatory evacuations, the first order was returned to the company. They sent new plants which were delayed due to fire evacuations. They finally were delivered. The plants were well packaged and appeared in great shape. The root balls were still moist and intact. At planting, they appeared healthy. Fortunately, our fall northern California weather has been favorable allowing some adjustment time. A good start; time will tell how they handle the winter.

Very excited
I purchased 2 pomegranate trees. They arrived very healthy with lots of leaves. Planted immediately in zone 6b with mulch. Took them a few weeks to settle in. Pruned the end of many of the branches and they have really taken off. They are about 40 feet apart from one another. One has doubled in height in about 3 months. The other is bushing out more. Our soil has a fair amount of clay, but they are thriving. Hopefully we will get some blooms this summer. Plan to mulch them well this winter and hope for the best. Thrilled by the possibility of pomegranates one day. Thanks Fast growing trees for good products and excellent and responsive customer service.

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.

All of my purchases today are long term investments which will pay me back season after season all the way up until I sell my house where I will hopefully have some added valuation due to having established fruit bearing trees, bushes, and plants on the property. As you guys definitely know, there is nothing like going out back and grabbing some fresh fruits or vegetables.. these are just another addition to living off my land and controlling the quality of what goes in my body.

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.

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.

I live in zone 6. What month can this Russian pomegranate plant can be planted down?
Chaul on Aug 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They can be planted all year, as long as the ground isn’t frozen. If you plant your tree during the summer, especially during a heat wave of drought then give your tree extra water. The best time to plant is in the fall, six weeks before the first frost so your tree can get rooted into the ground before winter, or in the spring six weeks after the final frost, giving it time to become established before summer heat sets in. Keep in mind that planting during the summer still gives your tree enough time to get rooted in before the winter.

At what time of year for grow area 7 should you get a tree like this to be established for being outside for winter? February is too cold to put a young tree out and indoor temperatures too hot and dry..All reviews don't mention time of year received per grow area.

BEST ANSWER: Planting in winter/early spring, while they are in their dormant stage helps them get their roots, established without having to give nutrients to the rest of the tree.
In the description it says "harsh Winds" can you give more detail is this because of the cold or damage from wind?
