90 to 100 lbs of Pomegranates, Nearly Anywhere
Why Cold Hardy Red Pomegranate Trees?
Delivering pomegranates up north and down south, the Red Pomegranate lives up to its name, thriving in frigid, tundra-like conditions down to 0 degrees. With the Red Pomegranate, you'll get delicious pomegranates nearly anywhere in the country. Plus, it's hassle-free, especially since it blooms later and avoids late freezes with ease.
The Red Pomegranate provides reliable fruit harvests in both good and bad years. Far north states (growing zones 3 through 5) can plant their Poms in pots to bring indoors for the winter. Plus, it boasts one of the biggest harvests of any pomegranate variety. 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. With organic pomegranates at $3.00 per pound, you'll have a highly lucrative landscape!
Unlike other Pom varieties, it's highly tolerant of disease 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.

Not only is this variety nearly impossible to find at local garden centers or other nurseries...but Red Pomegranates from Fast Growing Trees arrive directly to your door with better branching and healthier roots, ready to thrive without any hassle on your part.
You need only one 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 Red Pomegranate Cold Hardys for the biggest bounties possible.
We carry two tasty varieties of the Red Pomegranate, the Salavatski and the Sur Anor. Both are ready for harvest around October with the Salavastski turning red and tasting slightly tart and the Sur Anor turning a unique orange mottled color with a sweet flavor. Whichever kind you receive enjoy homegrown pomegranates for years to come!
Plus, with our larger sizes...you could get fruit as soon as the first few seasons.
Either way, we recommend that you place your order before we sell out for the season: Home-grown pomegranates are just a click away with the Red Pomegranate Cold Hardy Tree!
Cold-Hardy Red Pomegranate Pollination
Cold-Hardy Red Pomegranates are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional pollinator will drastically increase the size of your crop. Below are the most effective pollinators we have chosen for your area...
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Pomegranates need full sun, 6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily, although they are quite adaptable to different soil types providing there is good drainage.
Once you've selected your location, dig a hole twice the size of the rootball and just as deep. Position the tree into the hole, backfill the soil, and then water the planting area well before spreading a 2 to 3-inch layer of mulch to help conserve moisture.
If you're planting in a container, select a pot that's about twice the width of your tree's shipped container and ensure it has drainage holes. Use organic soil, place your tree in its pot, and water to settle the roots.
2. Watering: Pomegranates have a good tolerance to drought conditions but will perform best in somewhat moist soil. Typically, you should only water your tree once every 7 to 8 days but in the warmer seasons, you may need to provide a little more. If you're not sure when to water, check the soil about 2 to 3 inches down - if it's dry, it's time to water.
3. Pruning: Prune after the first full year of growth (and before the second growing season begins). 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 near the base can be removed at any time.
4. Fertilizing: During the second year of growth, 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 to 8 ounces of nitrogen in the late winter before leaves begin to emerge.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Ordered a gallon sized hardy pomegranate in April 2020 to replace one that was unfortunately the victim of getting trampled to death during a late night soccer game in our backyard. This bush not only survived a very cold and snowy 2021/22 winter in Connecticut (zone 6b) but so far has thrived and is now almost 5 feet tall. Cannot wait for next year to see if it starts producing fruit. Will update then.
I decided to keep mine on the porch for a year so they would be a bit stronger when I put them in the ground. To my great surprise, after 2 months they already grew 6 inches AND have little flowers! I wasn't expecting that for a couple years! I'm excited to see how they grow and one day fruit!
Cold-Hardy Red Pomegranate
Tree arrived with many fresh leaves and then they all fell off. Kept it in the sun, during early spring. The branches started to pop-out many new leaves and has continued. Have planted it and protected from natural wildlife. Will see next year how much it has grown.
Entering Season 3....
Acquired a 2 gallon size of cold-hearty Russian Red pomegranate in March 2020. It arrived in great condition and did well during a brief stay in our greenhouse before being planted in a sunny section of the yard in late spring. It grew a few small pomegranates within weeks of arrival; those grew to be a little bigger than marbles before they were taken down by birds. By the second season, it had put off 6-8 pomegranates, but I didn't get to quick enough to save from birds. It's currently 6 1/2 - 7 feet high, still filling out with leaves and gearing up for season 3. This year's crop hasn't started to form yet, so I still have time to install netting. This young tree successfully weathered a heat wave approaching 110 F and a cold snap consisting of a week with daytime temps in the low 20's and evenings in the teens with wind chill. Appears unfazed!
Arrived alive and are doing well.
