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.

Why is Better

But the best part? You get these benefits without effort since we've planted, monitored and shipped your Pomegranate with the utmost care. Now, you get a proven performer.

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 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!

Pollination Info

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.


How tall do dwarf pomegranate trees grow?

The Cold-Hardy Red Pomegranate gets to be around 8-10 feet tall at maturity.

Are dwarf pomegranates edible?

Yes, dwarf pomegranates are edible and very tasty too!

How much fruit does a dwarf pomegranate tree produce?

It all depends on the growing conditions, climate and the amount of flowers the plant produces. If you’re wanting to reap a large harvest, make sure to fertilize and keep your trees happy—the rest is just up to nature.

Are dwarf pomegranates self-pollinating?

Dwarf pomegranates are self-fertile, but they’re not the best at pollinating themselves, so we recommend helping your plant out by hand pollinating. To do this, simply take a small paintbrush or cotton swab and go flower to flower, swirling gently in the center of the open flowers.

So far looks Ok

I received 2 plants one on the root balls was completely bare and most of the dirt was gone. The plant still looked Ok so I immediately put more soil on the roots. It took 2 days to get them in the ground do to rain. Both plants still look Ok. I'll give the no root one a few weeks. I contacted customer service and immediately put something in my file so should there be an issue I can contact again for a replacement. Cold-Hardy Red Pomegranate Review

We're sorry to hear how one of the plants arrived! We look forward to hearing how it does over the next couple of weeks!

Russian cold pomegranate tree

My new Russian Pomegranate Tree arrived well packed with a Cherry Tree I had ordered, on April 1st, 2022. I transplanted them in bigger containers and they are doing excellently. The cherry tree is full of white blossoms. The pomegranate tree started having small red leaves. I hope by September to have opened their holes in the ground to plant them. I followed all the planting instructions that came with them in the package. Thank you for packing them so well.
