Product Description

90 to 100 lbs of Pomegranates, Nearly Anywhere

Why Cold Hardy Russian Red Pomegranate® Trees?

Delivering pomegranates up north and down south, the Russian Red Pomegranate® lives up to its name, thriving in frigid, tundra-like conditions down to 0 degrees. 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 with ease.

The Russian 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, the Russian 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 Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

But the best part? You get these benefits without effort since we've planted, monitored and shipped your Russian 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 Russian 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 Russian Red Pomegranate® Cold Hardys for the biggest bounties possible.

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 Russian Red Pomegranate® Cold Hardy Tree!


Pollination Info

RUSSIAN RED POMEGRANATE® Cold Hardy Tree Pollination

RUSSIAN RED POMEGRANATE® Cold Hardy Trees 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.

I recommend this product

I gave it to my adult son for a birthday present. He said it came with no directions for care and planting. He e-mailed you and got a quick response.
