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.

I received my Red pomegranate cold hardy tree Looking healthy ,packaged very nice , I got in ground it’s has been for 2 weeks , the wether still nice here in Nebraska it seems doing very Good . I appreciated the hard work that has been done to put such nice heathy products in the market to buy
Healthy sapling, love it.
Still a sapling, but growing really well.
New growth in less than two months..
I received the plants in the standard packaging but the containers had been shaken around and the dirt was loose. We watered them well and placed them in the pots where we were going to plant them. We waited for three days after we received them to let them adjust to there new location and then planted them in a sunny spot. I have already got about three inches of new growth on some of the branches and I can't wait until they start producing, we got two of them.
I planted this in-ground in early May of 2019. I was not impressed with the size but after it got established this thing has skyrocketed. I have at least 4 ft of growth on this plant in 1 season. I am training this to become a tree with multiple branches and I can tell you this is a very hardy tree. I planted pretty high above the soil line due to the clay I have and it's been great. We got lots of rain this year followed by very high temps and little rain and I haven't done much with it at all, it just keeps growing. I can't wait for this to produce fruit in the future. Would highly recommend this tree to anyone. I live in Zone 7A.
Easy to start
Planted easily, and just started growing like it had always been in that spot, even though it was the middle of summer.
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.
