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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
It's great, described as it is thank you..
Well it's still growing but it was very healthy when it arrived. I got two of them and gave one to a friend.I'm excited to see it grow.
Fast growing trees has fair prices and fairly represents their products. I received my Cold Hardy Russian Red Pomegranate on schedule. I planted it in ****** WVC soil cause I failed to plan. In a week we realized it was doing poorly and re planted it using a good garden soil. It seems like it will recover .
Very nice plant. Thnks
I ordered and the pomegranate tree arrived quick! I was surprised and it was packaged very nicely. I watered immediately and potted right away. They look very promising and I cannot wait till they start getting bigger. Very happy with my purchase and will define ordering more trees from here! Thank you!
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.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
