Red Silk Pomegranate Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Red Silk Pomegranate Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Before you plant, scout out a suitable location for your Red Silk Pomegranate Tree. Red Silks thrive in full sun areas, with 8 to 10 hours of sunlight each day, and in well-drained soil.
After you’ve chosen your location, dig a hole that’s at least two to three times wider than your Red Silk’s root ball. After placing your plant, back fill its soil, tamp down the soil and lastly, water to help establish its roots.
2. Watering: Though it’s drought tolerant and heat tolerant once established, you should follow a regular watering schedule during your Red Silk’s first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. We recommend watering once weekly. However, if you’re not sure when to water, simply check the soil with your finger, about 2 to 3 inches down. If the surrounding soil is dry, it’s time to water your Red Silk Pomegranate.
3. Pruning: Pomegranates grow as a bush or a tree – simply prune into whichever form you prefer.
4. Fertilizing: Apply any balanced organic fertilizer or well-composted manure during the spring and fall to bolster your Red Silk’s growth.
