About the Afganski Pomegranate Tree

A highly adaptable and low-maintenance pomegranate tree! This delightful variety, Afganski, is a favorite among pomegranate enthusiasts, and it’s no wonder why. With its consistent cropping and high yield, you’ll be treated to an abundance of very large, red fruits. But it’s not just about quantity—the Afganski Russian pomegranate boasts a slightly tart flavor that will tantalize your taste buds.

To enjoy the fruit, cut it in half and gently tap the back with a spoon to release the juicy arils, which can be eaten fresh, used in salads, juices, desserts, or even sprinkled over savory dishes for a burst of flavor and vibrant color. Whether you enjoy them fresh or use them in your favorite recipes, these pomegranates are sure to impress.

How to Grow the Afganski Pomegranate Tree

Standing tall at a height of 10 feet, this beauty starts bearing fruit in just two years, allowing you to savor its rewards sooner. Late September to early October is the time to rejoice as the fruit ripens to perfection. And did we mention its adaptability? This tree thrives in zones 6 to 10, when planted in the ground. Cooler regions can keep this as a patio plant during the summer and a house plant during winter. A fantastic choice for a wide range of climates.

This Pomegranate tree’s versatility extends to container growing too, making it a great choice for those with limited space. Prune it as a bush with 3 to 6 main trunks, and you’ll easily manage its height.

Provide this low-maintenance tree with full sun or mostly sunny conditions, and well-drained soil, and watch it thrive. Its adaptability to nutritionally poor soils is a plus, but it truly thrives in loamy soil. So get ready to elevate your garden with the Afganski Russian Pomegranate Tree—a sweet and slightly tart delight that will keep you coming back for more!
