Would this Pom do well as an indoor plant fall- spring, and outside only in the summer? And, how is the fruit? Is I for juicing or fresh eating? Thanks - I love pomegranates, but live in Montana!
Ann S on Jan 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Your plan is perfect! That is exactly what to do if you grow it in a container in a cold climate. Here is a great article on the subject: //www.starkbros.com/growing-guide/article/fruit-trees-in-containers-pt1
Can you eat pomegranates from a dwarf tree?

BEST ANSWER: You can eat pomegranates from any size tree. The fruits from a dwarf tree are about gold-ball size vs. the fruits on a standard pomegranate, which are more the size of a softball, 3-5'.
In Zone 7A, how does one provide winter protection for this plant?
Jack S on Jan 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: When you know the first fall frost is coming, give your tree a good drink of water (unless it's been raining a lot) and mulch it with 3-4 of good organic mulch (straw, bark, etc. When the tree is young and if it has exposure to north winds, make a wind barrier out of a couple of stakes and a piece of burlap (like a mini-fence) to protect it from wind burn.
If you had a choice to buy only one pomegranate would you pick the ???wonderful??? or the ???dwarf cultivar? I live in Denver so itll be outside in a big planter in summer and will overwinter in the garage or house, so considering size, hardiness and fruit production, which would be the best choice? Thanks in advance.
Mari on Feb 18, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I live about 30 miles SW of Fort Worth. I had both and they were planted outside neither made it through the winter. If I had them in a planter I would go with the Dwarf Red Pomegranate. Ours performed well its first and only summer.

Takako V on Apr 27, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Last year was my second year to have two dwarfs. They did not make the first summer. but but were loaded the end of my 2nd.

I have the dwarf red pomegranate growing in a container. I reside in zone 6. Should I store this in my dark cold root cellar with my figs? Or does it want to over winter as a house plant?

Zone 7A, I plan to plant it outside. What is the best time for this ?
dinsap on Dec 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Because weather and soil conditions vary so much from year to year and even within your zone, it's best to think of your planting time as a range of favorable conditions instead of an exact time.

You can plant new plants and trees: 1) when the ground is not frozen, 2) when daytime temperatures are above freezing (32??F) and below 90??F, and 3) when extreme weather (blizzard, hail, torrential rain, etc.) is not in the forecast. Be sure to keep plants watered if you're transplanting in warm and/or dry weather.

I have clay soil what fruit trees do well in clay soil?
Martha H on Mar 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, fruit trees do not do well in clay soil, as a rule. You'll need to amend it if you want to grow fruit. Coco fiber (coir) works wonders for clay, as does creating a little hill when you plant, and elevating the roots above ground level so water can drain away.You can find coir fiber here: //www.starkbros.com/products/tools-and-supplies/soil-additives/coco-fiber-planting-medium

Over 1 foot of growth in a month
Tree was received packaged with green leaves. It went dormant when replanted. Within 45 days the tree started sprouting and has now put on over a foot of new growth. As I am in New England the tree is growing in a container. I will update at year end and next year to comment on fruit.

Not suitable for north New Jersey
I bought this plant last May. Even listed compatible for my zone and wrapped in burlap for the winter the plant didn't make. Dead now

Love this plant!
I ordered this not knowing what to expect, and in less than one season it has become one of my favorites. I planted it along the walkway to my door, and every day I enjoy the brilliant orange flowers and feathery foliage. It already has a small fruit growing, can't wait until it matures. I'm already scoping out a spot for the next one.

Great little tree.
I have it planted in a pot that I bring in for our Chicago winter. Its blooming again this year, not complaining. Not sure if I screwed up its natural cycle by bring it in too late in the fall.
