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
Is this ornamental?
Vickie C on May 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Oh no, it produces full-size edible pomegranates. Great for small spaces.
Can you eat pomegranates from a dwarf tree?
Marie G on Jan 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You can eat pomegranates from any size tree. The fruit from a dwarf tree is the same size as it would be from a larger tree.

James A on Apr 12, 2019

When searching for dwarf red pomegranate most results come back with some more akin to a bush rather than a proper tree, is this product like that or is it more tree like?
Tyler J on Apr 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This is definitely a tree which grows to be 8-10' tall unless you prune it to be smaller.
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
Will this do well in a container? If so, any special care for successful container growing?
Viva K on Mar 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You can grow almost anything in a container! This excellent article will answer your questions and provide good advice. Please see "Growing Fruit Trees in Containers" //www.starkbros.com/growing-guide/article/fruit-trees-in-containers-pt1
What kind of soil is best?
Elizabeth B S on Feb 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Most all fruit trees are partial to loamy soil. Pomegranates like a soil pH of 5.5 to 6.5, slightly on the acidic side.
Can we plant this pomegranate plant in ground, my zone 8A?
SUMIT Y on Jan 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes. This tree is zoned for 7 through 10, and your area falls in that range.
What type of fertilizer do i use?
lopez r on Oct 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We highly recommend Tre-Pep for young trees. It gets the root system off to a strong start and contains micronutrients not found in other formulas. Here is a link to the product page: //www.starkbros.com/products/tools-and-supplies/soil-additives/stark-tre-pep-fertilizer/
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.
Is this tree deciduous or evergreen?
Glendarie on Jan 22, 2018

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.

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.

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.

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
