Apparently, very drought tolerant.
Liz M on May 24, 2019
My wife, Evelina, was born and raised in Armenia and grew up eating pomegranates. I had never even known how to approach eating the delicious seeds of this exotic fruit. Now, when they're in season, I buy as many as we can afford to eat. This year, as the season was ending, we decided to plant our own tree in the yard, so we could simply walk outside for a treat and not pay so much at the market!

It is a gift for a family friend who wants a pom tree in his yard. So as a birthday present for him, I purchased this tree. My neighbor has one like it and it is a prolific tree; I'm hopeful that this one will be as generous with her fruit and as pretty.

What winter protection is needed for the Wonderful Pomegranite in zone 7A?
Solomon M on May 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Here is a very good article about protecting/winterizing your fruit trees, no matter which zone you're in: //
How can I keep the height below 10 feet? Zone 6B, going to grow in high tunnel.
Sadie on Apr 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Pruning will probably be your best bet maintaining the overall height. If you are also growing the pomegranate in a large container, this may help keep the mature height smaller than it would be if planted in the ground.
I am in 6A and would need to grow this in a container. What size container would you recommend?
Mary L on Oct 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can start with a 10" container, and when the roots begin to reach the edge of the pot, it's time to "pot up". You can keep potting up in 4" increments until you reach a container size of 20' or 24", depending upon how large you want the tree to get, then air-prune the roots every few years to keep the tree that size without becoming rootbound and also to re-invigorate it.
can i get this as a dwarf?
miss p on May 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This tree is naturally very close to a dwarf size, 10 - 15' tall. You can easily prune it to keep it smaller than that.
How do you grow pomagranet in a pot?
Virginia M H on May 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Size of the pot and pot preparation are the most important step. Make sure that is large enough for your plant to grow in for a few years limits the amount of replanting. The pot requires drainage holes in the bottom of the pot. You must drill 1/2 inch holes in the bottom of the pot. If you skip this step excess water will not drain properly and kill your plants. In addition you need 2 to 4 inches of rocks in the bottom of the pot also for drainage. Lastly use a good quality potting soil. All dirt is not the same. If you do these things growing in a pott is actually easy.
I am in zone 7A and the plant from you now is about a 1 foot tall. I am concerned about the winter survival and left the plant in the pot. Can it be brought inside for the winter months? I did read the winterization article but really not sure how a small plant like this will do in the winter outside.
Ashik P on Aug 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Please plant your tree in the ground as soon as you can. The pot in which it was shipped is not meant to be a permanent home. By planting now, you'll give the roots a chance to become established, then you can mulch with 3-4 inches of straw or bark, protect it from any north wind, and the tree will be fine.
Can I keep this in my garage over winter (zone 6a), or do I need to bring it inside?
Nathan M on Mar 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We're presuming it's in a container. You can wrap it in an old blanket and keep it in an unheated garage or shed, no need to bring it indoors. It needs to go dormant to complete the fruiting cycle.
Hi, I plan to keep this Pomegranate as a container plant. What kind of soil is best?
Tanya Naina J on Aug 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I would use a high quality potting mix with something mixed in to avoid too much compaction over time (round clay balls for hydroponics work well for this. Line the bottom of container well with rocks to encourage good drainage. Add guano, worm castings, anything to encourage healthy soil (in proper quantities.) Mulch top of soil with layer of clay pellets or rocks or wood chips to help hold onto moisture and improve soil health. Add earth worms if growing organically and do not over water or water too fast as this will wash away nutrients and compact potting soil.
Can I plant the pomegranate in the ground?
Shannon S on Mar 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It depends where you live -- it's listed as hardy to Zone 7, you'll have to check a zone map to see your hardiness zone. In colder areas it makes a nice patio tree, and you can easily keep it over the winter in a protected spot like a garage or basement. Since it loses its leaves, it doesn't need any light while it's dormant for the winter.
If I order pomegranate this fall but want to plant outdoor in spring, what I need to do to keep the plant survive?
William on Oct 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi William, Since this item ships in our EZ Start potted container you can keep this tree in the container over winter. Just keep in a cool dark place that does not freeze. You can also re-pot it if you'd like. If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us, remember that we're here for you. Have a great day!
Hello. What are good pollinators for the wonderful pomegranate?
Peter B on May 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The best cross-pollinators for a pomegranate tree are bees, butterflies and birds; pomegranates operate a little differently than most other self-pollinating fruit trees.
Does this come shaped like a tree or a bush?
Maria G on May 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It is one small twig in a small pot but it quickly grows into a bush. We have to keep ours in a large pot indoors during the winter.
Which varieties of pomegranate are thornless?
Wendy D on Jun 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No thorns on my Wonderful Pomegranate!
are these trees from seeds?
frank g on Apr 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, they are grafted. This is a hybrid and would not produce a true-to-parent "Wonderful Pomegrate" if grown from seed.
I have a spot for this plant near sea water shore line. Is it salt tolerated?
yizhi l on Oct 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Pomegranate trees are known to be somewhat tolerant of salt air, so as long as you are in the area of growing zones 7-10, the tree should do fine if properly cared for.
Is the wonderful pomegranite plant that you sell grown from seed or is it a cutting?
Sammy on May 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This tree is grown from cuttings to ensure that it maintains the characteristics expected from the 'Wonderful' pomegranate variety.
is the Wonderful Pomegranate a actual tree or a vine?
Johnnie S on May 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is a tree.

Nice but small
Honestly, I should have read the description a bit more. These are definitely small young plants. I am in zone 7a so ordered the smallest 10" trunk guard for winterizing per instruction. I am laughing as I know they will not fit on this as the plant is likely only 10" total (which is what they said so shame on me). It is a very narrow stem...maybe a 1/4" at best.

Arrives small, well packed, growing nicely
I ordered this in mid-may and mine was about 6-8 inches, packed well with enough dirt to cover the roots. I had to add more for the pot I'm starting it out in. I'm in Virginia, and while I could probably leave this out this coming winter, I plan to bring it in to see how it does.
I was worried at first because the "tree" is small and had a few leaves on it. My cats got ahold of it that night as I had left it in the sink in the pot so I could plant it the next day. They ate all of the leaves, mowed the poor little thing right down.
So I put it out on my deck regardless and it has grown 12-14 inch long branches with many small leaves, so I'm quite pleased that it survived the cats. I'm getting the hang of watering the thing, trying not to over water. I'm a little concerned because the trunk itself is quite thin and small and I'm worried that the branches, which are much longer and hang over, will break it. But it seems to be doing well. I'm very pleased with the purchase considering that the price isn't that much for it. And I was very happy with the order and shipment notifications provided by the nursery. I plan to order more items from Stark Bros later this year.

It's a really wonderful Pomegranate
This is quite honestly the most hardest and a really juicy breed of pomegranates that I have ever grown and had before. I just love ordering from this website and the support is spot on excellent every time whenever I have any questions Too.
June 30, 2017
Look great!
Just got two delivered today and both look great. Much bigger and more vibrant than I expected. I'll put these on our patio and maybe overwinter them in the garage, then put them out in the orchard in the Spring. They look too good for me to take a chance on rabbit and deer nibbling on them this young!

Fast growing
I planted the tree last spring; it came as a little twig. Now it's a year old and has 2 blossoms on it. It's 6 ft tall and I even shaped it a little so it will really be supported as a tree. I don't know how the fruit is yet, but it's very healthy and I can't wait to have my 1st bite!

Prolific Grower in North Central Arizona
The Wonderful pomegranate has exceeded my expectations. When I planted it, it was 4 inches tall and wide. It is currently in the second growing season and is now 4 feet tall and wide. It is also covered in hundreds of blossoms. I live in zone 8b at 4,000' elevation. The leaves drop in winter and the branches look like they are dead and dry. Be patient and the leaves will grow back in spring.
