Pomegranate, botanical name Punica granatum, is a small, fruit-bearing deciduous with the super healthy fruit typically in season from September to February. From Iran and northern India, these are also attractive, small landscape trees with shiny foliage, and they can produce showy pomegranate flowers that attract hummingbirds and add wonderful color to any landscape. Their smaller size makes them ideal for small spaces!
The Pomegranate tree is also one of the easiest fruit trees to grow and thrives in our local climate. Since they are well-suited for arid environments, once established, they have low to moderate water requirements and are drought tolerant. Plant them in a spot with full sun exposure, and they can flourish. Once they have been established in your landscape, we like to apply Moon Dust fertilizer so it can enhance fruit quality and the overall health of the plant.
We like to plant a Pomegranate tree in any backyard garden or a front yard as an accent. These are an attractive small tree no matter where you choose to plant one! Of course, the added benefit of the healthy fruit helps to make these an attractive option for our area. Homegrown fruit always tastes better!
