The pomegranate is a fruit-bearing deciduous shrub in the family Lythraceae, subfamily Punicoideae.
This beauty can reach 15' -30' tall.
The Pom can either be left to grow naturally as a shrub, or pruned and grown as a small tree.
Pomegranates need plenty of sun to thrive and produce fruit.
Look for an area that gets at least 6 hours of direct sun.
Good drainage is crucial for pomegranate trees, but they tolerate almost any soil, even poor or alkaline ones.
Plant pomegranates in a hole as deep as the nursery pot and twice as wide.
The blooming period is relatively long for pomegranates (April–June), but later-blooming flowers may not have time to develop into fully ripe fruit.
Fruit ripening takes around six to seven months for most pomegranates, so flowers blooming in April and May should be ready between Halloween and Thanksgiving!
In Greek mythology, the pomegranate was known as the 'fruit of the dead' as it was said to have arisen from the blood of Adonis.
Hades, God of the underworld, used pomegranate seeds to trick Persephone into returning to the underworld for a few months of every year.
