Position

Plant your pomegranate in full sun for maximum flower and fruit production. They do not like wind, so plant them in a protected spot.

Size

Pomegranates typically grow between 3 and 6 mts in height and have a wide canopy spread.

Soil Type

These trees are not fussy about the soil type they grow in. Add a layer of organic mulch to get great nutrients into the soil.

Watering

Once a tree is established, it can tolerate drought and heat very well. Even with no water, the tree will grow, but it won’t produce good quality fruit in any significant quantity. Water it about twice a month if there has been no rain. Keeping the soil moist during fruiting will prevent the fruits from splitting.

Fertilising

Fertilise your plant from April to July. Nitrogen is essential for your pomegranate trees if they are not bearing fruit. Well-aged horse manure works wonders. Or visit your local nursery for a recommended fertiliser.

Pruning

Pomegranates do best when they are pruned lightly after about two years.

Harvesting

The fruit of the pomegranate tree takes a long time to ripen (about 5 to 7 months), and most will ripen from about April. During hot and dry conditions, pomegranates can ripen earlier and faster, so the fruit should be picked just before fully mature as they crack if they are allowed to become overripe.

They are ready to be picked if they have good colour. When tapped, they sound metallic.

Use a scissors to cut the fruit off rather than tugging at them and possibly tearing the branches.
