Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

This attractive, self-fertile, multi-stemmed tree bears glossy foliage and vibrant, funnel shaped, orange flowers over a long period throughout summer. The leathery-skinned, brown fruits form at the base of the flowers and ripen during mild autumns for harvesting in October and November. Enjoy the sweet-sharp fleshy fruits in desserts and savoury dishes or use the pomegranate 'kernels' to make a fragrant juice.


Often associated with much warmer climates, Pomegranate 'Provence' is surprisingly hardy in the UK, tolerating temperatures down to -15C (5F) when grown in a sheltered position. In particularly cold areas it can be grown in a large container and moved to a warmer position during the winter months. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 1.5m (5').

Fruit and nut trees do not suffer weed competition well, so keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the tree. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Water Pomegranate trees well during particularly dry periods.

Pomegranate is best grown as a multi-stemmed tree on a short stem. Prune Pomegranate plants from spring to summer. Select 3 or 4 low branches to form the main framework of the tree, and remove any misplaced, crowded and damaged branches. During the first 3 years shorten the main branches by a third of the previous season's growth to develop a well branched plant. Thereafter pruning should be kept to a minimum as over pruning can reduce fruiting. Pomegranates produce suckers and these should be removed from the base of the plant.

Harvest Pomegranate fruits using secateurs when the crown at the base of the fruit has become curled and brown.

Grow Pomegranate trees in rich fertile, well drained soil. For the best chances of fruiting choose a warm, sheltered position in full sun. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil to improve drainage and soil fertility. Plant Pomegranates at the same soil level as they were growing at the nursery.

Estimated time to cropping once planted: 3 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 6 years.
