The Afganski Russian pomegranate produces sweet, slightly tart fruit. It fruits consistently, giving you an ample supply to eat during the season. The Afganski performs especially well in the high humidity of the Southeastern U.S.
Average mature height: 12-15 feet
Container growing? Yes. Prune pomegranates as a bush with 3 to 6 main trunks and top them off to keep the height manageable.
Fertilizer: Nitrogen/Phosphorus/Potassium in a 3/1/6 ratio
Light: Full sun is ideal, but pomegranates will be fine in mostly sunny conditions too.
Soil: Pomegranates adapt to most well-drained soils. They can grow in nutritionally poor soil but they do best in loamy soil.
Zones: Perennial 6-10 (Pomegranates love warm, tropical climates but can take some cold without getting severely injured.)
Size. These ship in plug size pots when they are 2.5-6 inches tall so they can grow to maturity under your green thumb.
