The Dwarf Pomegranate is a fast-growing, evergreen plant. The tree features glossy leaves on stalks that grow to a height of 2 feet (61 cm) tall. The blooms are tubular, red flowers. Once the flowers die off, the fruit begins to grow.
Provide between six to eight hours of sunlight per day. Exposure from a South or West-facing window for optimal fruit development.
Keep the soil moist, but not soggy, for optimal plant health and fruit production. Water the plant when the top 1 to 2 inches of soil feels dry.
Grow your Dwarf Pomegranate tree in well-draining soil. Use regular potting soil amended with peat or perlite to improve drainage. A proper soil mixture allows the water to absorb into the soil quickly and not pool on the surface.
Pomegranate trees prefer warm temperatures, but low humidity. Ideal temperatures during the growing season are above 80 Fahrenheit (26.6 Celsius).
Most trees are ready to produce fruit when they are two to three years old. To recognize when a Pomegranate is ripe, look for the fruit’s skin to have a matte appearance, not glossy. The shape of the fruit should be more hexagonal instead of round.
The easiest method to propagate a Pomegranate tree is from cuttings. Snip a 10-inch stem from a mature tree during the winter. Coat the cut end of the stem into a rooting hormone.
