Special Attributes

Discovered in Florida in 1896, 'Wonderful' is still the most popular pomegranate on the market. It is known for cold-tolerance and production of high-quality fruit. The seeds are small and juicy, perfect for juicing or eating. Wonderful produces eye-catching bright reddish-orange flowers in spring that develop into red fruits in September and October. You can grow this one naturally as a large bush or remove lower branches to form an attractive small tree. Wonderful pomegranate trees are self-fertilizing, so one tree is all you need to produce these mouth-watering fruits!




Landscape & Garden Uses

The Wonderful Pomegranate can be grown as a large shrub or lower branches can be removed to form a small tree. Its attractive glossy green foliage and vibrant orange flowers makes it a fine edible addition to the ornamental landscape. Growing 10 to 12 feet tall and wide, it is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings or as a natural hedge.

Spacing:  8' for solid hedge;  18 feet or more for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

When planted right, and in the right spot Pomegranates are very easy to grow. 


Soil Preferences

Though pomegranates will tolerate most any type of average garden soil, as with most other fruit trees, Pomegranate grow best in a deep, loam soil rich in organic matter. Constantly soggy or wet soil can be problematic. So make sure to plant in a well-drained site. Brief periods of flooding won't cause problems provided the soil is well-draining. If you live in an area that can experience long rainy periods it's best to plant Pomegranate on raised beds or mounds. The soil pH tolerance for Pomegranate is wide as well. They will grow in moderately acid to moderately alkaline soils that range from 4.5 to 8.2 on the pH scale, so pH usually isn't a concern. 


Sun Preferences

The best and most pomegranate fruits will be produced when plants are growing in full sun. However, pomegranate plants that receive a little shade during the hottest part of summer days will still produce good crops.

Note:  In zones north of 8a, we suggest providing some protection in the form of a thick layer of mulch or wrapping plants with a protective cover during abnormally cold periods of winter, when temperatures drop below 10 degrees F. Planting your Wonderful Pomegranate on the south or east side of a structure will provide protection against west and north winter winds.
