Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

Sweet Pomegranate is self-fertile, but the fruit crop will be larger if the tree is planted with a second tree.

Description

Punica granatum 'Sweet'

Sweet pomegranate has a number of different origins. This selection was from Chico state and introduced by LE Cooke Company. This selection is a medium to large tan to pink skinned selection with light pink aril. This is a variety that has little to no acid, so the flavor is sweeter than other pomegranates. The juice is clear and non-staining. A smaller growing plant to about 12 feet if left unpruned. Tree bears heavily, even when young. This is another selection that is the perfect container plant.

Planting & Care
Pomegranates grow well in a wide range of soils. They require good drainage and will not tolerate standing water around their roots. If poor drainage is suspected mound the plant of 12 inches above the lay of the land. Plant in full sun favoring the morning sun in a location that gets at least 8 hours of direct sun a day. Water regularly the first season and less frequently until fully established. Drought tolerant when fully established. Grow as a bush or prune into a tree form. Excellent landscape plant with a quite stunning display of flowers in the early spring. Watch for scale or Leaf footed stinkbug, very few other problems
