A single pomegranate tree yields around 100 to 150 fruits, so if you grow 2 to 4 in your garden by following this guide then you will be able to get lot of pomegranates.
Hot dry summer and mild cold winters, temperature ranging from 38 to 5 degrees Celsius is ideal for growth of pomegranate tree.
Pomegranate can grow well in deep loamy to sandy and even clayey soil with pH 5.5 to 7.2. Prepare potting mix with 50% garden soil + 40% organic compost + 10% river sand.
You can easily propagate pomegranate from hardwood or softwood cuttings in spring or rainy season.
Daily bright direct sunlight for at least 6 to 8 hours is essential for good growth and fruiting in the plant.
Pomegranate tree hates waterlogged soil, hence avoid overwatering. Apply water only when top layer of soil seems dry.
Avoid over fertilizing this plant as it can result in poor yield. Fertilize 2 to 3 times in year from February with 3 handful of dung manure and onion peel fertilizer.
Prune out suckers, old and diseased branches just before new leafs start growing during early spring season to promote good growth and fruiting in the plant.
