Pomegranate

Introduction

Pomegranate (Punica granatum) is a commercially-important fruit that can be consumed fresh or processed into juice and jam. Pomegranate trees take 3 years to begin fruiting, but can then produce fruit for up to 30 years.

Care

Care

Prior to planting, thorough plowing and removal of debris is recommended to bring the soil to fine texture and allow proper aeration in the soil. Air-layering is the dominant form of propagation. Multi-stem training is recommended for pomegranate training to avoid the spread of disease. Drip irrigation is best for pomegranate cultivation, delivering optimally 20cm per year. Fruits are ready for harvest about 120-130 days after the fruiting stage begins. Pomegranates can be intercropped with pulses and vegetables.

Soil

Pomegranate is tolerant of a wide range of soil types, but prefers heavy loamy soils that are deep and drain well. Excessive soil moisture can lower yield and fruit quality.

Climate

Pomegranate can grow in both temperate, semi-arid, and sub-tropical areas. It generally favors a sunny, warm, dry climate for optimal growth, especially during fruiting. It also needs cold and dry weather during the winter.
