My family and I are known as the Pomegranate People because we've been growing them ever since I was a little one. In fact, the first thing I ever grew on my own was a pomegranate tree at age four. Now these fruits are more popular than ever, and buying the bottled juice at the shops isn't very cheap. This is one method of juicing pomegranates at home, then planting the leftover seeds in order to grow more of the fruit.
The best time to start the growing process is at the end of winter to the beginning of spring.
A while back you mentioned playing the protégé and gleaning lots of useful information from me. Well, Friend Girl, there's been a turnabout.
Years ago, I bought a Wonderful pomegranate and kept and planted the seed. I had lots of pomegranate bushes. I could have used them for a hedge row, as I understand is often done in California.
Pomegranates do well in North Carolina, too. I remember being enamored by a lovely Lumbee Indian. When I went to see her, I would ask her mother, 'I've forgotten. Tell me again the name of those bushes growing in your front yard'.
And of course, I chuckled (under my breath) when she replied, 'They're pump grannies'.
I kept my bushes for at least ten years. They grew well and always looked nice and healthy. Just this last year, I dug them all up and threw them away. Not one bore fruit in all those years. I pray thee, do tell, what did I do wrong?
Yours is a beautiful bush, tree, no less. Yes!
Mum n I are shocked they did not give fruit! Did they give little flowers? Nothing? Usually within two years they bloom like mad.
About 3 feet and never a bloom. Did you fertilize yours a lot?
No fertilization. We water ours very little about once every 10 days. Needs direct warmth!
