Question & Answer
I planted my pomegranate in Winter. It seemed to survive our frosts and the stem began to shoot leaves in Spring, but then they died off and leaves and stems began to shoot from lower down toward the roots of the plant. Is this a grafted plant and will it still fruit & flower from these new lower limbs? From: CASTLEMAINE VIC
all the pomegranates are cutting grown so your tree will be a Ben Hur no matter where it shoots from. Cut the dead wood back to the healthy new growth.
Hi, could you pls recommend the best type of pomegranate for our coastal Sydney garden? We would like to purchase 6. From: Vaucluse NSW
All varieties of pomegranate would be suitable for the Sydney climate. The varieties differ in size, taste and how they crop. You can read each of their descriptions on this page http://www.daleysfruit.com.au/fruit%20pages/pomegranate.htm Since you can often buy the wonderful variety in shops how about you try the other varieties. I would get 2 of the: #PomegranateElche2759 2 of the: #PomegranateRosavaya901 1 of the: #PomegranateBen2683 and 1 of the: #PomegranateAzerbaijani2682
