Pomegranate - Elcite

Many pomegranates are thornless. This one is emphatically not. Soft side-branches in summer turn to sharp tapering 10 cm thorns in winter while deciduous, then soften again in Spring. Don't plant this variety anywhere where you brush past! | Mark O'connor - Canberra , ACT 29-Nov-2013

Purchased on the 5th of December as an older plant, not sure how old, waiting for a bigger pot at the moment.

Potted up into its new pot early January 2010. Looking good, hoping for flowers next season..

28 Feb - my pomegranate is flowering... yay.. I am very happy as I thought not long ago that it was sick as some leaves had yellow spots. But I was reassured by members of this forum that the spots looked more like a deficiency rather than a disease. You guys must have been right... hooray

Have trained this to grow on a trellis - keeps the areas between trees easier for mowing - main branches growing north and south
