Description

Surh-Anor Pomegranate Trees are a slightly larger tree compared to some Pomegranates, and the trees reach heights of 10 to 12 feet, with widths of 6 to 8 feet. They are drought tolerant, grow at a moderate pace, and do best in full sun. Surh-Anor Pomegranate Trees are easy to grow and can be maintained as a small tree, or an ornamental, fruit-producing shrub.

Surh-Anor Pomegranate Trees can be grown in a wide range of soil types, as long as the soil has adequate organic matter and drains well. They are cold tolerant down to freezing temperatures, and can also withstand dry conditions and even drought. However, properly fed and watered trees will always produce more and better fruit.

Pomegranate Tree Care

Mature, healthy Surh-Anor Pomegranate Trees can produce hundreds of fruit each year. Since the trees only get about 10 feet tall and 8 feet wide, you can place them in smaller gardens and even in large pots. Be sure to select a location that gives the tree enough room to expand as it grows. The branches can be trimmed once per year in late winter once all fruit has been picked. They can be planted in ground in USDA zones 7 to 11 and in pots in lower zones.

Surh-Anor Pomegranate Trees do best when they get 5 or more hours of direct sunlight each day. Trees that are in partial shade, or receive less direct sunlight will still grow, but more sunlight means more blooms, and therefore more fruit. Surh-Anor Pomegranate Trees are resistant to many insects and pests, and the hardness of the outer fruit makes them very resistant to most birds.

Fruit & Harvesting

Surh-Anor Pomegranates bloom in spring and the fruit is ready to begin harvesting in September through the end of the year. Surh-Anor Pomegranates mature to a pale yellow-pink color. You can pick them as soon as you start to see pink blush on the skins. Do a taste test, and wait another week if the seeds are not yet sweet.

Surh-Anor Pomegranates have clear arils, or seed jewels, and very sweet juice. This sturdy self-pollinator produces blooms in spring, and the fruit ripens in the late summer through winter, from August to December. For this reason Pomegranates have become a popular food item and table decoration around the holidays.

Advice

Plant your Surh-Anor Pomegranate Tree in the spring after all chance of frost has passed. The small size of a mature Surh-Anor Pomegranate Tree allows you to fit one in a smaller location than many other fruit trees. However, remember that Surh-Anor Pomegranate Trees benefit from the most sunlight they can get.

Surh-Anor Pomegranate Trees that are grown in containers must have well-draining soil and holes to allow the water to fully drain away. These trees will not tolerate soggy roots, and container grown trees are especially susceptible to root rot when they are not drained fully between watering.

FAQs

Are Pomegranates really that good for you?

Pomegranates are high in potassium, fiber, vitamin C, and other antioxidants and minerals. They have a high ratio of nutrition to calories, so they are considered to be one of the most nutritious foods available.

How do you eat a Pomegranate?

Cut your ripe Surh-Anor Pomegranate in half, and then into quarters. Scoop out the arils (jewel-like seeds covered in juicy pulp) and discard the white membranes. You can eat the seeds fresh, juice them, or add them to salads or other treats.

Where does the name Pomegranate come from?

The name Pomegranate is French, and means “Seeded Apple.”

How long can I store a ripe Surh-Anor Pomegranate?

A ripe Surh-Anor Pomegranate can be stored in a cool dry place and remain edible for about two weeks. Refrigerated Pomegranates in sealed plastic bags or containers can be kept for as long as two months. Frozen Surh-Anor Pomegranate juice will last up to six months.
