If you’re looking for a large-fruited pomegranate that can be grown in a container, then ‘Big Red’ is for you. The fruit quality is very good and it can reach the size of store bought pomegranates. The fruit has a leathery, deep-red outer rind with juicy red pomegranate seeds inside. The fruit ripens in late fall before plants go dormant for the season. Selected for its low chill dormancy requirements, ‘Big Red’ will flower as far south as central Florida and is hardy to zone 8 in the north. The chill requirements can easily be reached by leaving the potted plant outside until late fall. The dormant plant can be stored in cold buildings without light as long as the temperatures are not below freezing and not above 40° F. In the spring, bring plants outside as soon as the weather warms up.

We love the pomegranate! Review by Toffle
How do you rate this product?
I got this and a few others for my mom last spring. She was so impressed with "the quality of the plants and the careful way they were packaged and the fact that they haven't died yet." The pomegranate is making flowers now and she's loving watching it. I'm surprised with how beautiful the plant is; the stems arch in a really graceful way and it's very pretty inside for the autumn.
