[[[........Does anyone else have a Pomegranate tree? ........]]]]]
Yes, I do. I've got an Tabestani Malas Biranden, an Entek Habi, a Sirenevyi, and one that lost it's label, so I don't know what it is.
They go dormant just like a fruit tree. The leaves turn yellow and fall off and the plant sleeps all winter and wakes up with new leaves in the spring.
I don't know if they are hardy in the valley. Mine are in pots and now inside under lights because they might not take the winter temperatures here. I bought pomegranates from really cold regions of the world, so in theory, they are hardy enough to be outdoors here, but I am not taking any chances with mine.
What variety of Pomegranate do you have?
To make this poultry related, I am hoping to get enough fruit that the ducks can eat some pomegranate seeds.
