Cold hardy Afganski pomegranate rooted cuttings for sale
« on: September 28, 2023, 01:04:33 AM »
Hello, I have about 10 2 rooted cuttings of Afganski pom. Smallest size starts at 6" most are 8" or above

Hardy to at least zone 6b/7a, as seen in my NJ garden.

$10 each plus shipping ~$5 USPS ground shipping Note *I probably can't ship USPS ground to CA or too far west. Not sure if the plants will make it. I sent one plant last Monday and it's supposed to arrive today Saturday. I'll keep you updated what the purchaser tells me. But if you buy more than I'll split the shipping with you and send it priority. 

Not open to trades at the moment as I have way too many plants

Thanks :)

How do they do in the heat? 100+? Thanks, D

We've had a couple of 98 and 100 days during a heatwave this summer. Poms can take heat but this variety needs chill hours to bloom.

How big do fruits get? Seeds soft? Sweet and acid level?

Seeds are hard. I'm waiting for mine to ripen. I'd say these are medium sized, might not get bigger in my climate. Internet says they are sweet-tart, I will have to confirm that. The main appeal for me is that the plant is cold hardy in NJ

I bought this variety at Home Depot, Bonnie plants propagated it which I found interesting. Mine is still in the pot and I am curious how it compares to Ariana or parfianka?

Maybe someone can chime in, as this is the only cold hardy variety I've experimented with (along with Wonderful which is not a zone 7 pom). The Wonderful dies to the ground every winter.

If I find some room I want to try Belbek, which is early, hard seeded, and VERY cold hardy below 0f. Would increase fruit set through pollination of both. Seeds don't bother me, I chew them or swallow them whole, good fiber

Received my plant today. All was good. Don't hesitate to buy!

May I ask your technique for rooting the cuttings?

I take a bunch of semi-hard wood cuttings, score the bottom 1/2 inch or so and put them in moist cococoir. I leave some leaves at the top. The container gets put under a glass fish tank or plastic dome (big water bottle or 2 liter cut in half) and everything is away from direct sunlight. I actually put everything on a tabletop under a grey polyglazed gazebo so they dont get cooked by the sun. When there are sufficient roots, it takes a month for the first roots to show up, I pot them into individual pots.



 This could be scaled up. There are citrus cuttings in here now
