Pomegranate is a sweet & juicy fruit. This tree can easily grow in a container and with minimum care, anybody can expect fruit from this plant. I planned to grow this tree. But as we ate many pomegranate fruits every afternoon on our rooftop in December – January months in 2018-2019. We used to keep all wastage in a broken clay pot. So after a few weeks, we noticed three seedlings in those pots. I allowed those pomegranate seedlings to grow and after 2-3 months I transplanted all those plants in separate pots. From this year, surprisingly all those trees started producing fruits. Throughout August, there were plenty of beautiful red coloured flowers on my pomegranate trees. Now I saw there are a few fruits on those trees. So this month pomegranate trees are the performer of the month of August 2020.
Though pomegranate tree produces fruit twice or thrice a year. But winter is the actual season for this tree. During winter, fruits are more colorful, juicy & sweet. So the performance of my pomegranate trees during this month is really awesome.
YES!!!! My container grown 1.5 years old pomegranate trees are producing multiple fruits
The taste of these fruits is good as I already harvested two fruits 2 months back.
Without any special care, these trees are producing fruits. I have noticed many experts said, we need to apply this that. Apply this chemical fertilizer in that quantity along with another fertilizer. It’s like I am researching on that. I did not follow any rules. I just added compost fertilizer when I planted these trees. After that whenever I purchased readymade balanced fertilizer from the market I applied that. Occasionally, I applied a handful bone dust too after every 2-3 months. So you can understand that I did not follow any rule for caring for my trees. But still, I achieved a great result.
I hope that within three months I can harvest a few homegrown pomegranates and make awesome fruit chatni, mixed fruit raita, fruit pancakes, fruit drinks & juices etc. I will definitely share my experience at that time too.
From August 2020 onward, I will share a performer of the month post about one of my best performing vegetable or fruit plants.
