The pomegranate is a fruit-bearing deciduous shrub in the family Lythraceae, subfamily Punicoideae, that grows between 5 and 10 m tall. The pomegranate originated in the region extending from Iran to northern India and has been cultivated since ancient times throughout the Mediterranean region.
During the growing season, feed each pomegranate tree with compost tea or a balanced 10-10-10 liquid fertilizer every two weeks. Water every seven to 10 days, applying 1 inch of water to each tree. Prune the pomegranate in early spring.
