  • Fall Pomegranate Trades

    Hey everyone,

    Who has poms and wants to set up a trade for the Fall? I’m interested in anything that’s cold hardy (or untested in the cold), and especially backyard heirlooms. I’m particularly interested in Sumbar. I’ve got a bunch of varieties, but only a small number that’ll be big enough to trade cuttings:

    -Eight Ball (Black Variety)
    -Melgar (Black with clear arils)
    Toyosho
    -A couple of local white and pink colored heirlooms from upstate SC
    -Salavatski
    -A couple other odds and ends

    I can attest to the awesomeness of Salavatiski - we saw about 2F at my house this past winter, and likely -5 or below in the area where my poms are growing - a couple of my salavatskis took the cold without any damage whatsoever.

    Hi, Josh. I'm collecting poms that produce soft seeded arils. Because we have a scant 3-4 frosty nights, I have no idea whether or not any of the poms I have are cold hardy. Do any of the poms you grow in 7b have soft seeded arils?

      That's Kazake, right?

      Possibly Afganski?

    I have 15 unknown seedlings. All I know is they were organic sweet red seeds. I’m looking for fig trees or cuttings. Pm me if interested. Thanks!

      Unsure. Bought from Willis Brothers. I have others but too small to trade. If you want to sell Eight Ball will be glad to buy. Thanks

          I have crimson sky, in pots, from cuttings last winter. They're about 2 ft tall. Said to be hardy to zone 7, possibly Z6.
          Currently living in 9b, planting in 6b.

          Wish list: Anything hardy in 6B.

            A little off topic - but can anyone here share their methods on rooting pomegranate cuttings? I have a wonderful pom, and I've tried rooting them the same I do with figs and have not been able to root a single one.

              I've rooted pom cuttings like my fig cuttings. At first, I put them in a bin with moistened coir and waited until roots appeared before potting. My latest batch, I just direct potted, and that seems to work just as well with less work. Pom cuttings are usually easy to root.

                Hi Johnny, do you wrap the stem like we do figs to keep them from drying out?

                Bren55, No wrapping. I just stuck the cuttings in a container with some media and let them be under my grow lights over the winter. Almost all of them showed signs of life at some point. I think I only had 1-2 out of a dozen just outright die. My trouble came mostly in keeping them alive through the summer. I killed about 4 rooted cuttings this season. If the heat didn't cook them, they got drowned in the torrential rains.

              Will Salavatski survive in 6a?

                I'm going to find out if it's reliable in 6B, have it and an Afganski newly planted outside near some masonry. I've heard it is one of the most, if not THE most hardy of the Russian/Iranian poms. We'll see!

                Great! I am interested in the one that is tasty and survives in 6A/6B

              I will have Parfianka cuttings. It is a superb soft seeded variety. Can trade for Eight Ball and Salavatski sometimes in February

              Sounds good on the parfianka for 8-ball trade, greenfig. Also, not this year but likely next year I’ll have a cultivar that’s hardier than Salavatski available.

                Wonderful! Please get in touch in February.
                What is that hardy variety name, if you can tell us?
