Hey Victor,

A guy from India told me that evergreen pomegranate varieties are only cold hardy down to 25f. I am going to protect mine in the winter just in case. How cold has it been at your house?

Hi, Eddy: I believe I read one of Victor's posts where he explained that his tree had been pretty well pruned now so he is waiting for it to get some growth. I just thought I would answer so that you don't have to wait and not receive an answer.

Best,
Meg

Hi Victor I think your black pomegranate is gorgeous. I'd love to grow something like it myself - but I'm in Australia so I can't bring cuttings in even once the tree recovers enough to provide some more, because quarantine. I could import seeds though. Can I buy some of the seeds from you, next time your tree fruits? I know they won't come true to type, but they'll have the genetics so I should be able to grow a bunch of them out and select for something good. Pomegranate seeds don't need any special treatment, just rinse well & dry, so it should be pretty easy.

PM me with postage + cost for the seeds please? Thank you If I manage to get a good selection from the seedlings I'll name it after you.

Hello Victor and others;

I have read with enthusiam through this forum about black pomegranate.

EcoRUKELA is a sustainable farm currently being developed in Cuba.
We have limited resources, as you can expect, and are constantly looking for collaboration and support to increase our fruit trees varieties.

I don't think we have this variety of pomegranate in Cuba...
Do you think is it possible to obtain some cuttings from your plant? It will be magic, if we can have this here!!

Let us know if this is possible, so we can arrange with someone in Miami, Florida for shipping.
We will be more than happy to pay por any shipment costs to Miami.

Thank you very much for all these winderful comments!!.... they are very valuable!
