Pomegranate is a simple fruit to grow. Its small size (with regular pruning usually reaches three meters), makes it suitable for urban gardens.

Although it withstands drought well, for a healthier growth we shall water it frequently.
Pomegranate is currently grown in Spain and in various countries in Eastern Europe and South America. However, it is believed that its origin is between the Balkans and the Himalayas, from where it was imported thousands of years ago.
It can suffer from fungi or putrefaction of the fruit for a water excess and/or moisture, therefore it is very important to provide it with a good drainage system.
