I planted some pomegranate seeds 1 - 2 years ago and the plants are growing beautifully, but no blooms yet. Can you grow pomegranates from the seeds of those bought at the grocery store? Are the fruit from the "miniature" ornamental pomegranates edible? I also have one of those plants and the year I fertilized them the fruit were pretty big!

Just found out - Went to our local Adopt-a -Tree program in Dade County, Florida, and they had some people there from the Rare Fruit Council and I was able to ask them - the gentleman who helped me said they take 5 years to produce fruit, so I guess I will have to wait a little longerl... Thank you!

Dea, just wanted you to know that I tried the water-release trick on the seeds last night, and it sure saves a lot of mess! Thanks!

Just read this article and greatly enjoyed it, thanks. I planted a pom tree this summer and am looking forward to enjoying fruit. The water release trick is something I will definitely try.

I wonder if black poms are readily available since the gentleman from belgium posted. I would love to grow one.

I too have been curious about that - I've not come across them. Yes, the water trick works :)
