Pomegranates are not grafted onto any rootstock, so in areas where it gets cold enough to freeze, the tops of the plants may die back, they still come back and produce the same fruit.
Pomegranate shrubs are one of the easier fruits to work with since they are not usually affected by pests or diseases. Ideal for a hot, sunny spot outdoors
