    More about Russian 26 Pomegranate...

    The original Russian 26 Pomegranate plant was found in the mid-1900's in southern Russia. It got it's name from being the 26th plant in the orchard row, which proved over time to be much more cold hardy than other species in the same orchard. This cultivar produces bright orange fruit which is considered to be among the sweetest among the species and among other fruits in general. 

    Russian 26 experiences no damage from freeze, withstanding temperatures down to 5 degrees F! It can be grown in USDA Hardiness Zones 6a through 11. 

    The plant grows to about 10 feet in height with an equal spread. It is exceptionally heat tolerant and prefers full sun for best fruit production. It is adaptable to almost any type of well-drained soil. Self-Pollinating

    I was nervous about ordering a plant that would, of course, have to be shipped, but I wanted a "cold hardy" pomegranate, so that's why I took a chance on buying from afar. I looked at pomegranate bushes locally, but was not satisfied they were the cold hardy version. My pomegranate bush arrived well packaged and arrived moist and in good condition. I unpacked it immediately. Some leaves started to fall off, and I knew I must get it in the ground ASAP. About 3 days after arrival (Labor Day weekend), I got it in the ground, kept it watered and crossed my fingers hoping for the best. I'm happy to say my pomegranate bush has new growth and is flourishing. I guess the true test is how it will weather the winter here in Albuquerque, NM. I am praying it will survive, as the winters are cold here, and that I will have renewed growth in the spring. Looking forward to fruit by the second year!

    Hi Mary - Thanks so much for taking the time to provide us with your review. We're happy to hear that you were pleased with the quality of the Pomegranate. During transit, while a plant that likes full sun is in a dark environment for a few days, it's normal for a few leaves to fall off. Glad to hear it's performing good after you planted it. Russian 26 is one of if not the most cold hardy pomegranates on the market. It is listed as cold hardy to -10 degrees F so should be okay in Albuquerque, NM. If temps are forecast to drop below zero it might be a good idea to wrap the plant in a sheet or some other material to help insulate the branches. An extra layer of mulch that can be removed in spring can be applied to help keep the roots warm. The Russian 26 we have growing in our gardens survived 5 degrees F this past winter with no problems at all. Keep us posted as to how yours does there in Albuquerque, and let us know if there's ever anything else we can help you with. We're at you service!

    It was amazing what wonderful conidtion it arrived in.

    The only negative comment I would make is that it shipped out right before a holiday weekend, so the plant was boxed up, out of the sunlight, for almost a week. Perhaps it may be better to hold off on shipping until after a holiday weekend, to minimize transit time, plant stress. Overall this was a great price for the size and condition of a very specific plant that I wanted.

    Hi Richard - Thanks for taking the time to provide us and others with your review! Glad to hear you're happy with the size of the plant. We will also take your advice about shipping too close to a holiday weekend. We certainly appreciate the advice and your business and let us know if there's ever anything else we can help you with.

    I bought 2 of the 3 gallon size Russian 26 Pomegranate last June. The unusual cold temperatures over the winter killed them all. You sent me two replacements for those in May of this year and I was happy you wavered my delivery cost. I plan on buying 2 more. Xianjian Ma

    What else can I say? I haven't planted it yet, but the tree I just received (3 gallon size) looks amazing. I also need to be sure to give some praise to the customer service team. They have been very friendly and responsive. I would happily recommend this company to others.

    I didn't see how plants of this size could be shipped through the mail, but I really wanted to try to add Russian pomegranate to my garden. I was very impressed on how they were secured and shipped and I took photos to share on Facebook. All plants in the order were extremely healthy and are doing great in the garden. I highly recommend this company for acquiring plants that are difficult to find locally.

    It's growing really great. I'm very happy. Thanks so much.

    I ordered pomegranate plants from three different sources, including one from Gardener Direct. This order was in the middle from the price prospective, but clearly the best in delivery speed, packing, and plant health condition. One month later, this plant looks significantly better than the other ones.

    The plant arrived in wonderful condition, leafed out with a tiny pomegranate on one of the branches. The plant was potted with the pot stapled to the packaging then the pot was covered so that the soil stayed inside. Great job, the plant is doing well and I am very satisfied. Thanks.

    Ordering was really easy. Delivery was quick. Plants arrive boxed neatly and professionally. Plants were well protected and watered to survive shipping. I ordered a pair of trees. One had tender green bark and the other was dried and doubtful it will survive when planted. Too early to tell its outcome. But overall, I would order again. Trees are about 2’ tall in one gallon pots with dirt.
