More about Russian 26 Pomegranate...

The most cold and heat tolerant Pomegranate we've ever grown! 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.

But the great attributes don't stop with cold hardiness...

In spring, your Russian 26 will produce bright orange single flowers that really light up the garden, and are self-pollinating...meaning you only have to plant one. The flowers are followed by large, bright orange-red fruit that are filled with delectable, nutrient-packed, dark red seeds that are amazingly sweet - said to be the sweetest of any pomegranate!

Russian 26 is as heat tolerant as it is cold tolerant. It prefers full sun for best fruit production and is adaptable to almost any type of well-drained soil.

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-red fruit which is considered to be among the sweetest among the species and among other fruits in general.

USES

The Russian 26 Pomegranate can be grown as a large shrub or small tree that all grown up will reach about 10 feet tall with an equal spread. Because it's glossy green foliage remains attractive throughout the growing season, Russian 26 is a perfect selection for the edible ornamental landscape.

by Mary - Albuquerque, New Mexico

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!

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.

First Time Mail Order for Plants

by Thomas - Abilene, Texas

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.

Great source

by Leo - Lilburn, Georgia

I ordered pomegranate plants from three different sources, including one from ToGoGarden.com. 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.

by Barrie - Norfork, AR United States

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.

by Ken - Thornfield, MO United States

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.
