Demand for pomegranates
Pomegranates are deciduous in cool climates and semi deciduous in warmer climates like the sub tropics. They are very hardy plants and can grow in a wide range of soils but prefer a pH of 5.5 to 7. They grow well if watered occasionally in summer and provided with organic fertilizer. They will tolerate drought conditions once established and can grow to a height of about 4 meters . A light pruning in winter to remove any dead wood is recommended. They are attractive small trees with glossy leaves and large showy red flowers.
Less than 2% of pomegranate production occurs in the southern hemisphere and Australia imports most of its pomegranate products . It is for this reason that the market demand for pomegranate products in this country is high. The economic potential for pomegranate products including juice can be found on the Agrifutures website.
