If you're looking for a large-fruited pomegranate that can be grown in a container, then 'Big Red' is for you. The fruit quality is very good and it can reach the size of store bought pomegranates. The fruit has a leathery, deep-red outer rind with juicy red pomegranate seeds inside. The fruit ripens in late fall before plants go dormant for the season. Selected for its low chill dormancy requirements, 'Big Red' will flower as far south as central Florida and is hardy to zone 8 in the north. The chill requirements can easily be reached by leaving the potted plant outside until late fall. The dormant plant can be stored in cold buildings without light as long as the temperatures are not below freezing and not above 40 °F. In the spring, bring plants outside as soon as the weather warms up.
