Don't think I've got the jubblies to make it work - or the hips !

You'll have to come up with another fantasy :D

I had one planted and loved it to death
It looked a little sick,wilted leaves,I thought it was too dry so I kept giving it some water.

Probably got too much by being near another plants watering system
(I gave one to a neighbour in Melbourne he never watered it and it slowly died)
So I think they like some but not much water.

I like the fruit,good for juice and salads and middle eastern dishes.
Good for prostates too
Im in my mid 40's so I better plant one soon :ohdear:

Snags, you probably know this already, so please don't get offended, but just in case - you do know they're deciduous don't you ?

Mine looks like a dead stick for 3 months of the year.

I'm not offended we all don't know each others skill set,until we post some more.(my father and mother were both farmers, I have grown up with deciduous fruit trees over 40 years)
I grew up in Victoria so have very little experience with sub tropical climates though( I am learning quick )
It went beyond deciduous
I think part of the problem was it was too small,couldn't handle the love and the wet season
I bought it as a seedling,it started going backwards almost immediately, it just disappeared,combination of rot and maybe something eating it.
It had a trunk the size of a match stick,and was only 6 inches when I planted it.
Its a tough task I suppose to try and grow a Mediterranean climate plant in a subtropical climate.
Dry summer as compared to wet summer is a killer
Figs work, grapes work so I would hope these work too eventually

Evidently there is such a thing... ... anate+Tree

Or perhaps it could be water stress?

I have a poor struggling pomegranate tree which seems to be the favourite treat for every coastal white snail in the district. Tried all the tricks in the book.... Copper, shell grit, coffee grounds.... Gaaah! Next trick is free range ducks?!

Interesting. To read about the golf all ornametal ones, maybe my tree is on of them... Not just munted!
