pecans/pomegranates in Georgia

rolf_jacobsOctober 28, 2008

I am doing some commercial landscaping at a mobile home community in Madison, GA. The residents have expressed an interest in edible nut crops and I also thought pomegranates might be fun.

What pecan varieties would be good for this area?

Can you recommend any other nut crops?

Can I grow pomegranates in this climate/soil?

Do you recommend any particular types?

These trees would be planted out in a field far away from homes or utilities. They'll get watered and fertilized for perhaps 2-3 years and then they are on their own.

Thanks for any help.

Rolf

See the article linked below for recommendations on pecan varieties for home/low-input plantings.

Here is a link that might be useful: Pecans for home & low-input plantings

Madison, GA is apparently in USDA zone 7B, which is also apparently the coldest USDA zone a pomegranate will grow in, with out cold protection.

You can't always go by USDA zone stuff, because they're not always right 100% of the time, but I believe pomegranates are grown in South Carolina, which should have a similar cold season as Georgia.

I'm sure some one will come along this thread eventually that grows them there and will comment.
