pomegranate seeds

tjaranchJanuary 7, 2009

Apples from seeds can taste awful, and so can citrus. But some fruits are naturally sweet (think wild blackberries) and I'm wondering where pomegranates fall. I started a bunch from seeds--they're now about 2" tall and healthy. But then it occured to me that genetic variability may give them poorer fruit quality. I know that if you want to be sure, you should do cuttings, but what I have is starts from seed. I'd hate to put 2+ years in them if they're going to be terrible, but I'd also hate to dump them needlessly. Does anyone have experience with this?

why takea chance use the seedlings as grafting root stock or start over with cuttings of known fruit quality.
Save one seedling as an experiment & let us all know the results. (if fruit is "good")
