Q.Can I Prune A Wonderful Pomegranate Tree Down To Dwarf Size?

Zone 84117 | Anonymous added on April 23, 2021 | Answered

I live in Salt Lake City, Utah, a cold climate. Last September I was given a Wonderful Pomegranate tree. The information said it will grow to about 10 feet in height. I put it in a pot and kept it warm and well lighted all winter. I have it out now and it is growing well and has leaves all over it. It is 3-4 feet tall. I want to keep it in the pot so that I can put it back in my garage next winter and put lights on it again. I do not want it to grow the full 10 feet but prefer 6 feet. Is there anyway to prune it so it doesn’t grow to the full 10 feet height and also produces fruit?

Dwarf pomegranates might do better in containers, but here's an article about pruning and one about how to grow them in a pot. Hope this helps:
