Is it a pomegranate trunk or sucker?
I planted my Angel Red pomegranate tree a few weeks ago. Not for decoration but to grow numerous, healthy, delicious fruit. My question is for the thinner trunk growing away from the two main trunks. I don't know if it actually is a trunk or a well grown sucker/nutrient hog. What is it? And should I remove it?

Judging by the photo, this was likely a sucker that was allowed to grow and fully develop. You will probably want to consider removal because it looks like it is already leaning to grow away from the two main trunks and, by removing it, more energy will be expended on your two main trunk trees.
