Q.

Should I Replace My Pomegranate Tree?

Zone 9 | LadyJane added on March 30, 2013 | Answered

I live in Southern California and we had a cold winter this year. My pomegranate tree has only one branch that has leaves on it. It's only 2 years old. I can see shoots like the tree was going to leaf but died back. Should I cut off all the branches except the one with leaves? Not sure what to do at this time. It gave beautiful fruit in the 2 years I had it. Thank you. LadyJane

I would wait a little longer, 4-6 weeks, to make sure that the tree doesn't leaf out late. You may get new growth on other areas of your tree as well. If the only part of the plant to survive is the one branch, then consider replacing.
