Nevertheless, pomegranates are among the most valuable fruits present in this farming simulator.

The Pomegranate Tree-AboutStardew Valley Pomegranate Trees

The Pomegranate tree is among eight other fruit trees in Stardew Valley, including the Apple tree, Peach tree, Mango tree, Orange tree, Banana tree, Cherry tree, and Apricot tree. You can plant the seeds and yield fruits when a tree reaches its maturity. Pomegranate trees grow one pomegranate every day in the fall season and have the maximum capacity of producing three pomegranates every three days.

Where Can You Buy Or Grow A Pomegranate Tree?

Players can buy the pomegranate saplings from the Traveling Cart for around 4,500–7,500 gold or from Pierre’s General Store for 6,000 gold. You can also find them wandering in the Treasure Rooms of Skull Cavern. Pomegranate saplings will only reach maturity when placed in the middle of a 3×3 grid with empty surroundings. That means the tiles around the tree should be free of any objects such as flooring, pathing, and debris such as stones and grass. 

Any item or object in the surrounding tiles of a tree can reduce its growth rate. So, if you notice your pomegranate tree is not growing correctly, you can simply empty the surroundings, and you’re good to go. Moreover, pomegranate trees are only grown in three places: 

  1. The Ginger Island Farm
  2. The Greenhouse
  3. The main farm

How Are Pomegranate Trees Planted And Harvested?Pomegranate Trees Stardew Valley

Like other fruit trees, pomegranate seedlings should be grown in untiled soil. That means the soil must not be tilled with a hoe. Pomegranate trees can be grown in a 3×3 grid with empty surroundings until they mature.

Once you buy pomegranate seedlings, you can select an empty 3×3 space and walk to the middle where you wish to plant the tree, and right-click to drop seedlings. Be careful when planting the saplings because there is no turning back once planted, and you can’t get them back. In Stardew Valley, pomegranate saplings are quite expensive and should be utilized properly. 

If the pomegranate tree becomes mature, it can produce one (1) pomegranate each day during the fall season. If placed in the Ginger Island or Greenhouse, it can bear one pomegranate each day, regardless of the harvesting season. Remember, the fruit tree can only accumulate three pomegranates in three days. You can harvest and collect pomegranate fruit by walking near the fruit tree and start right-clicking to drop them down. The fruit will drop and then be added to your inventory.
