Three months ago, I planted several seed from a pomegranate that I purchased from Krogers. Would they bear fruits?

    Are the plants sprouting? If they sprout and grow you should probably get fruits but if they don't sprout, you could try cuttings from a pomegrante tree.

    You should have seen signs of life about six weeks after you planted your pomegranate seeds. The problem is that seeds don't produce true-to-type. Because of that, taking a cutting, as Erica suggests, is considered a better means of propagation.

    Thanks Erica and Douglas. Yes! I have 10 healthy pomegranate plants now about 4" - 6" tall.
