Abstract: ArticleIn India, pomegranate is considered as a crop of the arid and semi-arid regions because it withstands different soil and climatic stresses. It thrives best under hot dry summer and cold winter provided irrigation facilities are available. The tree requires hot and dry climate during fruit development and ripening (Patil & Karale, 1990). It cannot produce sweet fruits unless the temperature is high for a sufficiently long period. Humid climate lowers the quality of fruits and increases incidence of fungal diseases (Llacer et al, 1994). The pomegranate tree is deciduous in areas of low winter temperature and an evergreen or partially deciduous in tropical and subtropical conditions. The pomegranate tree can withstand low temperatures in the winter and is drought and salt-tolerant. As pomegranate is hardy in nature having wide adaptability, low maintenance cost with huge returns. The fruit is consumed fresh or can be processed into juice, syrup, jams, jelly or even wine.
