Commercial production of pomegranates in Australia began in the early 2000s and by 2021 the industry had an estimated gross value of production of $10.4 million. The market for Australian pomegranates is growing and includes whole fresh fruit, juices, ready-to-eat and frozen arils, and nutraceuticals. There are also significant opportunities for the Australian industry internationally with the ability to market a counter-seasonal product in the northern hemisphere.

This Australian Pomegranate Management Guide has been developed for existing and new growers to support production of pomegranates and help the industry grow. The guide provides clear guidelines and practical advice for producing pomegranates in Australia. It starts with considerations around orchard selection; tree, nutrient and irrigation management; soil health; and management of pests and chemicals through to harvesting; and quality assurance for the final product.
