Hi, Kwasi --

Pomegranates are native to Iran, so they would grow well in any dry sunny area of your country. They do not like wet soil or full shade.

There are many varieties of pomegranate, so it might be worth trying a few different ones to see which work well for your area. You can grow pomegranates from seed, cuttings, or plants.

As far as the specific fruits and vegetables that grow best in Ghana, I would recommend you contact your local agricultural office or the nearest agriculture university. They should have these lists for you.

Thanks for writing!

Patty

Yes! pomogranates can grow in Ghana
by: MIchael Lamptey

It was about two years ago when i planted the pomogranate but at first i thought it wont grow because my father had told me it won't grow. Nevertheless, i still looked after it for some months hoping to see some flowers grow on it but nothing happened. I took my mind off it for a whole year as it kept growing and growing. I dont actually know what environmental factor or factors supported the growth of the pomogranate.

Now the pomogranate has now grown fruits and has made me extremely happy because i never thought it could even grow. I don't know what type of pomogranate i have planted but the fact it has grown and produced fruits successfully, i believe that any pomogranate can grow in Ghana. Am in Accra and i don't know about the regions.
i hope this answers your question and you can email me on mickylamp2.ml@gmail.com if you have questions.

Thank you, Michael!

I hope that Kwasi will see your message and contact you.
