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!
