How long for bare root pomegranate to leaf out?

15 years ago

I ordered a bare root angel red pomegranate from Willis Orchards. Pleading ignorance, my wife and I were surprised that it was delivered bare-branched, as well! Having never purchased bare root before, I always thought that just meant the tree was dug in the field and had the soil removed from around the roots for shipping. A call to Willis educated me to the fact that the tree was dormant (so I assume it had been kept in cold storage) and should leaf out "in a few weeks." It was planted May 5, and still shows no sign of lifek, not even a hint of a leaf bud. In the experience of you experts here, about how long should we expect for it to leaf out, here in Louisiana?
