The Salavatski Pomegranate (Punica granatum) goes by many names, such as Salavatski Pomegranate, Sweet Salavatski, Russian-Turk, and Russian Red Pomegranate. But whichever name you prefer, the Salavatski Pomegranate is a cold-hardy fruit tree that will thrive in cold climates (down to -6ºF) that may be usuitable for many other Pomegranate varieties. Salavatski Pomegranates are red and green-streaked and glossy when ripe, and they contain edible crunchy seeds covered in red, juicy, sweet pulp that are prized for their flavor and rich in antioxidants.
Salavatski Pomegranate Trees can grow in the ground in USDA growing Zones 8 to 10, or in pots in Zones 4 to 10. They like rich, moist soil, full sun, and good air flow. Salavatski Pomegranate Trees grow to about 10 feet tall and 8 to 12 feet wide. This smaller size makes them perfect for the new small garden or an already planted edible landscape. The trees are self-pollinating, the trees bloom in spring, and their fruit ripens in late fall. The Salavatski Pomegranate Trees can grow 1 to 2 feet per year and they can be kept at a small size by annual trimming.
