Pomegranate Russian Fruits Dr. Chris Inhulsen, Montezuma, Ga., tested Russian & Iranian pomegranates and found they survived winters where the popular "Wonderful" variety killed to the ground. The plants were reported to take -6 degrees F once, and at Montezuma, GA., 8 degrees F. Salavatski was his first choice for hardy, dependable, high quality fruit. The fruits as large as the store-bought "Wonderful" variety, and are orange-red in skin and red arils. Like "Wonderful" it is a hard seeded variety. According to Dr. Levin, the originator of the variety, the hard seeded varieties can withstand colder temperatures by a few degrees than the soft seeded varieties. We can thank Dr. Levin for the many pomegranate varieties.He has given us a new fruit for our area that is beautiful and easy to grow. At our nursery in Virginia, Salavatski has fruited yearly without winter damage to the plant. Space 8' to 10' circle. It's best to plant out of the winter winds. More protection and less in the open helps especially with younger plants. Salavatski has ripened in Lancaster, PA(Zone 6) planted on the south side of a home. Zones 7-10.
