The Salavatski Pomegranate produces red flowers in summer and delicious red fruit in early fall. It's a cold hardy variety that may be able to withstand temperatures down to -6F. This Afghanistani pomegranate is also known as Russian-Turk.

  • Average mature height: 10 feet 
  • Container growing? Yes. Prune pomegranates as a bush with 3 to 6 main trunks and top them off to keep the height manageable.
  • Fertilizer: Nitrogen/Phosphorus/Potassium in a 3/1/6 ratio
  • Light: Full sun is ideal, but pomegranates will be fine in mostly sunny conditions too.
  • Soil: Pomegranates adapt to most well-drained soils. They can grow in nutritionally poor soil but they do best in loamy soil.
  • Zones: Perennial 7-10 (Pomegranates love warm, tropical climates but can take some cold without getting severely injured.)
