The Russian (Salavatski) Pomegranate is a very cold hardy Pomegranate which has been reported to shrug off temperatures down to zero degrees . The variety "Salavatski" is also known as "Russian-Turk" or simply "Russian Pom".
Russian Pomegranates are all quite hardy.

Salavatski has large red tinted fruits formed behind the most spectacular flowers you have seen. The seeds, or arils, are red in color. The juice is quite good while a bit tart. History says the Salavatski Pomegranate found it's way to the US from Afghanistan by way of the US Department of Agriculture Department in Georgia. Edible seeds are full of anti-oxidants, but we have noticed that the more cold hardy the Pomegranate is , the tougher the seeds are.
