Salavatski has a very strong reputation of being one of the hardiest pomegranate varieties there is. With every nursery making claims in addition to 4 friends in the area having successful trees every year, what could I lose?
This spring I was in shock because not only did it pull through the winter, but there's not a single sign of damage. Not even from desiccation. I should be rolling in the poms come fall. Crossing my fingers for less rain and an early season.
