Anyone heard of Rosavaya Pomegranate?

fabaceae_nativeMay 13, 2012

I saw a bunch of small plants of this variety at the local Sunflower Market, and the only info I've gotten so far online consists of two things:

1. It's a Russian cultivar

2. It's an especially sweet variety good for the home garden

Does anyone out there know how it compares to Wonderful in terms of taste, size, productivity, and especially ripening time? It was so nice to see something other than Wonderful for sale, but disappointing to not find any important info on this variety.

Seems like most are promoted on .au Australian websites so maybe a variety grown more over there than here, maybe can contact one of the nurseries like

Found some websites saying:
Pomegranate very hardy to 1.0 meters? you should be able to
keep them low. Watch fruit split with winter rain.

Gulosha rosavaya � From Russia with love comes this perfect pomegranate � light pink, large sized fruit bears masses of sweet, juicy, slightly acidic seeds that are truly divine.

Here's some more first hand useful info, maybe can contact whoever posted them:
