My Russian Pomegranates
I've posted here before on my "Russian" pomegranates (no better varietal info when purchased).
The climate warming issue and zone creep seems to have finally helped me get some results. I planted them probably in 2004. Had kept them in pots before that.
Several winters they died back to the ground. Several years a freeze got the fruit.
But, the last 2 years they didn't die back and last year I got a five gallon bucket full of fruit! It was good. Compared to the "Wonderful" variety in most stores I would say it was sweeter and a little less tart.
So far this winter I would say they haven't frozen back. Though, they haven't budded out here yet so don't know for sure. Hopefully they have gotten a little acclimatized on when to come out here?
