A compact bushy pomegranate that's hardy to heat, cold and drought. Originally from Uzbekistan, 'Kazake' bears fruit with a yellowish skin and vibrant red arils. The fruit is more resistant to splitting due to the firm calyx on the fruit. An excellent garden variety that could also be planted as an edible hedge. Self-pollinating.
Pomegranates grow well in areas with cold winters and hot, dry summers. Drought tolerant once established, pomegranates will also tolerate coastal conditions and frost. Water during fruiting to improve quality and fruit set. Plant in a free-draining soil as trees dislike waterlogging. Plants are self-fertile but yield is improved with cross-pollination.
