Yekaterinburg's Kazantsev garden celebrates 100th anniversary
Plotted on 22 acres in the Middle Urals district, the garden was created by Dmitry Kazantsev as an apple tree orchard in 1914. Kazantsev would go on to win medals for his work in the field of horticulture as he refined methods of growing apples, limes and raspberries in the harsh Ural climate. Kazantsev died in 1942, Oblastnaya Gazeta reports.
Today, the Kazantsev garden is owned by a coalition of Yekaterinburg businesses and is tended to by a full-time staff of horticulturalists. In commemoration of the garden's 100th anniversary, the facility's staff have planted a large quantity of red apple trees, the same variety Dmitry Kazantsev began planting in 1914.
Visitors of Kazantsev garden will have the chance to see the facility's blossoming fig trees, the first ever grown at Kazantsev garden. Also in bloom are three varieties of cherries. Paying guests are free to sample fruit from Kazantsev garden, which are grown without the use of nitrates and heavy metals, according to Oblastnaya Gazeta.
