Coastal SoCal Pomegranates

Kippy(SoCal zone 10. Sunset Zone 24)December 17, 2012

I have a Red Angel and what I think is a Wonderful (in not a wonderful location)

Is there a pom that anyone in a similar location recommends?

From San Diego edible.org

Pomegranates for the Coast � Sunset zone 24

Granada
Warning to those who are growing short season pomegranates in warmer climates the cultivars bred for cooler climates might develop hard seeds and an off flavor when grown in warmer areas. The reverse is true too. Warm weather pomegranates grown on the coast your fruit might not mature or come to its full
flavor potential. I was unable to get information on seed hardness for most of the short season pomegranates.

Golden Globe ~ softish seeds with bright reddish-orange flowers that bloom over a long season.
Eversweet ~ Red skinned fruit with clear arils. Juice from arils is reported not to stain. In some areas seems to be bi-annual bearer but may depend on area.
Granada ~ Sweet with a slight tart taste. Skin is dark red and fruit is medium sized

Francis ~ From Jamaica, frost sensitive has large sweet
fruit with some split resistance. Good fruit producer.
Sweet ~ Large light red/pink fruit with very sweet taste.
Early bearing productive plant. Frost sensitive.
