Growing soft seed pomegranates in the south

Chris-7b-GA(7b)February 22, 2013

I just got my shipment of the softseed varieties:
Parfyanka, Desertnyi, Sirenevyi, Sin-Pepi in 1 gallon pots.
I live in a northern suburb of Atlanta right on the border between the new zones 7 and 8.

I am debating weather to grow them in pots to be brought in during the winter or risk growing them outside in a sunny spot.

Anyone have these varieties that can offer some suggestions? Thanks, Chris.

What does your local extension people say? I'd sure be tempted to consider the in-ground planting if at all possible. Container culture can be challenging.
