I am a locally grown produce distributor located in Los Angeles. I am interested in bringing different and unique varieties of pomegranates to market. Feel free to contact me to discuss ways we can work together. Thank you.

Getting to good sugar without cracking is important. If these are all fully mature fruit, then that is encouraging.

Hi Mr. Carter,  
We are avid gardeners and live in the bay area(east bay hills). We have many fruit trees in our backyard including 4 pomegranates, - wonderful, Eversweet, Parfianka & sweet. We have had wonderful for a few years and haven't tried the others yet as they are still young. Parfianka is flowering right now and can't wait to try the fruit this fall. Hoping we would get atleast a few from Eversweet & Sweet next year.  
As always looking to try new varieties, where can we buy Phoenicia and other varieties.  
Thank you

I think I have a Blaze variety in my backyard! The fruit is pale pink with a mild sweet flavor. The house has UCR connections, so I'm pretty sure this might be one of Mr. Chater's grandfather's trees - so cool! It's at least 30 years old, so I'm learning how to propagate a few new trees, and stumbled on this article while learning about my tree. :-)

Hi, there,  
I have a farm at coastal Georgia, zone 9. I am looking for some soft aril pomegranate to our farm. PLEASE let me know if you have these soft aril varieties to share. Thank you!

I have a unknown Variety of Pomegranate that doesn't ripen until late October and usually not until November. The original tree is growing in Pomona, Ca. but where my husbands Aunt and Uncle got it from is unknown since they are not living to ask them. I think it might be Sharp Velvet, but I am not sure. The fruit is a dark red with a garnet red flesh. If anyone would like cuttings I am cutting it well back this year and I am attending the CRFG meeting at the LA Arboretum on Saturday, Feb 2 and will be taking some cuttings.

Al-sirin-nar is rocking it in my backyard in North Texas. Planted it one year ago. Cold hardy, I believe, so may thrive here.

I understand from researching that there are over 700 varieties of poms! wow!
