I was surprised to hear from Mushybanna that pomegranates weren't grown there...as they are very hardy large shrub. They do need very hot temps to develop fruit though. They are commercially grown in the central valleys of California where the average high temps in summer are 98 degrees F. / 37 degrees C.
