They look great. DOes it have a different flavor, hardiness, or other characteristics than other pomegranates?

I live in the NW of the USA and we look for varieties that can withstand cold and wet winter and can fruit with less heat than most pomegranates.
Thanks

Valdez,

Sounds like a worthy pomegranate to grow. I am growing about 5-7 varieties of pomegranate right now.

Anyone know what the common name or what cultivar this would be known as here in the states? I have the standard 'wonderful' and would love some variety.

Not sure what this cultivar would be called. However, I would recommend getting 'Angel Red' pomegranate.
