Hello America !
My name is Vladimiro and I'm Italian.
I live in northeast Italy in Monselice which is a small town 40 miles from Venice.
I live in zone 8 b
I am a collector of rare fruit trees, and I'm a member of this famous non-profit association based in France:
http://www.coplfr.org/
and this is our data-base:
http://www.coplfr.org/choixfruitiers4.html

right now I'm looking for a pomegranate called: Haku-botan or Hoku botan,
can anyone help me?

I am very happy to be here with you

Vladimiro

Thanks RodneyS is a pleasure to be here with you!
The bottarga (good) is very expensive and is not produced in my region, even if we have the tradition of many cook fish.
This is a typical way of cooking the fish in my area, I'll put the recipe:

Very beautiful your collection of fruit trees!
much of your fruits are tropical and only figs can live in my climate.
I write sometimes on a forum of figs:

Yes. Sorbus domestica. I think it is used in apple wines?

in Italy we have a rare hybrid between Sorbus torminalis and Malus silvestris, it is the Malus florentina:
