There is one more very big difference.  POMONA is goes to 2500 homes of the
NAFEX menbers.  This list comprises only of 150 individuals.

Many of the POMONA subscribers are quite senior p[eople and having a
valuable experience of fruit growing.

So I do not think that the two are comparable at all.
