Steven, the shorter-season varieties I was referring to there are kiwis. Blake and Exbury are two particular ones I am trying. For pomegranates my impression is most of the hardy ones ripen early enough so season length is not as big a problem as it is with fuzzy kiwis. Ashton's excellent book on pomegranates has good information on hardy pomegranates.
