The early fruiting pomegranates should give you a better yield, I am  
not enought summer heat and humid conditions are the problem. The early
fruiting Central Asian varieties should be the best bet. As cold  
is not the problem with your location, I would suggest a Sweet, Soft- 
variety such as "Sumbar" or "Sverchranniy". If you want to test these
varieties let me know and I will put you on my list for cuttings in
february, all I ask is postage and a report back sometime in the  
future. As
you have sent your address all that is needed is a affirmative  
reponsive and
I will try to get the cuttings to you then.
