Where can I find "seedless" pomegranates in Boston?

A few years ago, I was introduced to so-called "seedless" pomegranates, which have much softer seeds that can be swallowed easily, as well as a sweeter taste. I've never been able to find them in Boston.

Bonus points: I'm also looking for a place that sells Calimyrna figs and feijoa.

I've never heard of seedless pomegranates, let alone seen them around town, but you might try calling some of the specialty food places in the area. A. Russo & Son's in Watertown, Hi-Lo in JP often has unusual fruits, you could try the asian markets. I sometimes have luck finding weird things at Farmer's Bounty in Davis.

No answer on where to buy the fruits, but apparently you can sometimes buy Angel Red soft-seeded pomegranate trees to raise in containers or in warmer planting zones than Boston.

Try eating pom when it is ripe - I.e. Cracked.

The seeds are much softer.

If you were looking for figs, now is the time of year when they are ripe and in both Whole Foods and Trader Joe's. I'm not sure which are "Calimyrna", to be honest, but NOW is the time for fresh figs.

If you're looking for dried, I'd suggest Trader Joe's as well.
