Strawberries are naturally in season between June and August. You can get a
little more range on the backend by choosing the right varietals. You can
extend the harvest into May by being further South. You can have them year
round with a greenhouse.
According to James H. LaRue, pomegranates (being grown in California) are in
season September to February.
