During their peak season (late summer into fall) they are sold just off the Ajijic plaza (in front of bank), both whole and also just the seeds by the cupful.  Pomegranates = Granadas, in Spanish.

Central Mexico's pomegranate season starts in late July and ends in October or early November.  What you might see in supermarkets now are pomegranates from Chile.  They are labeled with a little sticker giving their place of origin.  Their color and flavor are not the same as the Mexican ones.

Our experience is pomegranates need a helping hand to produce large ripe fruit. The fruits, not the leaves, have to be fully bagged with small size insect mesh bag to keep away the wasps which drill and plant their eggs in them. If the wasps get them, break them open and hang them on trees for birds. Hopefully they will eat the dxxmed worms too!
