Pomegranates in humid climates?

I could in theory grow pomegranates in my zone but I had read various things about how they don't like humid weather. For example in the CRFG Fruit Facts I see something about fruit formation adversely affected by humidity. They also mention they rarely fruit as far north as DC. Does anyone have any more knowledge of this topic? Maybe some varieties are better than others? Maybe they produce fruit but it just doesn't taste any good? Also what time of year is humidity bad for them? Its not so bad in the early summer here, it is only in July/Aug that the humidity kicks in. I see that Just Fruits and Exotics in Florida is selling them, so somebody must like them in humid climates.
