Luke, they do it all for marketing. For instance, 'Crab' is called "Red Silk" which most would agree is a nicer sounding name for a fruit. They use names associated with fabrics for most of the various pomegranates they market.

If you have much room, you might want to contact Dr. Bill Castle. Check out his web site at Citrus - UF/IFAS Extension: Solutions for Your Life and check out the link for "Available plants". I don't have any idea of what level of participation is required to be eligible.
