Growing from fermented pomegranates

I held some pomegranates back this year from a tree on the property so I could try to germinate some of their seeds. Problem is I forgot about them and now the fruits are sitting in a bucket, fermented and with a little mold growing on them.

I've never grown a tree from seed. Would the fermentation/mold cause any problems with the seed growing? Basically...is it still worth my time to get some seedlings out of them?

Some seeds do better if the fruit has fermented, like tomatoes. I am not sure about pomegrantes, but I doubt it would hurt.

I've been told that in Permaculture, when we ask "Can I", the answer is pretty much, always, "Yes" and if we ask, "What If", the answer usually is, it really doesn't matter, so other than a few moments of your time what can you lose? Put a few seeds out, do whatever seed starting prep that you like doing and see. You won't know, unless you try, to me that would really 'bug' the hell out of me, until I knew or tried it. You might be pleasantly surprised...
