Each cultivar has its own color for the ripe fruit. Rather than looking at the color of the fruit, look at its size. Fully grown pomegranates will measure between 2 and 5 inches across. If you are still unsure if the fruit is ripe, do what the pomegranate farmers do, and tap the fruit with your finger and listen for the metallic sound of ripe pomegranates.
