I have one issue. In my pomegranate orchard, the harvested fruits have not changed their outer colour from green to red.
It is still green in colour but on breaking, the arils inside are red in colour indicating that is it is matured... But the colour of the outer skin has not changed Remedial measures, and the main cause of my problem?
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.
