Pomegranates

What is the secret to growing sweet fruit on my pomegranates, please? I saw an article own telly a few days ago from an orchardist saying that it was tricky to get the fruit sweet but they didn't say what the secret is. Can you help? My trees are quite vigorous and they are fruiting well.

    Hmmm, I'm not sure what the 'secret' would be.
    Choosing a variety suitable to your growing zone and optimizing it's care is the best way to have healthy and flavorful fruit.
    You may want to check with your County Extension Office to find a list of the varieties suitable to your region.
