Pomegranate Trees

Jane Alkaline added on October 22, 2017 | Answered

For the third year in a row, the seeds never turned red, although the outsides look perfect. Some of the fruit IS sweet, others have no taste. The tree grows in the Mojave Desert, at least 20 years old, poor soil, but I have tried to water at least twice a week, more when temps are above 110 degrees. Last year most of the seeds sprouted before they should have been ripe. Thank you Jane
