Q.Possible Problem With Pomegranate Tree

Anonymous added on September 11, 2011 | Answered

I live in a Mediterranean type climate (Central Valley, California- really hot (100+) and dry, no rain from June to Sept or Oct). I also have clay soil. When we planted the pomegranate tree, the soil was not amended (we disagreed and he won). Could the clay soil be the reason the leaves are curling? They curl about a month after leafing out and stay that way all season. There is no evidence of pests or disease and this year (3 yrs after planting) the tree would have knocked itself over with fruit if I hadn’t thinned it. I don’t know what the fruit tastes like yet. Should we be worried? If we need to amend the soil, how does one do that around a tree with an obviously good root system already?
